It’s been over 30 years since John Wexo hatched the idea for Zoobooks while standing in front of a primate enclosure at the zoo. His idea was simple: to create a colorful, concise, informative series of animal books to share with children that could be purchased at zoos through vending machines. The vending machine gave way to subscription sales, and Zoobooks was soon being shipped to hundreds of thousands of subscribers around the world. To meet the clamoring demand of librarians, the first hardcover editions of Zoobooks were produced in 1983.
Now you can find Zoobooks, Zootles, and Zoobies in homes, schools, and libraries around the world. You can buy them by subscription or by single editions in the Zoobooks web store, in select bookstores and in finer zoo, museum, aquarium and park gift shops and specialty retailers around the country.
