She and her colleagues used The Tangram Zoo to provide creative hands-on learning and fun in the classroom. The book also presents some interesting historical facts about tangrams and encourages students to enjoy researching animals and writing their own rhyming riddles as they create their own creatures to add to the zoo. The book also includes ideas for home/school projects. There are 18 tangram animals with rhyming riddles to solve. Solutions are at the back of the book, but children are encouraged to try to solve them on their own before checking the solutions. This unique activity book provides hours of creative learning for everyone.
"This book will keep anyone busy for hours. If you like puzzles and riddles this book will be great for you. Tangrams can be found in almost any toy store or department store; but, if you don't want to buy them this book can show you how to make your own." -David M. Howard "Uncle-Dave" (Waynesburg, PA)
"The idea is very neat, as all 18 tangrams are animals. Looking at the picture and reading the riddle, you try to guess the animal...I wish there had been more pages. -Ocean Breeze
