Edwina the Emu
This is one of our favorite books with a funny story about a 'shoulda stayed at home Emu mom' (we all know that story huh?)
While we were in Tampa this week we stopped by the Lowry zoo, which was supposed to be the top rated zoo for children; and it really was very child friendly and fun. We made our way to the Wallaroo station with all animals from Australia and Anjali was delighted to see a pair of Emus. She immediately recognized them and called them Edwina and Edward (like in the book). She went close to the fence and shouted "come HERE Edwina" and was yelling "yeek" (the sound they make in the wild I guess) to no response from the birds. They are great big birds who cant fly and apparently cant walk backwards.
