A New Family Series at the Toledo Zoo
TOLEDO, Ohio – Leonardo da Vinci once said, “Learning is the only thing the mind never exhausts, never fears and never regrets.” Toledo Zoo and the University of Findlay’s Mazza Museum are proud to present a new learning opportunity with Authors, Animals, and Art, a meet-the-creative series at the Zoo.
The first event of this series will feature Steven Savage, illustrator of “Polar Bear Morning,” and will be held on Sunday, Nov. 10 from 1-3 p.m. in The Great Hall of Toledo Zoo’s ProMedica Museum of Natural History. The afternoon will begin with a short multimedia presentation from the illustrator, followed by Savage reading the book aloud. The event will conclude with a meet-and-greet and Savage signing books. Copies of “Polar Bear Morning” will be available for purchase.
“Polar Bear Morning,” is a children’s book created for ages 3-5, is authored by Lauren Thompson and illustrated by Savage. The book tells the story of two polar bear cubs that venture from their dens to explore their Arctic habitat and form a new friendship. The 32-page book was released in January 2013 as a follow-up to the award-winning “Polar Bear Night” and has garnered rave reviews.
Authors, Animals, and Art is open to all ages, and is free with Zoo admission. Guests are encouraged to come early and explore the new Museum, including the mini Mazza Gallery on the second floor! No pre-registrations is required.
