    Highly Recommended '-'

    I counted this book a favorite book of mine. I read the book, ZOOMAN SAM written by the author Lois Lowry. This book is about the little four year old boy Sam. In his school, their planing to have all dressed like their future job or in other words they are planning to have their own future job day. They have to wear a dressed of their future job profession such as if you want to be a fire fighter, you have to wear like fire fighters. Little Sam has hard time figuring out what he wants to be in the future and what clothes he is going to wear in their future job day in the school. His dad wants him to be a college professor which he doesn't like to be in his future. Finally, Sam decided to be a zoo man. His mom find a suit for him and his sister, Anastasia find him a zoo keeper's hat. Most of his friends wants to become a fire fighter and few wants to become a teacher etc. All of the students have to explain about their own job in front of the class in which Sam explained about his future job as a zoo keeper. Also he worked very hard at his house to train their dog Sleuth because nobody can a food word loudly in their house. Sam and Anastasia's friend Steve trained him. Guess what all of his family members consider him at the end.
    While I was reading, I found that there were lots of different themes, but the one I think the main message from this book is that you can always help your friends or family to solve their problems no matter who are you or what you have. In this book, Sam wants to be a zoo man in his future and his dream is to have a zoo keeper as his future job. Well, he is in elementary school right now and his teacher Mrs. Bennett plan to have all students wearing a dress that was require in their own future job. Sam wants to wear overall that zookeepers usually wears, but he doesn't have it at his home. His family came up different ideas at dinner before the future job day. Finally, they all agreed with Sam being a zoo man and come up different clothing that he can wear. They do not have anything that zookeepers wear. Then his dad gave him a suit that a mechanic wear in the auto repair shop. It was all falling tearing apart. His mom stayed late night repairing the overall suit after Sam went to bed. Sam's sister Anastasia went to his friends house at dark night to get the zoo keeper's hat for him. His mom and his sister, Anastasia didn't have anything before but they still helped him to be prepare for the school next day.
    This Zoo Man Sam is a really good book because I enjoyed while I was reading. There are lots of things that will makes you laugh, some times sad as well. I was wandering about Sam if he wants to spend his life with animals or he might change his job. I was surprised when Sam became a totally different person other than zoo keeper. You will find out how Sam changes to a whole new world at the end. This book relates to Sam's future and may be it will help you decide what you want to be as well in my opinion. So, I would recommend you read this book once about the little boy Sam to find out the secret about him.
