The Opposite Zoo by Il Sung Na- ADVISABLE

Na, Il Sung The Opposite Zoo. Random House Children's Books, 2016. $19.99. PICTURE BOOK. With stunning illustrations and few words, Il Sung Na presents a magical walk through The Opposite Zoo to explore not only different animals, but also a fun way to introduce opposites to little ones. The tall giraffe vs the short pig, the hairy lion vs the bald hippo.  The illustrations bring the zoo animals to life. The story begins at the end of a zoo day when the gates are closed to the public and a monkey escapes in order to explore the other animals.  The story ends as the sun comes up, the monkey is back in her cage and a day of exploration and fun begins for spectators to view the zoo animals.  This great book could be used in a classroom teaching animals or opposites. ADVISABLE.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3). Reviewer: SL.
