Attempting to find out where he really belongs, a huge polka-dotted dog tries to give himself to the zoo

Reviews - What do customers think about Put Me in the Zoo (Beginner Books(R))?

Put Me in the Zoo  Mar 31, 2008
My grandchildren(ages 3 & 4) were fascinated with this library book. They wanted it read over and over, in fact, they loved it so much that I decided to buy it. It is an excellent reader for beginners and they get great fun out of attempting to read the words.
Zoo-maniac  Mar 10, 2008
My 17 month old daughter asks to read this book over and over. She points at the colored spots as they change.
A classic  Jan 22, 2008
My daughter-in-law asked me to help find this book - she told me it was my son's favorite and he wanted to have it for my grandson. I had no idea! I shouldn't have been surprised, though - I remember it fondly from my childhood too.
Wonderful for beginning readers  Dec 6, 2007
My daughter is learning how to read, but needs more confidence. You should have heard her gleefully reading this book on her own. She really enjoyed it.
Beware if you are concerned about animal rights...  Oct 14, 2007
I foolishly bought this book without reading it first. I was in a hurry and thought, "Hey, great, a board book we don't have." The pictures, as they always are from Dr. Seuss, are great. And it's a fun way to teach colors as well. But, for those, like me, who are concerned about animal welfare, and would like to raise our children valuing the same thing, I wouldn't recommend this book. It glorifies zoos as a fantastic place to be, and sometimes they are not--at least not for the animals. But the worst part was the ending: the children tell the creature that he belongs in the circus! I HATE circuses, and will never take my children to one. They're horribly demeaning to animals and the animals are not properly taken care of. I know I sound like a zealot, but I believe that it is early exposure to concepts that helps to form our children's principles. I don't want my daughter thinking that circuses are great places for animals, because they're not.

So, if anyone is as passionate about animal welfare as I am, I do not recommend this book to you. I will be returning mine to the store.
