Share this classic die-cut concept book at home or at circle time. Lois Ehlert, of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom fame, was a picture book genius.

"Boldly designed pages easily carry to the rear of the room during story hours, and brilliant juxtapositions of vibrant primary colors will make children's eyes tingle." (School Library Journal)

"A masterpiece of graphic design." (American Library Association Caldecott Committee)

"Color Zoo is about concepts—shapes, colors, and animals—but also about looking at the world in a new and creative way." (Children's Books and Their Creators)

"Employs ingeniously designed, perfectly die-cut and bound pages which line up exactly to unfold nine distinctly recognizable abstractly formed animal heads. Immensely enjoyable." (CCBC Choices)

Shapes and colors in your zoo, lots of things that you can do. Heads and ears, beaks and snouts, that's what animals are all about. I know animals and you do too; make some new ones for your zoo.

Lois Ehlert was the Caldecott Honor-winning author and illustrator of Color Zoo, as well as Color Farm and Circus. She also illustrated many other books, including the beloved Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.
