Zooprise Party / Fiesta Zoorpresa news

Hello everyone out there ‘V Zoo’ land. (a corner of Bloggerville) Zebee here playing reporter to bring you up to date on what’s happening with Zooprise Party / Fiesta Zoorpresa. I have several items to report.

First, last Wednesday, October 29th, my boss Joy, her husband Julio and two of her friends took ZP/FZ to Saint Marco’s Elementary School in Guayama. 72 students in 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades were treated to a fun time. Starting off with clapping games, the children were involved right away. Joy and the school’s Spanish teacher, Ms. Lydia Nazario, read the book out loud with a room full of attentive students. After a short discussion about the story and what a zookeeper does, the children were treated to coloring pages, crayons, juice, animal cookies and goodie bags.

Next, our good friend Margot Finke, has highlighted our book Zooprise Party / Fiesta Zoorpresa on her blog. Check it out here.
While you’re there, check out her cool pet, mischief. She’s got all sorts of great information and fun things on her blog and website. Thanks Margot for putting up such a nice post about us.

Another great review from Lea Schizas arrived this week too. You can read it on her blog The Writing Jungle. Thanks Lea!

Then, Sunday one of my boss Joy’s neighbors told her she was in one of the island newspapers. There in the Arts and Living section was a picture of Joy with the books and a short article about the books.

All in all, a great week for Zooprise Party / Fiesta Zoorpresa.

Hop on over to Laughing Zebra – Books for Children and pick up your copy and a copy for a friend or two. We offer free shipping and an autographed copy of the book.
