Kids love to go to the zoo so why not grab this delightful preschool puzzle to start up a fun conversation about the animals? Constructing a puzzle together with your child is a wonderful language activity, as you take turns describing the picture you are putting together. “The hanging monkey swings down to offer the tall giraffes his banana!” or “The crocodile is sunning himself on a rock in the pond.” Kids loved discovering the added sensory experience as they found the fuzzy striped leg of the mama tiger, curly fur of the koala, or shiny patterned back of the lizard. Janod’s beautiful illustrations entertain kids as they can count, name, describe and compare textures for a rich language experience!
