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. - School Library Journal
Animal Helpers: Zoos would work well as an introduction to this topic to spin off students' research projects and to stimulate their interest in learning more. - NSTA Recommends
Zoos is chock full of portraits of zoo animals and their caretakers up close and will thrill young students of nature and living creatures. - Midwest Book Review
