Storybook Safari: Good Night Gorilla

One month old western lowland gorilla Moke.

Learn about animals from beloved children’s books! Pick your favorite book and character, or come to them all. These preschool classes will follow the same format and schedule as all other FONZ preschool classes.

Sept. 14 - Good Night Gorilla: Get to know the gentle giants behind this beloved good night book. Then, take a walk and say hello to the newest member of the gorilla troop: baby Moke!

FONZ preschool classes are designed for children ages 2-3 to discover a whole new view of the Smithsonian's National Zoo. “Adult-and-me” format classes use interactive learning stations, hands-on activities and crafts, Nature Play and exciting Zoo walks to engage your child’s sense of wonder and curiosity about wildlife and the natural world.
