Thank you Glendale Library and Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium for teaming up and giving the community’s children a free way to learn, respect and encourage a love for animals.
A few months back, the Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium (www.wildlifeworld.com) made a visit to our local library. It was an awesome opportunity for us to take advantage of. And although the auditorium was not packed out; approximately 75 children ranging in ages all seemed to have a blast.
Two employees from Wildlife talked and showed off a several of their residents including a boa constrictor, Madagascar hissing cockroaches, a sugar glider and a baby alligator, just to name a few. The children were able to touch, see, hear some facts and ask questions for each animal shared.
For my two, this was awesome. Both Zander, 5, and Lexi, 1, love animals. They were very curious. Zander asked a few questions and even wanted to hold one of the Madagascar hissing cockroaches. This he did not get from his mom. lol It held their attention and was very educational. Even Dale and I enjoyed the event. Even more we enjoyed seeing the children smile, laugh and enjoy learning.
To sweeten the deal, they handed out coupons to every child their for free admission to the zoo. What a great night we had.
