With lots to see and heaps to do, in Busy Zoo children can join in by pushing, pulling and turning the tabs to meet the animals!
Make the giraffes’ heads pop out of the trees, spray the baby elephant with water, watch the monkey acrobatics and feed the penguins. Children will love playing with this bright and colourful board book with gentle rhyming text and wonderful illustrations by Rebecca Finn.

What our experts think
It’s really important to get children interested in books at a young age. Busy Zoo encourages this with interactive tabs and questions to answer on each page, which keep children’s attention, make reading fun and test their comprehension of the story. The push, pull and slide tabs help little ones develop their fine motor control.
