My Zoo Family

O,k this is another one of those books that just doesn't quite fit my normal blogging format. I received this book as a gift from my Grandma Bumb and it was made in 1957 so it is quite old. The book is about the author and her husband who were just normal New Yorkers, until her husband friend got a job as a zookeeper at the Bronx Zoo and from there she mingled her way into caring for the baby and young animals. Basically that is the whole book, her talking about the animals she raised and the dilemma's they faced. It is a cute book, but not that well written in the sense that things needed to be ended and formatted better. As I read the book it definitely reminded me about how different the times were and couldn't help but think a million times, this would never be allowed now-a-days. Overall, if you are an animal lover you will like this book.

  1. Awe! I like that you got this book from your grandma and gave it a go. Old books are super cool and life back then was so different so I'm sure it makes for interesting reading, especially if this is about life at a zoo.
