Emily and Grandma were invited to go to the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. Mommy was busy helping Aunt Krista get ready for her wedding. It was very, very hot and humid. Aunt Krista's parents and her brother and her family were going to the zoo. They asked Emily and her Grandma to come with them . . . so they did!
Emily had never been to a zoo before, but she had heard about animals in the zoo from books that were read to her. The koala bear was so cute and cuddly as it sat up in a tree branch. Emily wanted to bring it home with her, but she already had many fluffy teddy bears and besides the people at the zoo would not be very happy if she took their koala bear.
