Z is for Zookeeper
by Marie Smith:
School Library Journal
K-Gr 4–Yet another addition to the spectrum of alphabet books available for young readers. This book, like the others in the series, offers quick-read rhymes based around the theme for each letter of the alphabet. For example, Q is for Quarantine./When animals are new,/here they are kept/before entering the zoo. More detailed information and interesting facts appear in the margins for advanced readers or keener zoo enthusiasts. Colored-pencil-and-watercolor artwork dominates each spread, but the text is not dwarfed by it. Readers will find the simple pictures as interesting as the text. In addition to the many animal species, they will find ample human representation and descriptions of the important work that these individuals do in caring for their charges.–Corrina Austin, Locke's Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada
