An Animal Tales presentation introduces the young learner to animal life through a shared story and a hands-on encounter with one of our Animal Ambassadors.
First, our talented educators will read an age-appropriate animal-themed picture book. Then, children will learn facts about an animal featured in the story and interact with a live version of that animal. Children are permitted to touch the animal whenever it is safe and appropriate. Recommended for preschool and early elementary ages, this program is perfect for early childhood centers, daycare facilities, and academic preschools.
