FINNY'S CURRENT FAVOURITE book is "Dear Zoo" by Rod Campbell. He loves to pull down the flaps and hear us pretend to be the animals behind them. In fact, Finny loves all animals (something he inherited from his mother ;) ) and gets so excited whenever he sees a dog or a cat or any other animal outside. Since he loves animals so much, and since Sam had the week off of work last week, we figured it was the perfect time to bring him to the zoo. He is finally old enough to see the animals and begin to recognize them as creatures. It was the perfect fall day with crisp air and the leaves had begun to change colours and Finny loved it. He was so excited to see all the animals, especially the hippo and the lions. His favourite animal though, was the warthog. He laughed and sniffed and snorted his nose playing along with us as we pretended to be warthogs.
The Toronto zoo is really an incredible place, there is so much to do and see and it has a great combo of education and fun for adults and kids alike.
