Panda Mania!

June 10, 2013 | Patty & Janet | Comments (0)

They're here!  The long awaited May arrival of pandas Da Mao and his prospective mate Er Shun at the Toronto Zoo brought to mind a number of our favourite children's panda and zoo-themed titles.  If you plan on visiting the Zoo's Giant Panda Experience, take some time to share a few of these fiction and nonfiction titles with your child.

In case you didn't know, the Toronto Zoo is one of the many venues that participates in The Sun Life Financial Museum + Arts Pass (MAP) program, which lets you and your family (2 adults & up to 5 children) explore some of the best of Toronto's arts and cultural treasures for free.
