Winter Book List

This season’s booklist is all about birthdays! The new year of 2014 officially marks the San Antonio Zoo being open for 100 years! Our brand new Zootennial Plaza, complete with a carousel and upscale dining facility, is being built to help commemorate this historical event. Read these books with your little one, and then make sure to stop by and see the Plaza for yourself!
