5.0 out of 5 stars Zoobooks is the Encyclopedia of Animals September 16, 2005
An easy to read format for the budding animal enthusiast with activities for subscribers online and inside the middle section of the magazine.

The magazine arrives about the fifteenth of each month, and not fast enough for my ten year-old son. We have been getting a subscription for about five years now. Each issue focuses on one subject with no advertisements and seventeen pages in each issue.

Inside each issue of Zoobooks the first page gives a brief overview of the profiled animal alongside a photograph that is covering two pages. The ages of the drawings and poems from kids range in age from six to eleven, showing a wide age range that Zoobooks attracts. The text is geared for adults and children with beautiful photographs and artistry nestled inside this thin monthly magazine.

At first it might seem like not much for the money but it is just enough to keep the interest of a child, offering many visits back to issues to see the beauty in each animal. My son loves this magazine. He is an animal lover and on the autism spectrum.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great magazine! January 9, 2003
This is a wonderful magazine for a number of reasons: there's no advertising, it has wonderful photography, and in-depth information on the animals profiled in each issue. The language is simple enough for younger readers to enjoy, and colorful enough to keep older readers interested. Anyone with a love of animals would be delighted with this magazine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zoobooks November 3, 2005
My 6 year old son loved this magazine. His eyes would light up whenever the magazine would arrive in the mail. The colorful photographs and fun facts about lots of types of animals made the magazine fun to read for both he and I.

5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure to keep September 22, 2004
By Payola
I hope this magazine hasn't changed from when I got it as a child 20 years or so ago, because I dearly loved it then. It's not so much a magazine, with different articles and recurring features, as a vividly illustrated report on a different group of animals each month. (I wore out the binding on my "Alligators and Crocodiles" issue.) The beautiful drawings are both fun to look at and packed with information -- when I was taking biology courses in college I realized my old Zoobooks spreads of, say, "all the parrots of the world" had given me an intuitive grasp of comparative adaptation without my realizing I was learning anything. Be warned -- if you get this for your child, you may have to listen to all of the things she has learned about monkeys for months at a time!

For animal lovers young and old, Zoobooks is a treasure! Anatomical illustrations of each animal are my favorite. The facts included in each issue are wonderful and encourage further thought and discussion.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST books to capture interest May 6, 2007
Verified Purchase
I have been buying these for years thru a Teachers Supply store and using them in HomeSchooling. These can be used for all ages because the pictures are so dynamic and colorful - little ones eyes are glued and the teenagers (even if not interested in animals and science) get drawn into reading the fasinating facts and information. Adults pick them up and read them from cover to cover.
