It’s GIVE-AWAY time!! Yours for the winning–1.) your very own AUTOGRAPHED copy of America’s Best Zoos! AND 2.) a MONKEY!! (your choice of a stuffed, wrap-around Douc Langur monkey OR a live, run-around Nina-monkey)*
Here’s my Amazon review of this super-cool book: If you haven’t been to a zoo lately, YOU’RE MISSING OUT. You need to get yourself a copy of America’s Best Zoos, read all about what your local zoo has to offer, and plan a trip! Then pick another zoo from the book that looks really cool, and go there too! No two zoos are alike! My family and I have been to nine zoos in two months, and each experience was completely unique–and wonderful. And America’s Best Zoos was spot-on in its summary of each zoo.
I dream of traveling the world and seeing elephants and giraffes in Africa, penguins in Antarctica, giant pandas in China and kangaroos in the Australian outback. BUT I have three young children and not a lot of money, so world travel is out for now.
BUT WAIT! Some very brilliant people have brought these amazing exotic animals right to my front door (or at least to a nearby city). I don’t think people realize how amazing it is that we get to see hippos and giraffes and giant anteaters and orangutans and lions and capybaras in THE AMERICAN MIDWEST (or wherever you live). And for such a low price!
I take America’s Best Zoos with me wherever I go. I can’t get enough of the photos and descriptions and valuable advice. Anytime I have a question about a zoo, I find the answer. I’d love to be able to check off every zoo in the book. Someday!
To be entered in the drawing, just leave a comment telling me 1.) your favorite zoo and 2.) your favorite animal. I’ll draw the lucky winner on Monday, October 6. Best wishes!
*Just kidding about the Nina-monkey. I can’t bear to part with her. But the blue langur is awfully cute and soft. I know you’ll love him!
