Suggested for ages 3+

Meet at Sunset Zoo for a fun, animal-themed storytime. The zoo allows free admission to families attending the program and Claflin Books & Copies sponsors ZOOfari with a book giveaway each month.

Children are invited to listen to stories, move and dance like animals, and explore interesting animal biofacts such as furs, feathers and skulls. Some programs include meeting a live animal from the zoo as well.

Pick up a punch card from staff when you attend. Each child who attends at least 6 sessions during the year will be entered into a drawing for a free Friends of Sunset Zoo family membership. The drawing will take place in December.
