LoveReading View on Dear Zoo Book and Story Blocks

What is the perfect pet? The zoo keeps sending all kinds of animals but, lift the flap and readers will see they are too big, too tall, too jumpy, too grumpy or too scary. Sadly, each of them is returned. Finally, the zoo sends the perfect pet and everyone is happy! This book and blocks set comes in a box and includes a set of 10 sturdy giant blocks, each with an illustration taken from the book, to stack and play for hours of fun.  ~ Julia Eccleshare

Dear Zoo Book and Story Blocks Synopsis

Rod Campbell's classic lift-the-flap book Dear Zoo has been a firm favourite with toddlers and parents alike ever since it was first published in 1982.

With Dear Zoo Book and Story Blocks children can have fun reading the story as they build a giant metre-high tower with their animal blocks.

Dear Zoo Book and Story Blocks includes a mini gift hardback of the lift-the-flap preschool classic and ten stacking and nesting blocks featuring everyone's favourite animals from the zoo. Young children will love building a tower as they read the story -- and then knocking it down again!

Stacking and nesting help toddlers understand cause and effect and develop hand-eye coordination and early construction skills. They can learn to count from 1 to 10 as they play with the numbered blocks, and recognize different colours and sizes too. With bright, bold artwork and fun animal characters, Dear Zoo Book and Blocks is sure to keep toddlers entertained for hours!

And there are some special Dear Zoo 35 year Birthday Activity Sheets to download here.
