The bustle of the crowd is waning and the zoo is quieting for the night. The polar bear picks up the ball and dribbles onto the court; the nightly game begins. A frog jumps up to play one-on-one and then a penguin waddles in to join the team. Count along as the game grows with the addition of each new animal and the field of players builds to ten. Three zebras serve as referees and keep the clock, because this game must be over before the zookeeper makes her rounds.
Told in rhythmic form, Midnight Madness at the Zoo is a charming tale of zoo animals who play a game of basketball after the zoo closes. The game starts out with one animal and ends up with ten. While reading, children can count out the animals on the court. Some of the zoo animals featured include monkeys, penguins, seals, and lions.
The "For Creative Minds" section at the back of the book fosters information on basketball vocabulary. For instance, kids can learn that a layup is to shoot the ball into the basket from close up. There's also topics about endangered zoo animals and building a basketball hoop. There's also two match exercises.
Midnight Madness at the Zoo is a Spring 2016 book release by Arbordale Publishing.
