      Comments about Dear Zoo:

      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.

            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!
