Dear Zoo - Toys, Gifts and Books Inspired by the Classic Story
Dear Zoo is a classic book by the great children's author, Rod Campbell, everybody needs a copy of this lovely story. Having recently celebrated it's 30th anniversary and millions of copies sold, Dear Zoo has cemented it's place in history as one of the most loved children's books ever.
Children love books - and especially this one. Such a simple concept and storyline but it manages to keep children engaged again and again.
Dear Zoo has just reached it's 30th anniversary which means that so many of the children who enjoyed it the first time around are now reading it to their own children now. No doubt that they are still enjoying it just as much.
The story book has sold over 5 million copies since it's launch in 1982 and is now available in many more formats than the original lift-the-flap book. There's a noisy book with the animals roaring, hissing and yapping or a touch and feel book with bits to poke and feel which tiny tots love!
I have tried and tested several of these versions on my nephew, Ben who is only just 1. Obviously he can't read yet (only a matter of time, he's clearly a child genius!) but he loves the colours and shapes, and the textures of the touch and feel book. He adores turning the pages too! I can't wait for him to be a little bigger to really understand the story.
We are very pleased to be hosting the official Dear Zoo online shop which has a gorgeous range of toys and gifts featuring Rod Campbell's easily recognised artwork from the original book.
