Jennifer Diliberti-Shea, public relations coordinator at the Milwaukee County Zoo, thinks the zoo's classes, exhibits and activities are a great example of edu-tainment -- the idea of teaching kids through fun. The point is to build an experience kids enjoy so much that they don't even realize they're getting an education.

And those edu-tainment opportunities aren't confined to the zoo.

Diliberti-Shea, who first hear the term edu-tainment when she worked at the Milwaukee Public Museum, tells the story of her sister-in-law visiting with her child on vacation from Hawaii.

She was thrilled with all there was to do with her child in metro Milwaukee. Diliberti-Shea says, "She still raves about Milwaukee and all that it has to offer for families!" Yes, you read that right -- people who live in HAWAII are excited to travel here because there's so much for kids to do!
