Children love to touch.  Having the opportunity to pet an animal and discover what it feels like not only expands children’s experience but brings them a greater appreciation of each animal’s uniqueness and place on our planet. 

We think every child should touch and pet as many animals as possible!  (And save those memories to enjoy for a lifetime!)
