Ellie’s Day at the Zoo

By: Carol Story

“Ellie’s Day at the Zoo” is the story of Ellie and Carol, who head to the local zoo for a fun day out. There they see all kinds of animals – birds, wolves, tigers, anteaters, leopards, red pandas, and so many more! As they see each animal, Carol tells Ellie a little bit about them.

Zoo Volunteer Carol Story reads aloud from her charmingly illustrated children’s book.
