Rod Campbell’s classic lift-the-flap book Dear Zoo has been a firm favourite with toddlers and parents alike ever since it was first published in 1982.
‘I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet . . .’
Young children will love lifting the flaps to discover the animals the zoo has sent – a monkey, a lion and even an elephant! But will they ever manage to send the perfect pet?
With bright, bold artwork, a catchy refrain and a whole host of favourite animals, Dear Zoo is a must for every child’s bookshelf – and the thick card pages, chunky cased cover and sturdy flaps make it perfect for small hands.
Look out for Rod Campbell’s Look After Us, a lift-the-flap animal book for toddlers with a positive message about conservation.
This truly is a board book classic that takes me right back to my own childhood. It is heart-warming to read the book with my own children and see them experience that same joy I once did, lifting the flaps, spotting Sam and making animal sounds -- Rachael Davis * Picture Book Perfect * Dear Zoo is a classic that children never seem to tire of and is always a pleasure to read. * The Sun * A delight to read again and again. * The Independent * Preschool classic. * The Bookseller *
