My toddler goes to the book shelf and pulls this down for me to read to her at night. Each time she opens a flap we make the noise of the animal behind it. She thinks it's really funny. The words are simple and it's so fun learning about each animal.

A small child wishes for a pet and the zoo keeps sending animals that are not quite right. Will the perfect pet ever arrive?

This book is always a hit with children whether read to one child alone or a large group at storytime. There are lots of great activities linked to this book on the Little big Book club's site.
Enjoy!

My 6 month old loves this book. He tries to grab the pop-outs and the animals show up. Fun to read!

This book is about a child who gets a gift from the zoo, but they can't quite get it right and send it back. Over, and over and over again until they get it right! It's a fun flap book to pull and discover what is hiding in the gifts the zoo has sent.
