Take A Trip To The Zoo
This whimsical, little song from the 1967 movie “Dr. Dolittle” reminds children of all ages of the wonder we feel when we spend time with the animals.
The 1967 fantasy film Dr. Dolittle catches the magic of spending some time with animals in the song “if I Could Talk With The Animals, and if you are fortunate enough to live near a zoo, you have a great opportunity to learn a little about wildlife and, at the same time, unwind and commune with nature.
Visiting a zoo reminds children and adults how important these animals are to us and how essential it is to take care of their native environment, while contributing to their care at the zoo. Many zoos are open year round and provide many changing activities guaranteeing a new experience regardless of how many times you visit.
