About the Book

There's always room for one more at the Panda Palace! This sweet and funny counting book is celebrating 25 years in print—a proven read-aloud winner at home and in the classroom!

Join one hungry elephant, two carsick lions, three pigs running from a wolf, and dozens of other playful and hungry animals as they swing, bound, and bounce into the Panda Palace for a hearty meal. But when the restaurant is totally full, will Panda make room for one more guest?

Perfect for back to school and units on inclusion and empathy, this is a fun rhyming story packed with charming animals. It will bring smiles, even after repeated readings.

This rollicking, rhyming PBS StoryTime favorite is a counting book, an animal identification book, and a book with lots of food and fun! But most important, each child will come away knowing that "there will always be room at the Palace for you."
