Sam Krupnik has to dress up for Future Job day at school. He decides to go as a zookeeper and gets to tell the other kids in the class about a different animal every day.
Sam is entertaining as usual, and young people will really enjoy this book. ( )

In Lois Lowry's Zooman Sam, a little boy decided to be a zookeeper for "Future Job Day" at his school. This is a boy after my own heart. As a child (and even sometimes as an adult,) zookeeper was my absolute dream job! I have been a zoo volunteer for the last 3 years, and I've loved the zoo for as long as I can remember. But back to the book...

This book is supposed to be appropriate for 9 to 12 year olds, but I don't know. Not having children of my own it's kind of hard to judge, but I have spent some time in a 2nd grade classroom recently, and I believe this book would make a better read-aloud pick for storytime in a classroom up to the 2nd grade.

The book itself was great! I really loved reading about Sam's passion for the zoo, and his respect for the job that Jake the zookeeper does at the zoo. Zooman Sam is funny and touching, and Sam was a wonderful character to read about. ( )
