Jun 11, Habrewer rated it really liked it. It is full of colorful words rhyming words that almost flow like a song. It would make sense because according to the introduction it was a song from the Broadway play Do Re Mi in It is full of bright colorful pictures that children will love. There are all types of animals that can be found in the zoo and they are all on top of each other.
The animals are crying out because they are stepping on each other and need space of their own. This was a fun book because there are several games you could play with your youngster such as naming the animals or finding the animals, etc. Lilly enjoyed this book and we give it 4 stars.

This funny book about an overcrowded zoo contains words Non Conformist - At The Zoo - Nouveau Popular (CD) are lyrics from the Broadway Show, Do Re Mi.
The zoo is so crowded that the animals are stepping on one another. All of the animals demand to be let out of the zoo. So when the zookeeper arrives at the door, he is stampeded by all of the animals in their rush to escape. The book combines humor and rhythm into one very appealing read.

The illustrations show the Non Conformist - At The Zoo - Nouveau Popular (CD) results of what happens when there isn't quite enough space for all of the animals - a bear steps on a kangaroo's pouch, a moose steps on a pelican's beak, a pig steps on a porcupine.
Foster's illustrations are a lot of fun, the expressions he gives the animals convey exactly what they are feeling. This book would be great for a zoo themed story time. Sep 18, Adam Schuch rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction. The book was a little too short as far as words go. But the book did a great job of using many devices, Non Conformist - At The Zoo - Nouveau Popular (CD). The book has repetition, rhyming, onamonapias, and a couple pages that flip open.
The book has very interesting print function as the animals hurt each other while shouting. It also contains helpful word identification by coloring the names of the animals to match their illustrations. This book would be great to complement a science unit on living animals.

Fascinating backstory! The text of this book is actually lyrics from a Broadway musical called Do Re Mi, and it was inspired by the overcrowding of the Central Park Zoo—back before zoo designs were reformed to recreate the animals' habitats and give them more space.
The illustrations are so bright and fun, too. Feb 02, Christy Head rated it really liked it. Expressive and fun. Complicated illustrations that lend themselves to younger kids finding different animals. No real story, which was disconcerting. The animals spend the whole story talking about how the zoo is too crowded, but nothing is really done throughout the story or at the end.
Good for Prekst grade. Jul 31, Magila rated it really liked it Shelves: picture-bookschildren. Adapted from the lyrics of a broadway show-tune, it has a fun cadence and a bunch of animal sounds and noises. With a few foldout pages, it's sure to be an Nagano favorite of the crowd. Non Conformist - At The Zoo - Nouveau Popular (CD) 12, Danielle Mootz rated it it was amazing Shelves: kids-books. Thus book is definitely for a younger crowd with a short attention span. So, a perfect read for my 3 year old son.
I made it into an obnoxious song as the animals all complained and chanted how they wanted out. View 1 comment. Jan 10, Mary rated it liked it Shelves: picture-bookstorytimezoo.
A cute book full of a wide variety of talking animals. The text comes from a musical, "Do Re Mi" originally on Broadway in While the text is funny, it would help to have the audible song handy to get the rhythm. Some youtube videos are available. Sep 08, Jen rated it really liked it Shelves: pb. Really great drawings. Some of the rhyme was forced. I appreciate that it references a real historical change in how zoos are organized and operated.

Even with all the visual exhibition improvements, however, the emphasis of public zoos remained on exhibition of wildlife. The next developmental phase, which began in the late s, focused on conservation of wildlife and natural habitats.
Discussions began in earnest when a voluntary ban on importing young orangutans was instituted in U. Zoo directors sought to reduce the capture of orangutans in Indonesia, which was typically accomplished through the killing of the mothers in order to secure their babies.
Federal legislation in the s Non Conformist - At The Zoo - Nouveau Popular (CD) further controls over the health and captive breeding of many species.
In the late s new emphasis began to be placed on the educational component of zoos. The Philadelphia and New York zoos have had small science components for over 50 years, but science and research staffs in other zoos have become commonplace only in the past decade or so. Today there are over 1, organized zoos and as many as 10, animal collections in the world.
Broadly, the current objectives of the zoo community can be summarized as follows: increasing awareness of the vital need for conservation; expanding scientific knowledge to benefit conservation programs worldwide; supporting the preservation of endangered species in the wild as well as in zoos through managed, cooperative breeding programs; and supporting further field work and other research projects in conservation of natural habitats, biotypes, and ecosystems. In short, zoos are using their unique position to heighten public and political awareness of the interdependence of all life elements on this planet.
Scientists and administrators from institutions around the world are increasing their cooperative efforts as well. The American Association of Zoological Parks and Aquariums expanded its conservation activities with the development in of a Species Survival Plan SSP program to manage cooperative captive breeding programs for 72 different species at zoos. Some species are to be included in the SSP program by the year Current aids to national and international breeding programs now include the International Species Inventory Non Conformist - At The Zoo - Nouveau Popular (CD), the International Zoo Yearbook species studbook, and various computer programs designed to manage captive populations and create statistical models to predict population viability.
Providing adequate and appropriate space for captive specimens is also a concern. Cooperative population management, however, entails real risks of degeneration of the wild population that can take place over hundreds of years because of the increasing domesticity of the wild population and the loss of genetic variability.
New tools for captive reproduction, such as artificial inseminationcryopreservation, and biotechnology, are being developed. Many species of birds, including cranes and the California condor, are being successfully inseminated artificially. The collection and freezing of both ova and sperm of all animals is now regularly taking place, and studies continue on appropriate materials for enhancing storage and extenders for use of these gametes.
The Cincinnati Ohio Zoo is a pioneer in cryopreservation and has already established a "frozen zoo. Professional educators are prominent members of the staff at most collections in the U.
Education programs serve visitors on-site and provide access to zoos through community outreach efforts. Teacher workshops are regularly held to incorporate zoo education programs into regular school curricula, and zoo experts work closely with the science faculties of most local school systems. Trained volunteers also work with zoo staff to expand the quality and quantity of education programs. Volunteers provide the manpower essential for zoos to respond to the needs of visitors numbering up to seven million a year in some cases.
Field trips to the zoo have always been a popular part of the school year, but now zoo visits are often part of the biology curriculum, directly tied to classroom studies. Many zoos maintain specialized libraries in the biological sciences and sponsor programs of lectures and audiovisual presentations by zoo staff that help promote conservation awareness in the community.
Finally, in the area of community outreach, "traveling zoos" fill a unique niche. The first such program was originated in Chicago in the s by zoo director and TV naturalist Marlin Perkins and took animals--and the conservation message--to hospitals, senior centres, nursing homes, schools, and and a variety of community recreation programs.
