Highly Commended Best Story App 2012: Dear Zoo
The classic children's lift-the-flap picture book Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell gets super interactive for a new generation of babies
Retaining the charm and simplicity of Dear Zoo, the classic lift-the-flap book by Rod Campbell that makes it into the Top Ten of our Top 100 Children's Books of All Time, modern toddlers now get to tap to lift instead! A succession of creatures noisily come to life (beware: some babies might be startled by the lion’s roar), but how lovely to be able to play catch with the perfect puppy in the grand finale! There’s a fun matching pairs game, too, where your child can match pictures, or pictures and words. A truly delightful addition to a well-loved format that has delighted a generation of babies and toddlers (and now has a nostalgic resonance for today's newest parents who may have read the original version when it was first published in 1982!).
Dear Zoo app £1.99.
