      Comments about Dear Zoo:

      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!

                      This was the first choice of bedtime story for both my sons and is now a first choice for my granddaughter. Children love interacting with the book as they pull back the doors to reveal another animal that the zoo has sent. The ending is perfect when the child finally gets the perfect gift. It is a great bedtime read and not too long for tired parents.

                        My son is 12 months old and has recently discovered this book in parallel with his developing dexterity. He loves to turn the flaps and the look of concentration followed by self satisfaction on his face when he succeeds is priceless. There is only one animal under each flap making it easy to read and I am sure in time he will know the animals and their noises too. A great book
