It’s a cute, short and sweet book about a couple that has a baby but instead of going to be hospital, has the baby at the zoo. They then keep bringing home baby animals until finally they bring home the human baby. It’d be a great book for new big brothers or sisters. That poor woman giving birth at a zoo must of been a horrible birth experience though. Check it out!
From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 2. Kristen’s baby brother is born at a zoo instead of a hospital. Her overwrought parents repeatedly bring home the wrong infant?first an alligator, then a seal, then a monkey. Finally, brave Kristen takes off on her bike and locates the misplaced “people baby.” Thanks to the brave, smart big sister, the babies get sorted out, “And everything was okay…until Kristen’s mother had twins.” Storytime audiences will cackle as Kristen examines each baby, pointing out the animal parts (claws, flippers, tails, etc.) that convince her none of these creatures is her new brother. The silliness escalates in the ebullient watercolor illustrations. Kristen’s mother tosses hair curlers out the car window on the first trip to the zoo, leaving her hair to twist wildly for the rest of the story. The animal youngsters have a grand time visiting the humans’ house. The seal balances shampoo on its nose while it plays in the bathtub; the monkey swings from the chandelier. Refreshingly different from most “new baby” stories.?Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher’s School, Richmond, VACopyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.

I bought this for my 5 year old grandson. He absolutely loved it! He giggled throughout the entire book and loved the illustrations as well. -Read Reviews-
Great book! I have a 4 year old daughter and two months ago we welcomed her baby brother. Reading this book was a great way to talk about how she was feeling and have fun.
