Synopsis

Rod Campbell's preschool classic Dear Zoo has been a firm favourite with toddlers and parents alike ever since it was first published in 1982. Very young fans will love this brilliant early learning spinner book.

Dear Zoo Spin and Say is a unique board book, which features two spinners inside. It is perfect for teaching simple concepts and first words, including numbers and colours. The sturdy pages are packed with everyone's favourite animal friends from Dear Zoo, as well as new wild animals and pets, and there's a different question on every spread. How many? Who's that animal? What colour? Simply spin the wheel, point and say!

In the media

One of little man's first book was Dear Zoo, a bestseller that has delighted generations of toddlers, I had to read it for him nearly every night for a few months. He still likes Dear Zoo, so he was happy to see the new Dear Zoo Spin and Say.

In Dear Zoo Spin and Say the fun element are two spinners which can be used to help teach simple concepts, first words, numbers, different types of animals etc . . . It was a fun book to share.

WHAT THE PARENT THOUGHT:
The text and illustrations are still charming, and the book encourages children to interact with them, as well as perhaps prompting the reader to think a little more of pets and animals away from the book.
We have hundreds of books that we read in the pre-reader era, but I don't recall one that featured a spinner so well. Whether it is you turning the spinner to ask the child a question, or the child turning the spinner to answer another or ask one of their own, it works terrifically.
WHAT THE TEACHER THOUGHT
If you are familiar with Dear Zoo, which quite frankly who isn't, then you'll understand and be intrigued by this book straight away. The dials give it a certain something extra, another way to get a child to engage with concepts and learning words enjoyably...The use of repetition in the book is great, as are the opportunities it gives children to learn about practising alliteration and rhyming words.
