The Top 100 Inspirational Books: 100 - 81
98 - If I Ran the Zoo
Gerald McGrew visits a zoo and quickly announces that the exotic animals are “not good enough.” The rest of the book, told in the quintessential Seussian style, follows Gerald as he scours the globe for the most bizarre and outlandish creatures he can find.
While not a morality tale or profound object lesson like many of Dr. Seuss’s other works, If I Ran the Zoo is a celebration of the unbridled imagination of children. Little boys and girls are inspired and even encouraged to, like Gerald, dream big and not settle for the same old same old.
“Then the whole town will gasp, ‘Why, this boy never sleeps!
No keeper before ever kept what he keeps!
There’s no telling WHAT that young fellow will do!’”
