Read with Mummy. Review - Dear Zoo

Review of Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell
  
Dear Zoo is twenty-five years old -- and still as popular as ever!
And with an updated look, this classic children's storybook about a youngster loooking for a perfect pet is sure to delight a new generation of readers!


This is a fantastic children's book. I can't believe that it is 25 years old! The simple sentences are so familiar that I could recite the whole book to you now, with my two year old joining in. The flaps of the book engage the reader as they discover the pets sent by the zoo. Elliot loves to say the animal behind each flap along with the animal noises, which leaves him giggling. This book has been enjoyed so much, it is our second copy, the first becoming a little ragged! We opted for the board book version the second time around, which I would recommend once your child gets to the stage of opening the flaps themselves. There was a lot of sellotape in the first copy!
  
Elliot's verdict - he LOVES this book. Any animal book is a huge winner for him and this would be high up on that list. Although we have changed the ending, and reject the puppy, I think Elliot would prefer the Lion!
