Through this wonderful Children’s Historical Book a Nashville jewel is awakened! Glendale Park was once an exciting, popular zoo and amusement park in Nashville, Tennessee. After moving to the Glendale Park neighborhood, Andy Lane fell in love with Glendale Park while listening to his older neighbors share stories about the park and zoo from their childhood.  
Now Andy Lane brings the park back to life for readers young and old with the help of talented artist Michael Sloan in this new children’s book. Modern-day children, Lee and Ellen, stumble upon the park after finding a snoring bear in their neighborhood. They are whisked into the past and experience the park just as it was years ago. The children meet Glendale’s loveable zookeeper, Clare Lovett, along with other historical figures who made Nashville spectacular. Come along as Lee and Ellen meet Zana the bear and all his animal friends. Join Lee and Ellen as they experience the park’s amazing shows and all the fun rides, including the famous carousel, the Flying Jenny. Ride along with their new friends Percy Warner and James Caldwell as they venture downtown on Nashville’s memorable electric streetcar. Share in the excitement as they join Fred Harvey at Glendale’s annual Easter egg hunt. Finally, see what special memories Lee and Ellen take with them from Glendale that they will keep with them for a lifetime.
