Here’s a story that takes kids inside the fantasy world of zoo animals as they get themselves and the zoo ready for holiday visitors.
Included in the book are after-story activity pages that make learning fun while guiding your child to develop the important skills of vocabulary,
reading comprehension, math, communication, written language, and
creative thinking. In addition, story coloring pages provide an opportunity for your child to develop skills such as color awareness, fine motor coordination, and imagination.
