3: One day, he found a friend! His friend was hippopotamus. All day long the friends played and played. They shared their water toys with each other. They decided to find some more friends to play with.

4: So they began to search. Wait a minute. Who is this fun person they see having fun all by herself?

5: They didn't want to scare her. They were VERY big. And she was VERY small.

8: It was LOVE at first sight! Both girls were thrilled with the zoo animals. And the zoo animals were were thrilled with the two little girls.

11: "Let's play," said a monkey. "Play tag!" said a giraffe.

12: "Tag, you're it," said a penguin. "A zebra's 'it'!"

13: "Tag, you're it," said a zebra. "A frog is 'it'!"

14: "That was a LOT of playing," said a tiger. "Let's stop playing," said a baby penguin.

15: "We've got to go home," said the little girls. "We'll play with you tomorrow!" "I'll get more friends when you come back tomorrow," said the elephant. | "We've got to go home," said the little girls. "We'll play with you tomorrow!"
