  3. Who doesn t love Dr Seuss, with his nonsensical words and lovable creatures This was an adorable story of what a boy imagines he would put in his zoo if it were his, to make it the best zoo in the world One of a kind creatures, he reasons would surely draw customers and they would be awe...

  4. While on the project of re reading classic children s books with my nine year old brother, If I Ran The Zoo, was the third book of our expedition into Dr Seuss s world.Exactly like all of his other books, this one was great A little journey into weird, and extraordinary nooks all over the fantasy world with one goal, to find and capture, unique animals and bring them back to the new zoo The Zoo McGrew, made by little Gerald McGrew, is the place to be if you are an amazing animal, or a curious While on the project of re reading classic children s books with my nine year old brother, If I Ran The Zoo, was the third book of our expedition into Dr Seuss s world.Exactly like all of his other books, this one was great A little journey into weird, and extraordinary nooks all over the fantas...

  5. Probably the only Suess book I ve read that just doesn t work Reading these rhymes out loud was difficult, and not in a fun way The sentences were way too long and stretched oddly to make them rhyme It just didn t flow well But the worst part is the casual racism While imagining capturing dozens...

  6. Dr Seuss famous trademark for his children s book are the rhyming and made up words, which I have enjoyed in this tale Once , he showcased how a child s imagination is immense just like how creative Gerald McGrew is in the story.

  7. Mainly due to the phrase helpers who all wear their eyes at a slant , I can not recommend this book I was surprised and not expecting to encounter such a statement in a Dr Seuss book Guess that showed me Luckily, I tend to read ahead in my mind and skipped that entire part when reading to my children People who excuse such comments based on when the book was written annoy me Because the book was written in 1950, that makes it ok for me to read it to my kids I do not think so Otherwise, Mainly due to the phrase helpers who all wear their eyes at a slant , I can not recommend this book I was surprised and not expecting to encounter such a statement in a Dr Seuss book Guess that showed me Luckily, I tend to read ahead in my mind and skipped that entire part when reading to my children People who excuse such comments based on when the book was written annoy me Because the book was written in 1950, that makes it ok for me to r...

  8. I don t believe in banning books, but I wish I had been warned about this book There are, to me, very offensive depictions and descriptions of Asians and Africans in this book When I turned the page an...

  9. I like Dr Seuss as much as the next guy, but boy howdy does this book have some problems First off, the whole premise of the book is upsetting A little boy fantasizes about becoming the new zoo keeper He imagines capturing the most rare and unusual animals for his zoo, embarking on a hunting expedition to catch as many unusual animals as he can find ...

  10. While this book has some great flights of fancy and imagination, it suffers from a lack of any substance or focus to that When you also add in that Seuss relies on some unfortunate racist caricatures for a few of his visual gags in this book, it is a hard book to recommend Of in...
