The story tells of a family's trip to the zoo and at every stop the son asks his parents if they can take home that animal for a pet.  And for every request, the father has a reason why owning that animal as a pet wouldn't be a good idea.  The story is told in such a way that kids and parents alike will find it funny. The illustrations are bright and colorful depicting the obvious (to parents) reason why it isn't such a good idea to have a wild animal as a pet.  Our daughter found the flamingo page to be her favorite and I liked the penguin and polar bear page.   The best part of the book is not only the teaching of the animals but that the book also comes up with animals for each letter of the alphabet.  I was quite impressed with the choice of animals and the witty rhymes that went with them.  I think this book would be a hit for any lower elementary child and would be a great addition to a school classroom as well. Included in the book is a Forward, written by Marc Heinzman of the Niabi Zoo near Moline, Illinois.  He writes that the importance of this book is sharing our love for animals and how necessary it is for them to get the proper care needed.  By visiting zoos we can learn more about all these special animals as well as help support them in their natural habitat.

Beautifully illustrated. This is the 2nd book from Blake Ross that I have purchased for my children. They love it and the story is fun for parents to read.

Whimsical rhyming and beautifully illustrated. I would highly recommend for your younger children.
