    Amazon.com Review

    Zoobooks Magazine is a favorite of zoos throughout the country. Filled with great animal pictures and informative articles, Zoobooks is a perfect zoological reference for any child aged six to twelve years old who loves animals. Each issue is themed around a specific animal or group of animals, discussing habits and habitat in depth so the reader gains a thorough understanding. Best of all, this magazine is refreshingly free of advertising.

    An issue of Zoobooks Magazine has about 24 pages. Most of the magazine is packed with colorful pictures and illustrations of the theme animal, as well as short articles and fact sidebars. The most unique features of each animal are broken down and explained at a child's level. For species that are extinct or becoming extinct, children are encouraged to take action to ensure those animals' futures. The last four pages of each edition offer a pull-out activity booklet filled with games, puzzles, and coloring pages.

    Zoobooks Magazine started as a product parents could purchase at kiosks near zoo exhibits appropriate to the specific issue. Demand for complete sets of Zoobooks quickly grew, and Wildlife Education Ltd. began selling subscriptions. Today, Zoobooks Magazine subscriptions also include monthly access to the online Secret Jungle, where kids can print out more animal-themed activities and play online games. Here, kids can also participate in a bi-weekly eSafari, in which subscribers can take a guided tour of great online animal sites and learn more about the particular month's theme animal.

    Zoobooks Magazine offers a fantastic way for parents to answer all those animal questions inspired by zoo visits. Many budding zoologists save every issue, building a collection they can refer to for years to come.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Educational and fun March 10, 2012
    Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
    Our seven year old loves these magazines, and gets very excited whenever a new one arrives. We started getting them for him when he was only 5, and while he enjoyed them then, he really didn't get engrossed with them until he was 6. They have a lot of detailed information about whatever animal they are featuring, with gorgeous illustrations and photographs. They do include often include pictures of the animals as predator or prey, so if you have a child who is really sensitive to wildlife deaths, take that into account when deciding if this is right for you. (Our son isn't bothered by it, but one of his friends sometimes gets a little upset when looking through the magazines at our house.) These are definitely aimed at a slightly older child, so if you have a younger child, look at Zootles instead.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, another second generation ZooBooks Family! December 25, 2010
    By gilly8
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    We first ran across a Zoobook magazine in the gift shop section at Smoky Mountains National Park. I bought one for my then six year old younger son. He became so involved in it, and so excited, that when we got home I immediately subscribed, and the subscription continued for quite a few years.

    Now he is out of college and working full time...and still has ALL his Zoobooks in a case, sealed up, in my house. That says something, I think, with all the books and magazines my kids were given over the years.

    I do NOT know how the current issues are, but am subscribing for my 6 yr old and 4 yr old grandsons, the sons of my elder son. The older boy is currently REALLY into dinosaurs, and I recall with my son's subscription, there were quite a few that covered dinosaurs, as well as current animals, birds and so on.

    I know the price is high compared to many other children's magazines out there, but I think it is worth it IF they are what they were approximately 20 years ago! At that time they were head and shoulders in quality above every other childrens' magazine about nature, animals, and so on, or at least until the child is old enough to read the adult version of National Geographic magazine!

    Very highly recommended!

    We bought a year subscription (10 issues) through Groupon for $10. I've seen them come through a few times now so if you want to order this great magazine but the price is keeping you from doing it look around. There are deals out there if you are patient!

    5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Generation ZooBooks Lover! December 18, 2010
    By K.L.B.
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    As to the price, I just received our renewal notice, and the Amazon price is identical for 1 year, minus the poster and stickers.

    To the product, I grew up with ZooBooks and absolutely loved them (still trying to find my three 2 in. binders full in my parents garage); so as soon as my son started reading, we signed him up. Nearing his first year of subscription he loves them just as much as I did.

    Now, having read and enjoyed them for years as a child, and now looking at them again as an adult, I must say, I am not sure the quality is now what it was 20 years ago. Until I find my back issues, I can not say for sure, but they do not seem to have as many pages these days. Also, I am pretty sure that 1 year equaled 12 issues, but it seems that the entire magazine industry is going to fewer issues per year to save.

    All and all however, this is still a wonderful product for any inquisitive child and I happily give it 5 stars!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine October 30, 2012
    By backncy

    Great magazine. We enjoy it every month. It does have a pretty high reading level but the pictures keep lower readers interested. A good magazine for a family with different level readers and animal lovers.

    5.0 out of 5 stars I still remember it vividly.... April 15, 2013
    By Mossy
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    A homeschooling family, we had a subscription to this growing up, and i still vividly remember it, especially the illustrations of the muscles and bones of each animal. I still think that bodies are amazing. Now i have this for my son, and each issue gets read over and over again. It's the only kid's magazine designed for someone who really wants to learn, and who has a reasonable attention span. My kids don't need something that skims the surface of several topics per page, has a bunch of annoying cartoon characters, and is otherwise trying to make up for not being TV. Zoobooks rocks!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Love Zoobooks! November 5, 2014
    By Amy R.
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    My children are now 21 and 18 years of age and about a month ago my son randomly asked, "Do they still make Zoobooks?" I replied honestly that I didn't know. It has been many years since we had a subscription. But that question invoked a discussion between my now grown up children about how much they used to LOVE Zoobook magazines and it stirred up some fond memories of sitting down and going through each and every issue page by page with them. I was surprised that both of them could still recite several animal facts that they had learned from the magazine! Who knew they were paying so much attention!!? I love this magazine. We sampled a few children's magazines when mine were young and this was by far the most loved. I think we subscribed to it for about three years.

    Another telling sign about the mesmerizing quality of this magazine is that I work at a V.A. hospital and have always brought my magazines from home to our waiting room for our patients' enjoyment. Over the years I have brought in Reader's Digest, Time, Newsweek, People, Lady's Home Journal, Sports Illustrated etc... The magazines are looked at and eventually thrown away to make room for new ones.....except for the Zoobooks. I remember laughing with my husband years ago about the fact that the Zoobooks always mysteriously disappeared, usually within a week of me bringing new ones in. Sometimes our patients would ask if they could take one for their grandchildren but usually, they were just gone. In my opinion this is more proof about how delightful this magazine is. I highly recommend it.
