This warm and whimsical picture book opens with a little boy eagerly anticipating a trip to the zoo as his mother straps him into his car seat. Like most toddlers, he would rather run free than wear a seat belt, ride in a stroller, hold Mommy's hand, or climb into her backpack. As they pass various animal exhibits, the little boy asks teasing questions, such as "If I were a monkey, would I have to wear a helmet?" Mommy's light-hearted responses reveal, in a bouncy cadence, how animal and human moms alike keep their rambunctious young ones close and safe.

This is the story of a little boy who goes to the zoo with his mom and learns about all of the things that the animals do to stay safe that are different than people. It is a cute story—sometimes it rhymes, sometimes it doesn't. The pictures are lovely! Read full review
