Robert Lopshire’s Put Me in the Zoo tells the tale of Spot, an amazing leopard who’s eager to live not in the wild, but in a zoo! Yet even as he wows a young boy and girl with his magical dots, the children still ask, “does it take what he’s got?” Chock full of rhymes and wonderment, Robert Lopshire’s Put Me in the Zoo is sure to be all the rage with your young readers, even if Spot does not end up in a cage!
Tie-in Activity: This is a perfect story to help teach the sight word, ZOO. Younger children can spot Z-O-O in the artwork on almost every page. Older children can go on a slightly more challenging “word hunt,” by looking for Z-O-O in the running text.
