Dear Zoo – What we’re reading this month

Dear Zoo – What we’re reading this month

With today being World Book Day I was inspired to write a new blog post starting this month with what book we’re reading.

As we are seeing Dear Zoo Live this month & recently ran a competition for one of my blog readers to win free tickets and a copy of the Dear Zoo book, it seemed fitting to recommend Dear Zoo as we’ve rediscovered our love for it!

Book: Dear Zoo
Author: Rod Campbell

Dear Zoo was Frankie’s first ‘lift the flap’ book and he can recite the words through and through. We love turning the pages to see which animal the zoo will send next as a pet for the reader, each one different and with it’s own bad traits!

We especially laugh when we recite the camel being ‘too grumpy’, ‘LIKE DADDY!’ Frankie exclaims!

It was first published in 1982 and is a much loved book, it really is a ‘must have’ for every child’s book collection, it’ll grow with the generations.

Order your copy of Dear Zoo on Amazon for just £4 – Dear Zoo – Rod Campbell – Amazon.

Additionally, I love this buggy book which I’ll be ordering for baby when he’s here – Dear Zoo – Rod Campbell – Buggy Book.

For those more active minds, I also love this ‘lift the flap’ puzzle, once put together it tells the story – Dear Zoo – Milly & Flynn Lift The Flap Puzzle.

I’d love to know if you’ve read Dear Zoo or we’ve inspired you to buy it!
