Wild About Books
Librarian Molly McGrew takes her book mobile to the zoo where she introduces the animals to reading. Molly finds joke books for the hyenas, books in Chinese for the pandas, and waterproof books for the otters. Before long, the animals become voracious readers and they soon begin writing as well. Insects write haikus, the cheetah writes a novel and the hippo a memoir. This video is an adaptation of the book written by Judy Sierra and illustrated by Marc Brown.
