Books and Beasts is free to attend for all guests with zoo admission.  While walk-ins are more than welcome, we do recommend pre-registration so that we can have a headcount to help us prepare.  Books are chosen for ages 6 years and under, but all ages are certainly allowed to join!

*Please note that while guests will get to meet an animal ambassador, they will not be able to touch them during the program.  Animals are not guaranteed to match the storybook.*
