Wild about reading

Event Flyer

Children's Literature Hawaii, the Hawaii State Public Library System and the Honolulu Zoo Society are hosted the inaugural "Wild About Reading" on Saturday, March 15th. "Wild About Reading" featured selected readings of animal-themed books by storytellers throughout the Zoo with Uncle Wayne Watkins and the family-friendly Howling Dog Band tearing it up on the Main Stage. This event was free with paid zoo admission thanks to the generosity of the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl Foundation!

Through a generous gift from local author James Rumford we gave away 500 copies of “Chee-Lin: A Giraffe’s Journey” at Wild About Reading. Didn't get your copy of the book? No worries! Mr. Rumford has also graciously provided additional signed copies of his book "Chee-Lin: A Giraffe's Journey" and you can get yours today for $25/$20 (non-members/members)
