The Wondrous San Francisco Zoo

At the San Francisco Zoo you will see tall giraffes, buff gorillas, and loud goats.
On a rainy day, make sure you wear a raincoat.
At lunch, it’s time to eat Nutella sandwiches, sit on the grass, and talk.
If you want to see the ferocious lion, you’ll have to go on a walk.
When the day is done, visit the gift shop and buy an animal tote!
