free zoo field trip guideUnicorn Jazz is a dazzling young unicorn with incandescent purple hair, a golden horn and shining hoofs to match. Although quite timid in nature, her most stunning quality is her voice in song. When she and her parents move to a new place for the first time, she finds herself at odds with the other animal members.

Jazz’s adventures take place at a Zoo. In real life, the El Paso Zoo is located in El Paso, Texas and has been a longtime community landmark and family favorite and where author, Lisa Caprelli, grew up. Lisa was inspired by her own zoo memories. She included the historical zoo animal, Mona the Elephant, in the story because it was a favorite attraction as a child. “Let’s go see Mona! was a common request I had as a little girl,” Lisa recalls.

“I encourage children to visit your local zoo to discover, get outdoors, encourage bonding, explore and enjoy through a fresh perspective.”
