Read Fraidyzoo Online Free - It’s a great day to go to the zoo! As her family hustles to get out the door, Little T lags behind. She’s afraid to go back to the zoo; the only trouble is, she can’t remember why. As an ingenious solution to help her remember, her mom, dad, and sister construct homemade costumes and act out zoo animals—in alphabetical order, no less! The costumes and scenes grow increasingly elaborate and breathtakingly creative. An umbrella and bubble wrap magically transform into a jellyfish, bath towels and a can of soda become a parrot, and many, many more. At the end of the day, Little T has conquered her fear and no longer feels like a "fraidyzoo."
In this charming, witty picture book debut, Thyra Heder honors the bravery it takes to face your fears, and the loving people who help you do so.

This is the best children's book I have read in a very long time, and considering our "over 50 books a week" "the librarians know all our names" I think that is saying something.
The family in this book is the family I am trying to create. They changed their plan because the youngest got spooked,...

So fun! The illustrations bring this story up to another level entirely. Make sure you spend some time looking at them all - including the illustrations on the endpages. The clues are there for the sharp-eyed reader who pays attention to detail.

This book borders on overly TWEE. An adorable, creative family that helps their youngest member remember what she's afraid of at the zoo. Pretty sure the parents are set designers for The Lion King. Appealing to different age levels.

Smart and goofy and joyfully creative. A cut above the average alphabet book.

So much fun! I'm glad I read a review telling me it was an alphabet book, because I didn't even realize what with all the homemade costumes and twist ending. Great dramatic play tie-in.

My 4.5 year old and I loved it. Brilliantly illustrated. Very clever way of depicting the animals and my daughter had a good time guessing as well as learning about the animals that she did not know. She also thought the ending was absolutely hilarious and I loved how the end pictures were so wel...

I loved this the first time I read it, and when I got to the end I thought about it and went back through - there's nothing in this story that genders the main character, Little T! The descriptions do, but none of the family members do! :)
