Life-Size Zoo by Teruyuki Komiya takes you "up close" to your favorite animals through actual size images. Travel through the picture book zoo to see just how large a tiger’s tooth is, or how far a giraffe’s tongue can reach. Even a trip to a real life zoo won’t get you this close! You’ll also get to meet animals like Yamato a German gorilla, and Kometaro an aardvark, to name a few. This book is cleverly illustrated with photographs, and features a side bar full of facts about each animal. If you happen to be stopping by the Lexington Park or Charlotte Hall library, take a look at our “Actual Size” height chart Learning Spot, made by Lindsay Alvey, the library's summer intern last year! This Learning Spot is full of interesting facts about animals that may be your actual size, so come on by the library and learn an animal fact or two. See this book listed in our catalog
