AN EXCITING NEW WAY TO SHARE THE CLASSIC STORY!

Open the crates from the zoo and find a TALL giraffe, a very FIERCE lion, an extremely NAUGHTY monkey – and much more! Call out the animal names and noises, and discover the touch-activated animations. Fun for all the family, this app is perfect for cuddling up with and sharing again and again. What will the zoo send you?

THE CLASSIC DEAR ZOO STORY, PLUS:

  • Lively animation that responds to your child’s touch.
  • Two ways to enjoy the app: “Read the book” or “Read to me”.
  • “Read to me” audio narrated by the award-winning actress Caroline Quentin.
  • Simple, accessible and suitable for even the littlest iPad user.
  • New artwork, drawn especially by Rod Campbell.
  • Background audio and music.
  • Picking Pairs game: simple, educational and fun!
  • Clear and straightforward instructions.

HINTS, TIPS AND THINGS TO TRY:

  • Suitable for children aged 18 months and up.
  • Tap the arrows to move forwards and backwards to your favourite animal.
  • Tap the crates to open them.
  • Tap the animals to enlarge them, or wait for the auto-play.
  • Stroke, swipe or tap to discover the interactive animations. Swing around with the monkey, or have a go at trying to catch the frog!
  • Is the lion TOO fierce? Don’t worry! A swift tap returns the animal to its crate and sends it safely back to the zoo.


PRAISE FOR THE CLASSIC DEAR ZOO BOARD BOOK:

A Mumsnet Best Children’s Book (2011)

“A wonderful book. I read this to both my children as babies and they absolutely loved it! It was the first book where they really worked out that there were things behind the flaps and they were always keen to try and open the doors and see the animals. All Rod Campbell books are great and a must have on any child’s bookshelf.” - Mumsnet reader review

“A classic for the under fives.”
- Daily Telegraph

“A classic hide-and-seek story. A great book for teaching children about animals.”
- Mother & Baby

“Kids gain endless delight from lifting the flaps to see the animal, and rare is the household where this book doesn’t become an instant hit and long-time favourite.”
- Independent
