Animal Storytime

Animal Storytime is an engaging story about the animals found around a watering hole in the African Savannah, using a variety of puppets and songs. The children will be invited to sit with us and join in as we tell the story, which features some of the animals they may see at the zoo.

Children build the lively story with actions, answers and songs - adults are encouraged to join in too!
