In collaboration with Torbay Libraries, we will be running FREE* storytelling and animal mask-making sessions for young children (under 5's) on the 6th and 7th March 2019. The books being read by the library will be 'Jungle Jamboree' (by Jo Empsom) and 'Oi Frog' (by Kes Gray and Jim Field).
Also for both days, children can come to the Zoo dressed as their favourite book character to be in with the chance to win a standard animal adoption of their choice!
