Zoo, Zoo, Zoo!

How about you, you, you??? 


I spy a giraffe!  Can you find it?
 
 We've been working on our summer bucket list before our summer sadly comes to a close.  One of the items on our list this year was the ZOO.  We love, love, love going to the zoo!   Fun and learning for all ages.

I could watch the seals all day!  Pictured is a mom trying to get
her baby in the water, but the baby is disobeying.
"I'm just a little bit bigger than a newborn."
"Look how tall I am, Mom."

Water fun before we leave- look at the rainbow- isn't it awesome?

Great for toddlers and babies!
Beginning counting and word recognition: animals.

National Geographic Kids

Recently, I purchased a subsciption of National Geographic Kids for the girls.  Fun and informative, the kids read it often and share tid bits with Mom and Dad.






MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS BY ATWATER, RICHARD(AUTHOR )PAPERBACK ON 02-NOV-1992

Sunshine, age 9, just finished reading Mr. Popper's Penguins by Richard Atwater for a summer reading project.  She said that her favorite part was when Mr. Popper brought home the first penguin and the mother didn't even react. 

 "Mom, there is no way you would let a penguin in our house and act like it was nothing."
