What better way to celebrate the birthday of beloved children's book author Dr. Seuss and Read Across America than to hop onboard the Early Literacy Mobile at the zoo?
The Early Literacy Mobile is not just a library in a big truck with shelves and shelves of books for children under 5 years old. It’s also an early literacy experience. Play onboard with letters and gears on the magnetic board, pretend you’re driving the bookmobile with the “Play to Learn” station, show off your hula hooping skills, and speak to the children’s librarian about the fun and easy things you can do every day with your child to bring books alive.
Stop by the Wildlife Theater to meet Cat the Hat in person, to listen to celebrity guests like Golden State Warrior's Freestyle Franco and others read beloved Dr. Seuss classics, and to learn fun facts about our animals from Seuss-themed Keeper Talks. Then come onboard the Early Literacy Mobile, parked near the Children's Zoo entrance, for a quick read or to check out your favorite Dr. Seuss books.
See you there!
*Please note, this Read Across America event at the zoo is not a free event.
