One day, after hours, she decides to explore the zoo and ends up having an amazing adventure of self-discovery. As a mom and a teacher, I have experienced childrens curiosity regarding what happens to the zoo animals when the zoo closes at night. As a child, I loved elephants and often wondered the same. The Wild Asia enclosureen the zoo closes at night. As a child, I loved elephants and often wondered the same. The Wild Asia enclosure is one of my favorite spots at the Bronx Zoo. I took this opportunity to awaken childrens curiosity about zoos, while emphasizing a lesson about being happy with oneself. Some fun-facts, in the Authors Note, are also included to pique childrens interest in the Bronx Zoo and some of the animals encountered by Sophie while on her adventure. Reading to your child is a gift, and it is my hope that this book provides your child with this gift. A portion of the yearly profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the Wildlife Conservation Society. read more
