In 1982 Rod Campbell published one of the most loved children’s books of our time, Dear Zoo. A simple yet, engaging story about a child who asks the zoo to send them a pet, but it takes a little while to get the right one. Since it was first published, it has gone on to sell over 8 million copies worldwide and it has since been a favourite through the generations. Due to Dear Zoos popularity, there are many different toys, books and games for you to add to your Dear Zoo collection. This includes the Dear Zoo Board Books – My First little bag of Books, which RRP at £15.99. I am giving my readers the chance to win one set of these lovely little board books!

  2. No plans as this is the first time I’ve heard of it – the books are great though so this looks really interesting!

  3. I would love to go see dear zoo live. Not sur my daughter would sit still long enough for it but even so I am sure it will be a great experience for her.

  4. I’d love to be able to take my 18 month old granddaughter. When she is entranced she sits still. She loves Dear Zoo!

  5. I’d love to take my four little ones to a real zoo, maybe one day, ill health prevents me driving at the moment

  6. My son would have loved to see Dear Zoo Live but it’s on near us just a couple of days after I’ll have given birth

  7. No plans at the moment as we seem to be catching everything that’s going around at the minute. But would love to take my girls.
