One Night in the Zoo Band 11/Lime

Written by Judith Kerr

Part of the Collins Big Cat Series

One Night in the Zoo Band 11/Lime Synopsis

A wonderful rhyming book from Judith Kerr, the best-selling author of the Mog series and The Tiger Who Came to Tea One moonlit, magical night in the zoo An elephant jumped in the air and flew. But nobody knew. It's only when all the visitors have gone home that the real fun starts in the Zoo! Enjoy counting the wide variety of animals in a fun and wonderfully imaginative way as you follow them through the night, and find out what mischief they get into. A summary on pages 30 and 31, showing each animal in the book in number order, supports children in recapping what they have read. Lime/Band 11 books have longer sentence structures and a greater use of literary language. Ideas for reading at the back of the book provide practical support and stimulating activities

One Night in the Zoo Band 11/Lime Press Reviews

Bright, cheerful rhymes and soft, witty illustrations tell the story of a most curious night at the zoo while presenting the numbers one to ten in this smart and silly counting book. . . . The imaginative ideas will have children giggling, and the simplicity of the rhymes will encourage readers to come up with their own. . . . Children will enjoy spotting the mischievous animals that do not return to their proper places and will be deeply satisfied to hear that although the animals seem tired, nobody knew what they were up to during the night ( . . . Except you! ). A recap of all the animals counted is included at the end. A fun-filled selection, great for home and for the classroom. --Kirkus Reviews
