“Zoom, Zoom, Zoom” by Karen Katz – Buddy’s Book Review

Welcome to Buddy’s Book Review! A review of our favorite children’s books here at The Nest Schools. We thoroughly believe in the power of literature, and we are excited to introduce wonderful new children’s books to our families in hopes that they will expand their own home libraries as we expand our own!   

How will we review and rate each book? Each book will be rated in terms of its likeness to our core values: KINDNESSWELLNESSINNOVATION, and FUN. Five beautiful feathers will be given for the core value we think each book best represents. Happy Reading! 

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom by Karen Katz is a playful and interactive story that brings readers on a hide-and-seek adventure through land, sky, and sea. As readers search high and low for “baby”, they meet many new characters along the way!

 

The story’s simple and playful language is full of rhythm and rhyme, making it easy for young readers to follow along and participate in storytelling! Katz’s use of onomatopoeia words sparks imagination and creativity in even the youngest of readers, encouraging them to play with words and sounds to tell their own stories!  

Katz’s signature illustrations depict an array of environments and people, highlighting the beauty of diversity and inclusion in a simple yet powerful way. Each page, full of bright and cheerful colors, instantly captures the attention of its readers.  

Perhaps the most FUN part of this story is its interactive lift-a-flap structure, inviting children to practice motor skills as they eagerly uncover who is in each vehicle in search of “baby”. 

While a simple story, “Zoom, Zoom, Zoom” offers an opportunity to engage children in an exciting whole-body read-aloud experience. Building new language skills, learning the essence of storytelling, celebrating diversity amongst characters and environments, and developing a love of reading.  

 

 Buddy is proud to give this story five feathers for FUN.
