Let’s Talk! Going to the Zoo

by Lisa Jacovsky


GENRE:   Picture Book / Children’s Book



Harper and Emma are two best friends who first met at the pool in the summer. Emma has Autism which affected her speech. Harper became determined to find a way to talk with her new friend and learned about Autism. Neither girl would allow anything stand in their way of becoming best friends.

Now, Harper and Emma are excited to go to the zoo for the first time. This is a new adventure for them which they are going on with their daddies. Once they get there, they are amazed at the different animals they see. Then, while admiring them, a group of children come by and begin to laugh and point at Emma. She had been flapping her hands and making noises in excitement watching these new animals. Harper is confused by this but does not allow the bullying to continue. She educates the bullies about Autism and who Emma is. The bullies eventually walk away however, one little boy stayed behind. He apologized for his actions and wants to be friends. The three new friends finish their day at the zoo exploring and meeting new animals making memories with their daddies.

Describe Your Book Cover and How It Came About

My book cover is of the two main characters holding hands and walking into the zoo together. I wanted to choose a cover that could be similar across all of the books in the series. In the first book, the girls are seen walking together into the pool. I thought this would be a great way to show case a little of what the book would be about. Then I could make it similar for all of the books by having the girls walking into each activity they are going to be engaging in for that specific book. I really wanted each cover to be very specific and similar to something I know from my own life. My first book the pool is modeled after the pool I grew up going to. Then in the second book, I researched different entrances to zoos. I found a few that were similar and I really liked. I sent a copy of those to my illustrator.

I also wanted specific colors to be in this book cover. When I think of each book, a specific color theme comes to mind. For book one it was pink and for book two It was orange. I asked for the animals that would be in the signs to be orange to represent that. My illustration did an amazing job with this.

I wanted the animals on the front that were the statues to be some of my favorite ones. For me, these books are really personal and showcase things that mean something to me. I take inspiration from my own life for each story. My favorite animal is the tiger and one of my other top ten favorites is the seal. I thought putting those on the front would be the best because I adore them so much. I really wanted this cover to show where the girls would be going, be enticing and also show my own interests. I put so much detail into this cover and I feel like my illustrator did an amazing job.
