Ziggy’s Zoo is a rhyming picture book text which describes a young girl playing in her garden, creating a zoo consisting of live mini beasts, a toy, the family dog, and finally, her parents. The story focuses on play, both natural and imaginary. She wants to find ten exhibits, so counting is also a feature of the book as is identification of hidden creatures embedded in the illustrations.
