Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell
Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books
Young children will love lifting the flaps to discover the animals the zoo has sent - a monkey, a lion and even an elephant! But will they ever manage to send the perfect pet?
The size descriptions in this book give children the opportunity to discuss concepts such as height and weight, including why the child in the story might not want a heavy pet such as an elephant! The animals in this story are in a variety of different sizes of container, which lends itself to a discussion of what size of animal would fit into
