We love the fun lift-the- flap book Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell and this year celebrates 35 years of the firm favorite. It's a book that toddlers and parents alike will love and children will love lifting the flaps to discover the animals that the zoo has sent. Including animals such as a monkey, elephant and giraffe to name a few, however will the zoo send the perfect pet?
“I can hardly believe that Dear Zoo is celebrating its 35th anniversary! I really am enormously touched and delighted that successive generations of young children continue to love Dear Zoo - their obvious pleasure when interacting with it is so gratifying to see, and for me is the very greatest of compliments!” - Rod Campbell
Blake loves his copy of the book and is one of his favorites that he will take off the bookshelf and hand to me to be read again and again.
On the 23rd February 2017 a special hardback 35 year edition is being released.
With extra-thick paper, shiny foiled jacket and beautifully designed slipcase the edition will make the perfect birthday, Christening or Christmas present to be treasured for years.
Dear Zoo is a great classic with bright and bold artwork and is a must for children's bookshelves.
