About this title


Looks at the history of zoos, describes their conservation function, and shows how they educate the public

From Library Journal:

Although Koebner has done her homework-her list of acknowledgments reads like a "who's who" of the zoo world-Zoo Book faces competition from Colin Tudge's Last Animals at the Zoo (LJ 3/1/ 92), Janine Benyus's Beastly Behaviors (LJ 9/1/92), Jake Page's Zoo: The Modern Ark (LJ 5/1/90), and Allen Nyhuis's The Zoo Book (LJ 5/1/94). While Zoo Book is enlivened by numerous full-color photographs, the text is average. Koebner has carefully written this book to foster appreciation for the development of zoos, conservation efforts, and humanity's attitude toward animals. Yet her first section, "Zoos Around the Continent," is sadly limited; interested parties will find Nyhuis's travel guide of greater value. She seems to have her facts straight when discussing zoo history and conservation efforts, so one wonders why she refers to the American Association of Zoological Parks and Aquariums (AAZPA) as the American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA). An optional purchase. (Index not seen.)-Edell Marie Schaefer, Brookfield P.L., Wis.
