My Visit to the Zoo

Today is a good day.

Do you know why today is a good day?

It is a good day because I am going to the zoo.

I love the zoo, I love animals, and I love to take pictures of the animals.

My favourite animal is an elephant, I hope I see elephants today.

My favourite animal is an elephant because of their ears.

Their ears are so big, I always smile when I see their ears.

I hope I can see lots of elephants today.

But I love all animals so I know that it does not matter if I don't see elephants because there are so many other animals at the zoo.

I have to pack my bag before I go to the zoo, I don't want to forget anything.

In my bag, I have my camera to take pictures, a jumper in case I am cold, and some money so I can buy a teddy bear from the gift shop.

Yes, today is a really good day.
