Day 3 : Jungle / Zoo

          Today, being Day #3, we received our reading prompt and it is listed here.
         
          All kids are excited and awed by animals, especially those living in a jungle. For a simple reason that they don't get to see these animals frequently! So a quick weekend trip to a nearby zoo or a national park or a wildlife sanctuary will do wonders in your kid's schedule. I, for one, missed to see the emotions displayed by my daughter when her school picnic was arranged in a nearby zoo (she had never visited a zoo before).

          So, when we began to read Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell, she first described me what she saw in the zoo, which animals were there, not there (mind you, this happens every time we read this book since her visit!) and only then, she lets me read!

          Hence, today, I saw a golden opportunity to introduce a new book Yes Hutoxi to her. But alas, after leafing through 4 - 5 pages, it was back to Dear Zoo (oh no! not again!)
