I work with children in an after-school Literacy programme and we had read Dear Zoo with the children, although we placed it with a younger audience. I decided to buy it myself to read to my grandaughter and I also use it when I work in creche with under 4's. I have found it to be a handy little lift-the-flap book which the children enjoy. I purchased more of Rod Campbell's books, Oh Dear and most recent Buster's Birthday for the same reason I know that they hold the attention of the children. The phrasing is brief, children can interact with lifting up the flaps on each page and it builds on vocabulary as they learn words from the pictures under the flaps. I use them and others whenever I know there will be children present.
