It’s always a great day to visit the zoo! In this delightful counting book, your child will meet playful kangaroos, colorful peacocks, gentle doves, and inquisitive cows while learning number concepts.
The book was inspired by author Elvy Rolle’s field trips to the zoo while she worked with preschool children as a speech-language pathologist.
“As I observed the children, it occurred to me that an interactive book on this theme would be a fun way for them to revisit the zoo,” she says. “I hope that Five Little Children at the Zoo will inspire the imagination and creativity of young children, as well as enhance their oral language and early literacy connections, as they listen to and interact with the story.”
There is a preview of this book available (PDF file; will open in a new window).
Elvy Rolle loves walking on trails in the woods, watching ocean waves, gazing at stars on a clear night—and yes, visiting the zoo! A retired speech-language pathologist, she worked in early childhood special education and is now a Christian author and singer.
