"Zoology for Kids invites the next generation of zoologists to discover the animal kingdom through clear, entertaining information and anecdotes, lush color photos, hands-on activities, and peer-reviewed research. Young minds are introduced to zoology as a science by discussing animals' forms, functions, and behaviors as well as the history behind zoos and aquariums. Related activities include baking edible animal cells, playing a dolphin-echolocation game, and practicing designing an exhibit. Young readers can peek into the world of zookeepers and aquarists, veterinarians, wildlife researchers, and conservationists as they "train" their friends, mold a tiger's jawbone, and perform field research in their own backyard. This engaging resource provides readers with new knowledge, a healthy respect for the animal kingdom, and the idea that they can pursue animal-related careers and make a difference to preserve and protect the natural world." said.

" This is a great book with relatable explanations and easy experiments. Kratt Brothers wrote introduction. " said.

“The Hestermanns strike an effective balance between educational material and fun that should hit a sweet spot for animal lovers.” --Publishers Weekly

“A convincing invitation to the wide world of working with animals.” --Kirkus Review

“(There’s) plenty here to engage hands-on experimenters as well as readers indulging a general interest in living things or wondering what it would be like to be a zookeeper, veterinarian, wildlife researcher, or even ‘conservation warrior.'” --Booklist

“Teachers will find these activities to be an effective way to address science standards and children will simply enjoy the hands-on experiences.” --Teacher Librarian Magazine

"My son and I flipped through an ARC copy provided by Netgalley this weekend. I was really looking forward to this one as my son is obsessed with science and animals, and animal welfare. And although the book seemed to be really interesting and informative, it was poorly formatted for an ebook (maybe this was a galley issue). I think it would be more beneficial to review a hard copy as the formatting really prevented engaging either of us, but particularly my son.

I received an arc copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you NetGalley!

"This book is packed with tons of facts, beautiful pictures and activities. It's geared for ages 9 and up but even my youngest at 7 thoroughly enjoyed the book. The dictionary in the back of the book actually was one of the fun highlights because as my 7 and 9 year old read the information they had fun looking up the words to find the meanings. I see lots of adventures in our future because of the fun interactive activities within the book. I think one of my favorites of the book was the layout and the breakdown of all about animals and then all about the different people who work with animals on a daily basis. Whether your child is one that wants to work with animals in the future or they just love animals in general this is the best book to read! " said.
