"I am 77 years old and in a senior living community in Georgia. I love The Little Zoo That Could. I learned so much about animals from all the stories. Just as animals need stimulation, so do we here. I love animals and yearn to go to zoos but do not want to drive alone anymore. So this is really wonderful that I can watch the program here."
