Zoos are amazing places to see and learn about the many native and exotic of animals that inhabit this world. Some animals are plentiful while others are threatened or in danger of extinction. Zookeepers not only feed and care for these animals, they may also be helping to conserve and protect whole species through breeding and "head start" programs. Follow the extraordinary duties of these unusual animal helpers in this behind-the-scenes photographic journal.

PreS-Gr 2—Curtis capitalizes on children's love of animals to teach them about zookeepers. Aimed at a young audience, the text is minimal, describing for readers some of the tasks zookeepers perform on a daily basis: "Could you introduce baby chimps to their new troop or provide a snack for reptiles?" Unfortunately, the text is so simple that it becomes disjointed. There is also very little explanation of the tasks, simply a listing. Attractive double-page photographs will attract readers. At the back of the book is a "For Creative Minds" section that offers additional facts about zoo habitats, wildlife conservation, and more detailed information on zookeeping as a career. The vocabulary in the back matter is written at a much higher reading level than the rest of the book, which makes it necessary for adults to interpret for young readers. —Susan E. Murray, formerly at Glendale Public Library, AZ
