From Booklist:

Reviewed with Susan Ring's Project Elephant.

Gr. 3-6. "The new baby is not a pet or a performer." Like many of the books about wild animals, conservation is the focus in these photo-essays in the Zoo Life series. Each book begins with the drama of a baby born in a zoo in the U.S. A section on the parents follows, revealing that most were born in the wild, orphaned, and brought to the zoo. Along with providing information about each animal's physiology, natural habitat, etc., Ring discusses issues related to captivity and the benefits and drawbacks of zoo life. The approachable design includes lively color photos of the animals on each double-page spread and fascinating boxed facts about everything from the weight of elephants to the social nature of hippos. The crucial zoo issues are sure to spark discussion, and some readers may take up the invitation to work as zoo volunteers or docents. The bibliography includes lists of organizations and Web sites.
