Trainer Tom works with the animals at the zoo helping them learn important life skills. It isn't always an easy job. Sometimes the animals don't want to learn. But with Trainer Tom's tips, tricks, and loving guidance, the animals at the zoo are guaranteed to be their best selves. Young readers, who are developing many of the same skills as the animals, will identify with the zoo animals as they begin to learn new ways of looking at life and relationships. Included in every book is a page for caregivers and teachers that suggests reading and writing prompts to help aid in reading comprehension.
