REVIEW: Steve Goes to Carnival

Steve Goes to Carnival

by Joshua Button (Author, Illustrator), Robyn Wells (Author)


In Rio, a zoo keeper and a gorilla share a love for jazz, leading to the gorilla’s escape through the city during Carnival. This is a great book for any grade doing a unit on Rio, as each page captures the sights and sounds of Carnival as if one were local. The illustrations are beautifully textured and vibrant and do a great job mimicking sound, movement, and smell. Excellent read! Published by Candlewick, ages 5-8.
