Synopsis

Fraidyzoo by Thyra Heder

It's a great day to go to the zoo! As her family hustles and bustles to get out the door, Little T lags behind. She's afraid to go back to the zoo; the only trouble is--she can't remember why. Undaunted, her mum, dad and sister jump in to help Little T remember what she's afraid of by acting out the zoo animals. Does it start with an A? her father asks, making alligator jaws with his arms. The game continues through the day and the alphabet, as the costumes and scenes grow increasingly elaborate. By nightfall, the creative family has gone through the alphabet and Little T is not afraid of any of the animals! So, in the morning, the family is off again to the zoo, and in a punchy, witty conclusion, we learn that the heavily made-up ticket lady, and not the zoo animals, was the cause of Little T's fear. In triumph, Little T no longer feels like a fraidyzoo.
