About this item
A boy wants a pet, and so he writes to the zoo asking them to send him one. At first the zoo sends him an elephant, but the boy thinks it is too big, so he sends it back. Then the zoo sends him a giraffe, but the boy thinks it is too tall, so he sends it back as well. The zoo continues to send potential gifts to the boy, but the boy finds fault with each of them. Will the zoo ever send the perfect house pet for a little boy? Readers can participate in the story by lifting the flaps to open the various packages from the zoo.

Initially I was surprised about the type of message this book implicates, but then I am reminded it's just a baby book. I think my daughter will enjoy being able to say what each animal is as she opens the flaps for each animal.
All my kids love this book

I have 4 children and they all loved this book. They do have to be careful when peeking at the animal but its worth it for the fun factor. My children are getting to old for this but I still buy it for a baby gifts.
