The Anderson Public Library kicked off their Summer Reading Program with a host of amazing animals.  Celia and Caroline Armstrong from Animal EdZOOcation were at the library with six exotic animals to bring learning to life.

The program, called Animal Tales, was based this year on the Olympics and how animals have natural Olympic abilities.  Some of the six animals included a 15 year old African Sulcata Tortoise, a Giant African Bullfrog, and a Patagonian Cavy, which is the world’s second largest rodent.

Each animal was chosen for a specific natural ability.  For instance the cavy has extremely wide peripheral vision and can see almost behind itself.

The children in the program not only got to learn about the animals, but also interact with them.  Over 100 children attended the earlier sessions and dozens more were at the later one.
