Victor Teran’s Our Trip to the Zoo is a colorful children’s book about a young boy named Landon and his father who visit a zoo and learn to count to ten at the same time by the number of different animals that they see as they make their way through the zoo. Throughout the book, the numbers themselves are even in the shapes of the animals that they encounter on their journey. The narration style is a rhyming scheme which may also help to provide an educational tool for younger children as a way of remembering how to count from one to ten.
Our Trip to the Zoo by Victor Teran really caught my attention, not only with the storyline itself but with the illustrations as they subtly reminded me of comic strip cartoon characters that I might find in the funny pages of a newspaper. There was a nostalgic essence to them that I completely appreciated. If you are a fan of bright and colorful illustrations and rhyming storylines that teach as they go, you will want to share this book with the little ones in your own life, or perhaps as a gift to others with children. I feel it would also be a good resource to have on hand before a trip to a real zoo, as a way to show kids what they will be seeing so that they aren’t overly fearful, and will know what to expect. Victor Teran's Our Trip to the Zoo will surely not disappoint, will encourage young readers and make learning how to count an enjoyable experience for all.
