Noah's Petting Zoo: Review

Noah's Petting Zoo

Noah's Petting Zoo
Author: Idan Hadari
Publisher: Idan Hadari
Pages: 30
This is a wonderful children's bedtime story about an old house (Noah) in a new neighborhood, which is about to be demolished to make way for a new building.

Andrew, a young child, who loves to play with his friends nearby, is doing everything he can to save the old house. With a great deal of courage and motivation, he turns Noah into a petting zoo, and by doing so, he helps his friend Noah to be saved.

The story demonstrates to children how to crusade for what they believe in; to be more environmental friendly; to help one's fellow man; what true friendship is; and of course, to like and to play with all of the adorable animals in the story.

Your kids will enjoy amazing paintings of a house full of all sorts of animals (dogs, cats, monkeys, turtles, giraffes, cows, horses and many more) and a very cute yellow tractor.

Your kids will learn how to be more:

• Social and friendly
• Self-motivated
• Environmental friendly

The story is with simple rhyming text for children ages 3-8.
My Thoughts:
Andrew is very sad to see that the city is going to demolish Noah. He is determined to find a way to save the old house. He comes up with the idea of turning Noah into a  petting zoo so everybody will see that there is a use for the old house. This book is another rhyming story which I absolutely love because rhyming stories, I feel, are always so much fun to read out loud to your kids. One great thing this story teaches kids is that not everything that is old should be torn down or thrown away and not everything has to be shiny and new to be of use. The greatest thing I think it teaches our children though is that they CAN make a difference in the world! They should always fight for what they believe in rather than just stand by and let things happen or wait for somebody else to take charge. These children are the future!
