pennydale zoo Great Talent Contest Children's BookChildren’s Book Review by Greta Jenkins

The Pennydale Zoo Great Talent Contest is written by Ian Sadler and illustrated by Adrienne Brown.

A whimsical tale about Juniper the mouse, the smallest resident of Pennydale Zoo,  who learns that practice pays. In the Pennydale Zoo Talent Contest, Juniper has to compete against a giraffe, camels, and an elephant while being judged by an orangutan, lizard and lion.

Juniper works hard day and night practicing to get ready for the talent contest.  During the contest, all of Juniper’s competitors have difficulties during their acts. When it is Juniper’s turn, his routine is flawless, practice pays off for him.

The book kept our pre-school class of 3 and 4 year olds engaged, and when read by third graders it inspired a neighborhood talent contest. The book includes ideas for parents and teachers to encourage individual and classes activities including animal art, zoo animal imagination play and holding your own talent show.

A great summer read for kids,  it will inspire fun summer activities for neighborhood play groups and day camps.
