The polar bear are splashing in their pool. The monkeys are having the time of their lives in the trees. The lion peacefully observes his surroundings. The zoo is a great place to see animals from all over the world in one place. But who takes care of them and their home the zoo? The zookeeper. In Z is for Zookeeper: A Zoo Alphabet children will learn that he's probably the busiest person there. And if you don't see the zookeepers, rest assured they're doing their job and doing it well. After all, someone has to feed, clean, nurse and clean up after this diverse adopted family. Who better to write an exploration into this trade than a zookeeper and his wife? Roland Smith brings his 20 years of experience and passion to every line in Z is for Zookeeper. Children will have a front seat into the inner workings, challenges and rewards of a day in the life of the zoo. This trip to the zoo wouldn't be complete without the whimsical animals and settings that spring from school-favorite artist's Henry Cole's expert brush strokes. Z is for Zookeeper: A Zoo Alphabet is a true original, exploring a rarely seen side of one of America's favorite family attractions. As a great keepsake of a fun day or as an educational tool on career day or a fun read before lights out, this detailed account of the zookeeper is sure to change the way readers see the zoo.

About the Author:

Roland Smith grew up in Oregon and live on a small farm south of Portland. Roland is the author of many award-winning books for children including Thunder Cave, Sasquatch, Jaguar, Zach's Lie, and The Captain's Dog: My Journey with the Lewis and Clark Tribe, which won the Pacific Northwest Bookseller's Award. Roland and his wife Marie also collaborated on B is for Beaver: An Oregon Alphabet, published in 2003.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 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
