Roly Poly Monster is a friendly young monster who likes to bounce and roll around wherever he goes. Today his parents have a surprise for him. They are taking him to the zoo! Come roll and bounce with Roly Poly as he tours the zoo with its fun animals and other exhibits. Be sure to follow the dotted line trail so you too can know where Roly Poly is going to bounce and roll next!

Roly Poly Monster Goes To The Zoo by Charity Tober is a delightful children's book picture introducing young readers to the concept of direction, and invites them to test their interaction and identification skills. Most children love going to the zoo to look at the animals and other attractions they have to offer. The author offers children the chance to share, enjoy, and learn with the main character as he explores the zoo animals and events.

The book is very bright and colorful with beautifully illustrated pictures and maps for young readers to follow along, interact with, and enjoy the adventure Roly Poly Monster is having. Each time the main character, Roly Poly, starts something new at the zoo, readers can follow along by viewing a dotted line indicating the position in which they and Roly will be going next. They can also enjoy a beautifully drawn and easily read map of the entire zoo. The text is bouncy, light, and fun - just like the character's personality. The book offers a great chance for parents, teachers, or other adults to have an exciting and interactive learning experience with young readers.
