Animal Parade Reviews
This is a book that keeps on giving, with animals that is! Such a fantastic opportunity to engage children into learning different animals, with some they probably have never seen before. While showing animals, it also goes through the alphabet. Two pages at the end give a chance to review the animals. I would love to let kids hear what different sounds animals make and mimic them. Open a discussion on if they have ever seen certain animal in the book and where if they have.
Grade/Interest Level: Primary (K-2)Reading Level: Lexile level, none (picture book)Genre: Picture BookMain Characters: animals in the bookSetting: a paradePOV: N/ASummary:This story is meant to teach young students about the alphabet and also learn the names of animals that they may not be very familiar with. The book begins with the letter “A” and takes us all the way through letter “Z” with at least four to five specific animals whose species begins with that particular letter. On each page there are colorful illustrations of the animals as they march along in the parade in a straight line. The illustrations of the animals’ faces show how much fun they are having in the parade and allow the children to imagine what a parade may be like for them. At the end of the book there are two pages filled with all the animals mentioned in the story that allow for a quick review of each animal without having to flip back through the book. As the animals are marching in the parade there are also stragglers and animals that have walked to fast and are now out of place with their particular species. This allows teachers to ask which animals are by the wring letter and which letter do they actually belong by. This creates another form of review.I would and have used this book in preschool classrooms to help teach students about various animals before going on a zoo field trip. In the kindergarten classroom I am currently teaching in I used this book to assist and deepen understand of first sounds they hear in a word. We used the format of me saying the animal, students repeating it, and then together saying the sound we heard first during the read-aloud of this book.
Going through the pages of this book, the reader is introduced to a vast array of animals. This is part alphabet book, part animal dictionary. Each page has a line of animals whose names begin with that letter. The names are listed along the bottom of the page. There is no other text than just the list of animal names, but PreK-1st graders still love it because of the animals. It is a good way to reinforce letters, letter sounds, and teach animals.
