  • I checked this one out from the library, enjoyed the illustrations, thought briefly about ordering artwork like this for the boy s bedroom, went through it all once, and then returned it.Several months later it ended up in our library bag again, and this time Lachlan and I spent 50 minutes pouring over every page in this wordless book We overlooked so many funny things the first time around There are stories that take place on every page, surprises we had never noticed, it was really brilliant.A [...]

  • Can I really read a book that has no words Well, the pictures are lovely and my children enjoyed finding and identifying all the animals It is drawn and unfolds like a walk through an actual zoo Fun

  • I enjoyed this wordless book because students can see the creativity and it is visually pleasing I also like the interaction that it has set in place at the beginning and the end of the book On the other hand I think if it was for younger students that have never been to the zoo it might give them the wrong idea about the way a zoo works.

  • A book with no words.I put this book under Pre K and ages 5 7 because the kids could look at it without having to read, but if I was to use this book in a class room I would use it for the art The style is different, the animals are not proportional I would use it to show the different kinds of art in a fifth grade class when going through art.

  • I enjoyed the pictures in this book, however I would have liked it to have of a storyline Younger students would enjoy this book because of the pictures and the different animals that they can see throughout the peoples trip to the zoo.

  • This is a beautifully illustrated book with lots of animals and families to make stories about There is no text and little plot guidance so kids are free to make it up as they wish.

  • Alison Jay does an amazing job illustrating the wordless picture book, Welcome to the Zoo Her illustrations are so detailed and contain so much humor in each illustration One great thing about her illustrations is that you have some much to look for in each of them Some humorous things happening in the illustrations include a monkey stealing from a picnic basket and three zookeepers carrying one snake.Each illustration in this book is a full spread that contains one big white boarder The edges b [...]

  • Alison Jay uses oil paint with a crackle varnish to create the pottery like illustrations in Welcome to the Zoo The nearly wordless book seems to tell endless stories at once All pages are filled with pastel colors and are framed in white Animals come in and out of the frames, starting right at the zoo s entrance, possibly suggesting that this is no ordinary zoo Further exploration confirms this prediction, as animals in the zoo wander freely As the reader turns and pages, the animal pictures [...]

  • Date April 29th, 2015Author Illustrator Alison JayTitle Welcome to the Zoo Plot This very colorful wordless picture book showcases a family of four and their adventures at the local zoo Setting The Zoo More than likely in a City Characters Various characters are throughout the book The family of four is consistently present throughout the picture book, but they remain nameless Point Of View This book allows you to tell the story in any point of view you may choose.Theme Adventures, Family, Natur [...]

  • Welcome to the Zoo, while on the surface seems like a simple walk through an imaginary zoo, on closer inspection finds a challenging game of observation It took me quite a bit to figure out that there was an order to the exhibits and previews of the next page in the current page Also, that there were not simply just random faceless visitors to the zoo, but rather families that each had their own little adventure at the zoo The most obvious connection I see is this book does remind me of my numer [...]

  • A family of four enters the zoo and becomes part of whimsical scenery inwhich animals and humans frolic freely rather than being separated by cages Rather than being captive in a zoo, these animals appear to be lounging in a resort They are happy and non threatening as they play with each other and the people Jay s crackle finish oil paintings amuse the reader and tickle the imagination suggesting that, perhaps, the people are actually on display rather than the animals The illustrations in this [...]

  • Follow one family as they tour the zoo Look closely to see all the animals and their antics Start all over again to make sure you don t miss a minute of the day out at the zoo.What I thought A wordless picture book about a visit to the zoo I love it The illustrations are so detailed and appealing I had to go through several times to catch all the action This would be a good book for story time The kids can help me read it Welcome to the Zoo is also a great book to use one on one It takes time to [...]

  • This wordless picture book was in the zoo books bundle that we picked up at the library It s much too complex for my toddler, but I loved the illustrations and the seek and find aspect, and I hope I remember to check this one out again in a few years because I think a 4 year old would really get a kick out of it Personally, I loved that all of the zoo animals in this book were roaming freely and that the people were as much on display as the animals.

  • Some books don t need a word to explain its story Wonderful crackle artwork Children will love looking for all the pecularities in this book For one, none of the animals are in cages Some of the animals are up to mischief while others just look on I even spotted a squirrel He looked like he was gathering information The back pages have pictures of things for children to look for like a polar bear eating a popsickle Nice touch.

  • This book is all about the zoo The amazing thing about this book is that there are no words, just pictures The pictures are amazing I would use this book in my classroom to get the kids writing I would show them the pictures and have them write their own stories about what they think is going on in them.

  • Small stories and enchanting details abound in this wordless picture book, inviting curious eyes to explore a zoo brimming with luminous beauty, humor, and high jinks.SubjectsZoo animals Pictorial works Juvenile fiction.Stories without words Juvenile fiction.Zoos Juvenile fiction.

  • This book has its own special place at the toilet And not because it s dumped there, but because our daughters of 3 and 5 want to read look and explore it everytime they go to the loo It s a fantastic book for children to get lost in, made in a beautiful old fashioned style Definitely a must have.

  • At first I didn t like this book because it was all pictures and no words However, once I got to the end of the book it recommend a search and find to go back through out the book to do My youngest loves these types of books and loves animals so this book worked out well.

  • A day at the zoo can be very busy There are people that need to look Animals that need to be fed and there are children who need to be catered to The skewed proportions of the characters and animals body are very unfamiliar so in a sense they draw the reader toward them.

  • Somehow I both like and dislike the style of these illustrations I like the overall look of them kind of crackled, with great colors and I think the proportions of the animals and people are weird.

  • This book has no words and is essentially a tour of the zoo in a book The illustrations are great and it allows children to discuss what s on every page It reminded me of reading the map at Zoo Atlanta when I took my godson.

  • No words so not for storytime, but lovely pictures These were my favorites as a child so I d recommend for quiet children and those who like alone time They can look at all the lovely pictures and discover their favorites sections on their own.

  • Parent A wordless picture book with familiar animals and a fair amount of humor woven through the illustrations Jay s whimsical style works well with this simple story of a family visiting the zoo.Child There are animals What s not to like.

  • wordless book allows for endless questions interactions with child Viv says that book was so funny each page offers a different scene from the zoo with twists surprises fun details too tiny to share in group.

  • This book doesn t have words but Zainab always gets it out and points out all the animals She got this book when she visited my Colleague Ania and her newborn Patrick She was little over one year old then.

  • Wordless picture books are few and far between, outstanding wordless picture books even less frequent This book is beautiful with lots of detail on every page While not a great idea for a storytime, this book is ideal for parents who want to expand a child s imagination.

  • One of those children books where you have to make up the stories to go along with the pictures its lays fun making up your own stories.

  • A day in the life of a somewhat crazy zoo This wordless picture book would make a nice choice for developing Narrative Skills in Early Literacy Storytimes.
