Continuing our 'sneak peak' into some great kids books, that would be wonderful Christmas gift ideas,
we have an interactive fun book!


There's trouble at the zoo today The animals have run away! The animals are everywhere! Look very carefully as you help the zookeeper count and spot all the zoo runaways in this great animal escape. A bright and busy book to keep you searching, spotting, reading and counting together again and again!


Miss Grace and I adored this book! She LOVES seek n find's of all kinds, and this one was fun, as there were so many thinks to find! For younger kids it is also a great counting exercise. For Miss Grace at age 7, it was an easy read for her, and the hunt to see what else to find was most of the fun! I would put the correct age of preschool through first grade, for best enjoyment of this book. It is a fun way to teach counting to younger kids, while older kids will delight in finding the hidden questions and the roaming tortoise on every page!  It is a lovely interactive book, perfect for family reading time, and it would be a lovely Christmas gift for the child who adores animals!
