    Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite

    Zoo on the Moon by Robin Martin-Duttman offers early elementary children the opportunity to speculate on the concept of weightlessness. A meerkat acts as a space guide, posing various possibilities to young readers in the form of activities such as flying, juggling balls, hang gliding, being an astronaut, and dancing. The illustrations portray giraffes, penguins, bears, zebras, and a hippopotamus which teach the above concepts of space activities. Children are asked to speculate whether the activity might be one which could be performed in a weightless environment.

    The illustrations in Zoo on the Moon are eye-catching and primary school readers will be drawn to the concepts being posed. Whether read in the classroom or at home, an adult reader could ask children why or why not a certain activity might be possible. This would then lead to other scientific questions and may stimulate older children to research certain concepts. Author Martin-Duttman asks children to step out of the box into the unknown when conceptualizing a zoo colony on the moon. For older listeners, the book will likely stimulate conversation about the qualities of the moon itself as well as the atmosphere surrounding the moon. For younger readers, the story will allow them to use their imaginations and to ask questions about the likelihood of those possibilities taking place outside of Earth's atmosphere. I felt the rhyming was a bit of a stretch at times but, for the most part, this is a book which will hold the interest of young readers.
