Animal Strike at the Zoo. It's True! by Karma Wilson. There's an animal strike at the zoo! What's a zookeeper to do when the lions and tigers and bears refuse to roar and prowl and growl? When little Sue, who has been waiting all year for this trip to the zoo, enters the gate, will the animals decide to give their strike a break?
ANIMAL STRIKE AT THE ZOO. IT'S TRUE! by Karma Wilson ... A rhyming charmer about zoo animals going on strike. It all starts when the elephants complain, We're paid only peanuts! All of the other animals follow suit. Then all is chaos as the zookeeper tries to pacify the animals, and there appears to be no end in sight until a first-time visitor bursts into tears. It is only then, in a loud hush, that it becomes apparent to the animals just how important their job really is.

Where’s Walrus? by: Stephen Savage - Wordless books provide a wonderful opportunity for children to tell the story and learn that their interpretation counts. This one opens with a wink from the main character, a walrus who is about to cause some mischief. While a zookeeper dozes, Walrus escapes from his tiny pool in the zoo and makes his way out into the city. It’s not long before the alarmed zookeeper takes up the chase!
