5.0 out of 5 stars A book for the thinking child, 23 Mar 2008
By 
Jessica Sharp (Reading, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Zoo (Red Fox Picture Books) (Paperback)
I think it is such a shame that some reviewers so not see the value and beauty of Anthony Browne's Zoo. This story is meant to provide a platform for thinking, debate and inference and is a book I use every year with my pupils aged between 5 and 7. The passion and independence of mind that this book generates in the classroom is wonderful, many of my young pupils are able to understand Browne's opinions about Zoos and to understand that it is just that - an opinion. Encourage your children to debate and question these views rather than assuming they will accept them blindly. You may be suprised at their reaction to this book, every pupil I have ever taught reacts slightly differently to this text.
Browne's illustrations are a joy and horror in equal measures and his words say as much about some aspects of family life as they do about zoos, like the reality or not. I highly reccommend this text for anyone who wants to encourage open mindedness and inference in their children or pupils.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book, ideal in a classroom setting., 1 Nov 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Zoo (Red Fox Picture Books) (Paperback)
Anthony Browne is an excellent author, who has again outdone himself with this book.
Zoo is a tale of a families trip to the zoo. For whatever reason, the entire family (as in most Browne books) are depicted as Gorillas. There are several subtle scenes in the book which lend themselves to analysis by children of all ages. Browne is an extremely intelligent author who has managed time and time again to write books that communicate ideas on many many levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whe are the animals?, 4 Mar 2014
This review is from: Zoo (Red Fox Picture Books) (Paperback)
I had this book when my son was a child and we enjoyed reading this together and laughing that unfortunately, his dad was like the dad in the book. He mentioned this book to me yesterday saying that he still thought about it and it actually scared him a bit. He is 18 now so I'm going to purchase it as a gift for him and see what he really thinks now he is an adult and not a wee boy!!!
