Hoffman, Beth Greiner Animal Gym illustrated by Tibor Gergely 24 pgs. Golden Books, 2009. PICTURE BOOK. $3.99. Although I am not the biggest fan of the Little Golden books, I have to love them because of how classic they are. This particular book relates how crazy it would be if elephants and tigers and monkeys came to gym class with us! It might be harder for younger kids to relate to this because they won't have any concept of what gym class is, but they might be familiar with the activities the animals do. The text is short and the illustrations are more realistic than what kids might be familiar with so it may help with animal recognition. Pre-K- OPTIONAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
