  1. I just used My Heart is Like a Zoo this week, in my two-year-old toddler program, as one of several simple books and a couple of poems. We have it on our "story shelf" at my library, as one we use repeatedly for our story times. It's a great title to include in a program for older kids, when they are going to make animals out of heart shapes, either for Valentine's Day or for any program where it fits. Thanks for the great suggestions!
