"Put Me in the Zoo" is an excellent book for young readers. The flow is great and I love how Robert Lopshire uses great language and tone. It is a silly book. His use of color in his illustrations brightens the book up even further. I recommend the book to young readers and parents trying to bond with their child through readings.

This book can be used to teach kids that it is okay to be different and that they should embrace what makes them unique. ( )

This book can be used to teach kids that it is okay to be different and that they should embrace what makes them unique. It also shows different colors in the spots of the animal. ( )

This story maintains a consistent rhyme scheme as the polka-dotted leopard demonstrates all the tricks he can do. ( )
