Comments about Dear Zoo:

I remembered this one from when I was little. Lovely reading it to my daughter. She is 8 months though and will tear the flip out pages if I'm not careful. They are sturdier than your average flip pages though.

        The most wonderful book for little children. My 18mth old son loves opening the flaps and trying to say the animal names. My 5 year old knows the book by rote and enjoys "reading" it.

          This is my 2.5 year old's favourite book! We've had it for a year and it's still read often - my daughter loves lifting the flap and making her own animal sounds.. Great story too!

              This book was a life saver on our recent 9 hour car trip! Kept our 15 month old amused - loved the surprises under all the lift up flaps! Woulds highly recommend.

                  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.
