Read Aloud at its finest!

Richard Cowdry’s Fiona books are already a staple in school libraries. Still, Fiona, love at the Zoo is my favourite! With Cowdrys up-close, vibrant images and lyrical rhyme, this picture book will also appeal to preschool children. So how do animals show love and affection for one another? Through hugs and sharing, cuddles, and rubbing noses, there is nothing to disappoint in this book. Since Fiona is a real hippo from the Cincinnati Zoo, many conversations on wild animals and their care will likely ensue.
