Crazy Zoo by Jane Finch is a delightful story about a crazy zoo with some crazy inhabitants. The story opens with another day at the world's craziest zoo. All the animals and birds are enjoying the cool air at Zoo Park before it becomes hot and humid. Bridget the Brolga Bird thinks it is her responsibility to handle all the problems happening in the zoo. The animals are not allowed to speak to their keepers. Instead, they speak to Bridget and she makes sure that their problems are resolved. Bridget, with all her clever ideas, tries to keep the animals living there contented and happy.
Crazy Zoo is a wonderful book in many ways. It introduces kids to many new animals. The introduction on each animal is useful to learn a bit more about each one. Apart from that, kids are given a peek into daily zoo life. The story line connects all the zoo animals and birds together. The illustrations help kids comprehend the story better. Bridget's characterization is quite appealing. She is allowed to wander around in the park, listening to the chatter of parrots, and passing gossip to those who are curious to know more. Parents and grandparents can use this book as a good bedtime story book. It makes a lovely story for read aloud sessions in classrooms and libraries. Children are taught about a lot of new things in a very interactive and playful way.
