The Complete Zoo Adventure, a field trip in a book
The Complete Zoo Adventure is an amazing book with so many different uses/applications I hardly know where to begin! First off, let me begin by saying “Thank You!” to the authors, Mary and Gary Parker and to the publishers, Master Books, for giving us a book about animals and their lives which does not revolve around evolution! The subtitle of this book calls it “A Field Trip in a Book”. It is that and so much more!
This book is a nicely spiral bound hard-cover book, which contains activities for leading up to, during, and after a trip to a zoo. It is a great book for families, homeschoolers, Christian school teachers, etc. There are facts and illustrations about so many different animals one may encounter at a zoo—eyecatching and just begging to be read and learned! There are devotions dealing with animals and what will be seen/learned at a zoo. There are great activities and resources for students and teachers! Shall I go on? At the back of the book, attached to the inner cover, is a folder containing field fact cards, biome cards, field journals, name tags. . .The creators of this book were very thorough, and this book will be a definite addition to our homeschool curriculum! We look forward to using it next year to supplement our animal segment.
I’m sure you’ve guessed already, but I would definitely recommend this book. I think I may even use it as a gift for some of my nieces and nephews! They’ll love it! (and so will their parents!)
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review; I was not required to write a positive review.
