If you're looking for good books for your child to enjoy during National Zookeepers Week then you'll want to check out these two books from Peter Pauper Press. Both books will give your child a hands on element of animal discovery and they can put their imagination to work scratching their own artwork!
The Zoo is Closed Today written by Evelyn Beilenson, illustrated by Anne Kennedy:
At The Zoo Scratch & Sketch: An Art Activity Book for Animal Lovers by Lee Nemmers, illustrated by Martha Day Zschock
This fun and easy Trace-Along art activity book allows budding artists (5 and up) to use the wooden drawing tool enclosed to trace the white outlines of favorite animals on black-coated scratch art pages. Kids will be delighted to see lions, tigers, bears, seals, and more come alive in swirls of colors and glittery foil! They can also use the sketch pages in the back to draw their own pictures of favorite animals.
At the Zoo Scratch & Sketch Art Activity Book includes a wooden stylus for drawing on black-coated paper to reveal glittering, gleaming colors beneath, wire-o-bound hardcover binding and 20 scratch off, 20 illustrated and 20 sketch pages.
