Julia will be reading Dear Zoo. Why this book? Julia thinks it’s fun to discover new animals and just because we can’t go to the zoo right now, it doesn’t mean that can’t see animals, we just have to use our imagination. After the story, Julia will lead everyone in choosing a favorite animal and making that animal’s signature sound! Get ready to roar or bark!
Young readers will love lifting the flaps to discover the animals the zoo has sent as potential pets—a monkey, a lion, and even an elephant! But will they ever find the perfect fit for the family?
With bright, bold artwork, a catchy refrain, and a whole host of furry friends, Dear Zoo is a must-have for every child’s bookshelf.
