Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dear Zoo: A Lift-the-Flap Book by Rod Campbell This story is a fun introduction to animals and their characteristics. It is written in the first person, with repetitive sentences. The nature of repetitiveness enables young readers to predict and engage with the story. This book is a brilliant read for beginners as it consists of basic words which beginners are familiar with, and the use ‘lift the flap’ encourages the children to guess what is beneath the flap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little book This is a great lift the flap book for little ones! It has nice repetitive text that encourages participation as baby gets older. I like how some of the flaps are quite small to encourage little hands to work on their dexterity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the Purchase. This interactive book is great for kiddos 9-months and older. They love it when you make the animal sound after they open the flap. I only wish they still made the version with the higher quality cover...it was almost padded. That said, the price is cheaper for this version, and kids are just as likely to tear the flaps in the higher quality version :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best lift-the-flaps This is one of the best lift-the-flap board books! Each flap is a bit different which is nice (one even has two flaps to open to reveal the animal). I like that it's a variety of animals, not just farm ones as is typical for lift-the-flap books.
