If you're allergic to books that have an obvious lesson to teach, this isn't the book for you. Gary Richmond doesn't hide at all the fact that he's drawing correlations between his experiences and the Christian life. I didn't mind, so I enjoyed this book. The stories were fun (and hair-raising at times), and illustrated some very good points.

I erally enjoyed this and "Please Don't Feed the Bears." Richmond's stories about the zoo are interesting, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and are followed by spiritual insight or a lesson learned. I will be reading these with my kids for family devotions when they get a little older.
Gary Richmond does a great job in this book of relating his zookeeper experience with the animals he cared for and how it taught him so much about animals, people, the earth that we share and the God who made us.
I loved this book growing up, and am glad I finally remembered what it was called! This is a fun memoir of a zookeeper's experiences with animals both in and out of the zoo.
I loved the author's anectdotes about his time as a zookeeper and equating it to the Christian walk. An uplifting and insightful read!!
cute little stories from someone that worked at a zoo- after reading, i had a desire to go to the zoo.
