What the Sleepy Animals Do at the Audubon Zoo by Grace Millsaps


What the Sleepy Animals Do at the Audubon Zoo by Grace Millsaps

Ever wonder why the animals at the zoo are always so sleepy? What the Sleepy Animals Do at the Audubon Zoo will answer your questions once and for all. When Renee asks her father why the zoo animals are snoozing all day, he dreams up an elaborate answer. At night, the monkeys steal the zookeeper's keys, and all of the animals come out of their cages to dance, eat, and play. Rhinos rock out. Alligators stroll under limbo polls. Elephants pound the piano. Pelicans cater. By the time the visitors arrive in the morning, the animals are all tuckered out. Renee doesn't believe her father's tale, but dads have a way of being right about these things. This fantastic story captures the culture and charm of the New Orleans and its beloved zoo with rich illustrations and playful rhyme.
