Gr 4-7-- Partly a promotion for an animal rescue park in New Jersey, this anecdotal account also encourages humane treatment and consideration for all creatures, wild or tame. Now a federally licensed zoo, Popcorn Park is traced from its humble origins in 1977 to becoming a residence for over 200 inhabitants that include unwanted or abused pets and animals from roadside or traveling zoos. Attractive full-color photos show local wildlife foundlings; farm animals; and a lion, a tiger, and a teen-aged elephant. Multiethnic children are shown feeding animals popcorn (no oil or salt) on the title page. Although arranged simply, the chatty text is choppy with its many short paragraphs set off with distractingly prominent initial caps. The final section outlines zoo programs and gives advice on how readers can assist animals. A useful list of further reading includes Scott's Safe in the Spotlight (Morrow, 1991). --Ruth M. McConnell, San Antonio Public Library
