20090615155456030Going to the zoo

is more fun than

staying home.

It’s more fun than

going to school or

doing chores or

eating lima beans.

Going to the zoo

means seeing


and pythons,

egrets and spider

monkeys, cougars

and panthers.

Going to the zoo

makes me feel

like I live in a

different place,

not the city.

I think about

going to the zoo

a lot, and now

it’s finally time.
