When my kids were younger, we used the spiral bound version of this, when we visited the zoo. It has a simple layout and a few easy to understand facts about each animal. Right now, you can get the Zoo Guide download for FREE. It’s in a PDF format. You have to download it by March 24, 2014 or it goes up to $7.99.
It is all from a Christian/Creation perspective, from the organization called Answers in Genesis. Their conference (and now website) was a pivotal piece in my husband’s search for answers on his worldview, in college. He is very analytical/science minded, so all the conflicting information out there had him wondering. He was full of questions about the Bible and the world around him. So, this is my “warning” for those of you who are not wanting a Christian/Creation perspective . . . well, it is. And, if you’re looking for answers to origin questions and beyond, their website is an easy to use resource.
I’m not posting this to create conflict . . . nobody has to download it. But, we found it as a valuable tool and a free download is better than the $14.99 we paid, long ago. Yes, I still remember. They didn’t have the smaller pocket guide. Ours was full size. Since I’m ancient, I don’t even know if I knew about downloads then! :)
