“Boldly created pages are easy to carry back within the space during the story time and the stunning juxtapositions of vivid color schemes will cause eyes feel tingling. School Library Journal
“A masterpiece in graphic design.” (American Library Association Caldecott Committee).
” Color Zoo concentrates on shapes, concepts as well as animals and colors as well as the possibility of seeing the world from a new and more imaginative perspective. (Children’s Books & Their Creators)
“Impressively enjoyable”: The pages are perfectly designed, die-cut and bound. They line up precisely to reveal nine clearly recognizable abstractly-formed animal heads. Immensely enjoyable.”
There are many things you can do in your zoo. Animals are all about heads, ears, eyes, and beaks. You know animals as well as I do; learn new ones for your zoo.

Lois Ehlert was the Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator and author of Color Zoo as well as Color Farm, and Cirque. Many other books were illustrated by her, including the beloved chicka Chicka Boom.
Lois Ehlert continues to push the boundaries of traditional bookmaking with her highly original books. Young children are drawn to her vivid colors, unusual book shapes, intricate page cut, and photographed collages.
Ehlert made art using scissors, paper and glue as well as thread, wire, textiles, and things she found on the street. She was an artist, author, and a graphic designer. This allowed her to create the tone for her books through both the design and carefully selected rhythmic words.
The Artistic Lifestyle
Lois Ehlert was raised in a home where “people were always creating things.” Her mother, a skilled seamstress, taught her how to sew and gave her bright scraps of fabric. Her father, a woodworker, gave her scraps from his basement workshop. Lois developed a passion for bright colors, and a talent for creating interesting textures with non-traditional art supplies. Her headquarters was an old card table.
