10am – 2pm
Santa Ana Zoo
1801 East Chestnut Avenue
Santa Ana, CA 92701
The special one-day event will feature the Commission’s Big Books Booth – giant children’s books flanked by colorful beanbag seats and shelves of classic page-turners – located in the Zoo’s Amphitheatre Park.
Commission staff will lead story time readings and distribute free books to children age 5 and younger, as well as parent resources, and library card applications.
Admission to the Santa Ana Zoo is free for children age 3 and younger, $5 for children from 4-12 years old, and $8 for adults (ages 13+).
The “From A-to-Zoo” event headlines a month-long series of child literacy-themed events as part of the Commission’s “Read Early, Read Aloud” campaign. The public awareness campaign aims to reach children and parents throughout Orange County by supplying books, reading tips, story time activities, and literary resources for children ages 0-5 to help close the gap on early literacy.
Such a fun event to take your kids to tomorrow!
