        My toddler gives me this book sometimes to read to him. He decides what I read him, so he likes it. The illustrations are nice and the story is repetitive enough so he does not lose track of what's going on. The extra fun is provided by the flaps he can lift to reveal the animals. Fine book.

            This book is a classic that deserves a place in any childs library. My little ones love this book and I loved it as a child too. Its a great pleasure to be able to read this book to others who enjoy it just as much as I did. This book has helped engage my children and develop a love for reading. The board book is sturdy and all the flaps are intact and good condition after over a years use.

                Bought as a baby gift. A terrific book for children to interact with. Lots of early reading skills to learn here.

                  This is a timeless classic childrens book. Read it as a kid myself and re-bought it for my 4 month old son now. I'm sure this book will get lots and lots of reads before bed.

                    It's a wonderfully interactive book, not only can they open the flap but they can also name the animal, what sound it makes and what colour it is. My 1 year old absolutely loves it and it is a regular at bedtime in our house - "Zoo, zoo please Mummy".

                          I remember loving this book when I was a child. I bought for my 2 children and they absolutely love it! My miss 2 loves opening the flaps and identifying each animal & my 6 month old son thinks it is the funniest book going around! Can't recommend enough!
