While not our favorite zoo in Texas, we still believe the Houston Zoo offers great opportunities for family-fun while in Houston.  The primates exhibit was extremely entertaining, and our children loved climbing through the "burrows" of the groundhog exhibit.  The Houston Zoo is located in the heart of beautiful Hermann Park.  We recommend you pack a picnic lunch and eat by the pond located just outside the zoo's entrance.  It is also fun to explore Hermann Park either by foot, by paddleboat, or via the miniature train that circles the park.  Tip:  Encourage your child to research their favorite animal before visiting the zoo.  When you come to that animal's exhibit, let your child be the "animal expert" and educate the rest of the family about their animal.
