Put Me in the Zoo
Put Me in the Zoo is a classic "I Can Read It By Myself" book, orginally published in 1960 by Random House. On March 16, 2011, it was released in Kindle Edition. Written and illustrated by Robert Lopshire, the book has a lovable Dr. Seuss style; read this book to your pre-school children or give it to your beginning readers and watch them smile as the main character brags about the reasons he should be put in the zoo. He can put his spots on trees and then back on himself. He can put the spot on the wall and then make them tall. He can even make his spots change different colors on his body! This cute children's story has a unique ending that children will not expect with all of the talk of the zoo. The illustrations are simple but brightly colored and keep children turning the page. While is not the best "I Can Read" book that I've read (who can beat Dr. Seuss or P.D. Eastman?), Put Me in the Zoo is definitely a book that your young child will want to read more than once.
