I Was Kissed by a Seal at the Zoo is a book by Helen Palmer, the first wife of Dr. Seuss. This adorable book of photographs shows children at the San Diego Zoo and their adventures with the animals there. It's neat to see a children's book with pictures of real children, and in black and white, too. Helen Palmer also wrote the books In a Boogle House, A Fish Out of Water, and Do You Know What I'm Going to do Next Saturday?
I've included a pic of my daughter at the zoo here as well. She fits right in with those penguins! :)
