What if animals did what YOU do? This sweet story describes what animals might do in the classroom!

If animals went to school...what would they do? Beaver would practice counting with sticks. Goat would snack on the storybooks. And at recess, Goose would glide down Giraffe’s neck slide! Across the animal kingdom, every creature would learn, play, and make new friends.
