A zoo is a small world in and of itself, where animals from every corner of the earth live together. With this book, children can move from one exhibit to the next, watch the elephants and penguins bathe, observe sea lions being fed and monkeys climbing, or explore the tropical exhibit. A picnic and a visit to the petting zoo are included, as well as a romp on the zoo playground.
