brief, cute, fun for naming animals
When a child asks the zoo to send a pet, they send an assortment of silly animals, hidden in lift-the-flap packages. Liam and I both love this one, the board book is a great size, although I was constantly worried he'd tear the flaps. I changed the snake's description to slithery instead of scary, I'm not sure if he'll be afraid of snakes or not.
Dear Zoo is a wonderful picture book about the zoo. It has many lifts and engaging pictures to keep the children's attention.
A charming lift-the-flap book that has become a mainstay in its genre. The story is suitably simple, aimed for the youngest of readers, and the subject of collecting exotic pets will appeal to a wide range of ages. What sets this book apart from other books like it, though, is the creativity of the various flaps. Some are cages, some have the animals peeking out the top, some are baskets ... it is fun to guess what animal you will find, based on the shape and clues in the flaps, along with the clues from the story. Making the appropriate animal sound is another fun game to accompany the reading. Both my daughters love this book, making me a happy mama.
