I absolutely LOVED this book as a child! The book was easy to read, engaging, and unusual (for this series from the publisher) in the sense that it had actual photographs, rather than drawings. It shows children interacting with zoo animals in various ways that capture a child's imagination. I realize that this type of book could never be made today, since modern zoos don't want to risk their animals being harmed or frightened by children and today's parents don't want their kids being hurt by a wild animal, so this makes it all the more interesting to me as a parent today. However, I think a child of today would enjoy it very much, too!

I remember my Mom reading this book to me, and then reading it myself as a child. I always wanted to go to the San Diego Zoo!!! (And finally did last week!!!!!) The beginner book club instilled a love of reading that continues to this day. Buy this one, then take your kids to the nearest zoo! If that happens to be the one in San Diego-lucky you!!!

The black and white photos throughout are classic and my kids love to look at the pictures. It is also fun to see how our local zoo (the San Diego zoo) has changed and stayed the same over the years.
