About this title


Zoos offer a glimpse of a rich and diverse animal world that few would ever see in its natural setting. Many zoos devote themselves to research, education, and the preservation of endangered species. Even so, some people question the morality of imprisoning animals.


"This book is certainly up-to-date, and presents in unbiased, well-reasoned discussion of the subject. There are copious notes and an equally list of books and other sources consulted, as well as contact information on organizations mentioned in the text."
-- School Library Journal (October 2001) (School Library Journal 20011001)

"Informative, forthright overview...attempts to be as objective as possible."
-- Booklist (Febraury 2002) (Booklist 20020201)

"Better than average, due to its organization, approach, and illustrations. The author takes a straightforward, informative approach, uncluttered by the authentic first-person narratives that frequently mark such books. Suggestions for further reading and help are appended."
-- School Library Journal (April 2001) (School Library Journal 20010401)

"In succinct prose and a forthright style, Strada gives teens an overview...Effortlessly blending personal comments with information...Although most of the testimonials are from older teens and adults, the simple language and tame black-and-white photographs seem to target a younger YA readership. Very simple charts may be useful to middle-graders...the book puts forward some interesting occasionally alarming data...Whether for younger or older readers, this in an unsensationalized, easy-to-understand overview that makes the core issues clear."
-- Booklist (March 2001) (Booklist 20010301)

"A book that looks at tough questions regarding cause and effect...Information is drawn from a wide, reputable assortment of sources, and from the representation of sides of the issues is photos, graphs, and cartoons are scattered throughout."
-- School Library Journal (March 2001) (School Library Journal 20010301)
