Fiona Goes to School by Richard Cowdrey

Richard Cowdrey with Donald Wu
I Can Read! - Level 1
Juvenile Fiction

Join Fiona the hippo, the adorable internet sensation from the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens, as she and her friends start a zoo school to learn more about their fellow animals.

Fiona and a few of her animal friends attend zoo school for the very first time and find out just how fun it is to learn new things in the classroom. Young readers will enjoy learning more about Fiona and her friends in this Level One I Can Read about the little hippo that has captured hearts around the world with her inspiring story and plucky personality.

My Thoughts

Field trips to the zoo are almost a rite of passage for school kids. Fiona the hippo and her friends have been seeing these children and have decided that they want to go to school as well. So after the zoo closes for the day Mr. Elephant gathers the zoo animals for Zoo school.

Each of the students has an opinion on what should be taught and chaos ensues. In swoops wise Mr. Owl to restore order. The students quickly learn that to be a good student you must learn to listen, raise your hand (or paw), and be patient while waiting your turn.

This is another delightful addition to the line of Fiona books from Zonderkidz. This particular edition is a level one I Can Read! book that has short sentences, familiar words, and simple concepts that engage your emerging reader. 

I can't recommend this beginning reading book enough. We have loved all of the I Can Read! books from Zonderkidz. They have given the grandkids such a sense of accomplishment as they practice their new reading skills.


I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
