Book of the Week: My Friends at the Zoo by Richard Paniello illustrated by Vicky Knoll

Today’s book is an adorable story about a little girl’s day at the zoo. Her romp with the animals is sure to grab any child’s imagination. She makes the peacock a fancy hat, swims with the otters and skips rope with the elephants. Her adventures continue all day long with many more animals in the zoo.

Richard Paniello really has a way with rhyming in a very vivid way. Along with Vicky Knoll’s illustrations you are that little girl enjoying yourself at the zoo.

Reading “My Friends at the Zoo” will make you put on your sneakers and head for your local zoo.

So what does Richard do to take his book beyond reading? Besides whetting your imagination, he has an activities page over at his web site. There you’ll find coloring pages and links to other great kid sites.
