Fun preschool-2nd grade zoo book based on the rhyme Twas the Night Before Christmas. Activities are in the back for teachers or parents to use with kids.

A cute take on what animals and zoo workers do the day before the zoo opens (told in a "twas the night before Christmas" style).

Fun, cartoony illustrations.
