Dear Zoo {What We’re Reading}


This was one of the first books I bought Moo. Its slightly battered and bruised but its a firm favourite in our house and one I continually go back too.


Thor loves to point out the animals and lift the flaps. There is something lovely about a book that gets the children to interact. The little boy is now at the age where he he saying so much more, and this book is perfect for teaching him the animals.

Moo is at the stage where she knows what is behind each flap and recites it before me!


This is a book where we tend to just pull it out and read on the sofa.  This is why I love this book as its a good 10 minutes of fun anytime of day.

When I pulled this off the shelf, the little boy intently looked at it, pointing at the animals, telling me what each one was and was happy to sit there on his own and flick through.



This is such a well put together book and a book that you could not read for months and still enjoy it when you pull it back down from the shelf.

If you have been reading and want to share then please pop by Lucy (dear beautiful) Kelle (Maggie Stone) and Carrie (Space for Butterflies) and see what they have been reading and link up there!

    Would you believe that my kids don’t actually have this book? I used to read it all the time when I was teaching but haven’t got around to get my own children a copy. BAD MUMMY! Good job Christmas is on the way. x

    I’m afraid to say it’s one we don’t have either – oops. I think because it wasn’t part of my childhood library so it’s rather passed me by, but as Lucy says, Christmas is coming, the perfect time for Father Christmas to deliver a little something to Elma!
