Zachary’s Zoo by Mike and Amy Nappa and illustrated by Lyn Boyer has 32 pages and is published by Nappaland Communications.
This book is about a young boy named Zachary who needs to care for his pets. He cares for them as he pretends to be a zookeeper to a dog, cat and other animals.
At the very beginning of the book there is a Bible verse from Colossians 3:23 which talks about working from the heart as if it were for the Lord. This verse really sets the tone for the story. This story along with the verse shows children how to be good stewards of what God has given them.
Children who like animals will enjoy how the illustrations mix the inside of a house with the ecosystem of each animal. This is an I Can Read Beginning 1 reading book and is a favorite of my 4-year-old son.
