We are members of a little zoo in Atascadero, California named Charles Paddock Zoo. The zoo is quite small. So small in fact that recent visits lasted around 15 minutes as my children blew by all the exhibits without so much as glancing at the animals. They've seen them plenty of times, but I wanted them to really take a look at each individual animal. I also wanted to make the trip to the zoo last a little longer and add some more interaction. I decided to make a booklet featuring animals specific to the ones at Charles Paddock Zoo.
