Character Spotlight: Zoey's Mom

By Kayla Aldrich, Read to Them staff


Hello there, everyone! We hope you’re greeting the week recharged and refreshed, and are just as eager as we are to launch into the second week with Dragons & Marshmallows. To kick off this Monday, we’ll be taking a closer look at a character that inspires Zoey each and every day. And that person is:


Zoey's Mom

Name: Zoey’s Mom

Family: Zoey’s mom is married to Zoey’s father, and has one child - Zoe!

Home: Together with her husband and daughter, Zoey’s mother lives in a house close to a forest. She has an office that is occasionally filled with the beautiful, tinkling sound of a special alarm that rings when a magic creature needs her aid in the barn.

Occupation: She is a scientist. This is something Zoey and her mom often bond over, as they share a love for the natural world - like the time they observed a nest of snakes hatching. At the moment, Zoey’s mom is away at a conference for a whole week, and she’s left the care of any magical creatures who come to the barn up to Zoey!

Hobbies: From the time she was Zoey’s age, Zoey’s Mom has tended a number of magical creatures who have made their way to the barn behind their home. She has a collection of old books and journals from the many, many years she’s aided these special animals, and she’s very happy to pass this knowledge on to Zoey.

Notable Quote: “Before he left for the forest, Pip added a special doorbell to our barn’s back door. I thought I was the only one in the family who could see it. But I’m guessing you’ll be able to see it too.”
