FRAIDYZOO by Thyra Heder

Lexile     Not Rated          Pages     48          Ages 4 - 8

Little T's family wants to go to the zoo.  When she says she is afraid to go to the zoo they ask, "Why?"  But Little T can't remember. So begins the adventure of Little T's family and their quest to discover why she is afraid of the zoo.

This is the cutest book! At first glance, it's a book about being afraid of going to the zoo. After you've read a few pages, you discover Fraidyzoo is a wonderfully imaginative ABC book!  It will get your little one's thinking cap buzzing (and sometimes yours too!) as it displays some of the letters, but sometimes just gives hints about what animal is being portrayed by Little T's family with their creative animal costumes made from everyday things around the house.  The story teaches not only letters, but also alphabetical order and letter sounds as well as creativity.  The twist at the end of the story will give all readers a good laugh.

Fraidyzoo is a must for any child's library.

Happy Reading!
