Coming from a nursery nurse background there are a handful of books that was firm favorites along the children. I know myself both of my children have loved the Dear Zoo book ( so much that two copies was extremely well loved they fell apart).
Rod Campbell's Dear Zoo and friends website is new and full of exciting things to do this summer. From educational games, fun activities and guidance for parents. There are also some cheeky giveaways on there too where you could win £250 worth of Dear Zoo goodies.
There are two games on the website, a great match pairs one, which you match the right animals to a make a pair. Then a noisy farm game which you can match the sounds to the animals. The activities have different levels of play. So you can make it as hard or easy as you like.
On the site there are a huge amount of print out sheets to make and do, from colouring, dot to dot and rhyme sheets. Perfect for little activities thought out the summer holidays to keep little hands busy and brains active.
Maybe even take a trip down to the library to check out the Dear Zoo Book this Summer.
