Here's a case where the title of a book perfectly and succinctly describes the story contained inside the book. Written by Mary Jean Hendrick and illustrated by Jane Dyer, If Anything Ever Goes Wrong at the Zoo (1993) beautifully blurs the line between the real and the imaginative. You'll see that magic reflected on your children's faces and in their twinkling eyes as you read this inventive story. My youngest didn't ask a single question through the reading of this book. And that's saying an awful lot!
- This is a wonderful title to read on a rainy day.
- Be sure to read this other delightful story about a trip to the zoo.
