Dear Zoo iPad app
Ooh, I do love it when a classic children’s book is given an iPad makeover. Dear Zoo was one of Alfie’s favourite reads when he was small and now Rod Campbell’s timeless tale of unsuitable animal gifting is going all interactive on us.
Your little one can choose to either read the story or have it read to them by Caroline Quentin, and each picture gives you the opportunity to open a crate, reveal the creature inside and hear it roar/trumpet/hiss. You can then send it back to the zoo.
There is also a matching pairs memory game at the end – perennially popular with toddlers. £2.99, the App Store.
