Me and Moo and Roar too by P. Crumble

Scholastic, 2016. ISBN 9781760156930
(Age: 3+) Highly recommended. Me and Moo and Roar too is a beautifully illustrated picture book. The main characters are Me, a young boy, and Moo, a cow. They are the best of friends and have had a book written about the two of them already. In this new story, they have a new friend, Roar. Roar is a lion who loves to wear mum's sun hat! He also loves her hairbrush. Unfortunately, Roar's loud snoring meant he had to move to the zoo. Imagine everyone's surprise when other friends had to take their animal pals back to the zoo. Thankfully, Roar likes it at the zoo.
Me and Moo and Roar too is a lovely story of friendship and make believe. It would make a great read aloud book for younger classes, especially as the Science curriculum has them looking at how to take care of pets. Children could listen to the story and create their own zoo, draw their own pet or a pet they would like. Older students could use the book as a model and write stories for younger students to read, creating positive peer relationships. Younger classes could also help their teacher create a new Me and Moo story by adding animals they are looking at in Science. Highly recommended for readers aged 3+.
