WHAT THEY ARE SAYING…
“We bought this beautifully illustrated book for our niece who absolutely loves it! This makes a great gift and is also a lot fun for the adult to read to a child as well.” — Barry Carlsen
AnLei is curious. In fact, she is VERY curious. Every day, beyond the walls of her bamboo home, AnLei hears music and watches bright colorful orbs float into the sky. Every night the sky fills with exciting bursts of light that pop and crackle.
“Will you help me look over the wall so I may see what is there?” AnLei asks her mother.
“Someday when you are bigger,” her mother answers.
AnLei decides “someday” is too long to wait. Together with her best friend Bird, she uncovers a small opening in the wall — a hole just big enough for a little panda.
Join AnLei and Bird in My Zoo Babies first adventure “Pandas on Parade”. Beautifully illustrated and easy-to-ready story will captivate the imagination and hearts of young and old.
