This delightful adaptation of the children's classic, "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," takes readers to the zoo, as preparations are under way for "Zoo Day." But things aren't going according to plan . . . The llamas won't quit spitting, the giraffes are drooling, and the zebras aren't happy at all with their stripes. Meanwhile, the zoo keepers are scurrying this way and that, cleaning up poop, ringing mealtime bells, and trying to get the animals bathed. But are the naughty elephants listening? Not a chance. And if that weren't bad enough, a poor alligator mistakes a bee for a fly, and instead of eating supper, he gets stung in the eye! Does it all work out? Will the zoo keepers end up spending the night at the zoo? Will "Zoo Day" go off without a hitch, or will the dancing monkeys take over? Sylvan Dell is a publisher of illustrated children's books, but we are also a serious education company committed to making a difference in literacy, language, and cross-curricular learning. We believe that you use fiction picturebooks as a tee-up to get children reading and peak their interest in a subject, then you burrow in and teach the non-fiction components that we make freely available. We offer teachers and parents a Science and Math Through Literature Program that is fun, cross-curricular, and high tech. It seamlessly integrates reading, science, math, geography, character skills, and language learning.
