Always Lots of Heinies at the Zoo by Ayun Halliday

Guess what you can find at the zoo? Animal heinies! This rhyming picture book takes you on a journey through the zoo, pointing out all of the animals that just let their rear-end hang out.

Heinies are a great topic for humour, especially for young children. This book isn't graphic, really, it just shows a lot of animal backsides. I think that this book could be used as a great title for helping to talk to children about why we wear clothes. Dan Santat's illustrations are a standout, and I love the attention paid to the details of the book (especially the front and back inside covers).

Find it at IndieBound.

  1. Holy moly. I have to get this for my 3 1/2 year old. Bottoms and farts and poops are like the best things ever to a 3 1/2 year old boy.
