Rod Campbell's classic lift-the-flap book Dear Zoo has been a firm favorite with toddlers and parents alike ever since it was first published in 1982.

Young readers love lifting the flaps to discover the animals the zoo has sent--a monkey, a lion, and even an elephant! But will they ever find the perfect pet?

With bright, bold artwork, a catchy refrain, and a whole host of favorite animals, Dear Zoo is a must for every child's bookshelf.

My son (10 months) loves lifting the flaps on this book. The flaps are made from a heavy material and so far has lasted well (unlike some other board books where they have been easily torn from the page).show more

My 18 month old loves this book! It's a simple story of various animals the zoo sends the writer to have as a pet. My daughter now knows which animal is under each flap and loves to call out it's name (e.g. "monkey!") on each page. This is a great book, especially for children 1-3 years more

Bought this book for my little one who's now 9 months and he absolutely loves it. He loves lifting the flaps to see the animals so it's not just me reading the book to him, he's actively engaging too! Started when he was 5 months on this book and till now he still goes back to this book for story time. Great more

by Leanne Thorn
This book is great Only down side is there are no names for the animals, so could be more difficult for English 2nd language. However is great as you can add your own words, as my husband likes to ..."so they sent me an... elephant from Thailand" more
