Fraidyzoo by Thrya Heder

Little T is afraid to go to the zoo, but can't remember why.  Her family is very understanding and tries to help her out by dressing up as animals!

Abrams Books sent me a copy of this picture book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

This story teaches you the alphabet but does it in a way that is totally unique.  They pick an animal for every letter of the alphabet and then they dress up and act it out.  She keeps saying no, that's not it.  The story is amusing and fun and I can see little ones wanting to dress up, too.

In this story, mom and dad are a good sport and have fun acting out the animals along the other siblings in the family.  When Little T decides she's brave enough to go, they head on down to the zoo.  The laugh-out-loud thing is that the ticket lady scares her sister!  Little T is still there and her sister is out the gate heading down the road!  Oh my goodness...

Here's an easy way to teach your child the alphabet.  Maybe you could both work on coming up with other animals whose names begin with "B" and other letters of the alphabet.  I'll let you skip the "X", OK?

Happy reading.
