Win!!! A New Children’s Book: Dear Zoo Spin and Say by Rod Campbell

WIN!!!  A wonderful addition to your children’s bookcase with this Tidy Book’s book review and competition post. You can win your child a copy of Rod Cambell’s brand new book, Dear Zoo Spin and Say.  A book based on the incredibly successful and original Dear Zoo. We have 3 brand new copies to giveaway!!

Dear Zoo Spin and Say

From the best-selling children’s author, Rod Campbell, comes this brand new interactive children’s  book.   We’re back at the zoo the author previously made famous and this time we aren’t looking for a pet, this time we are looking to learn.

The original Dear Zoo picture book has sold over 5 million copies and will be familiar to many children and families.  It tells a story of how a child keeps sending animals back to the zoo before they settle on the perfect pet.  It’s a flap book that has kept many millions of children entertained.

This book is a follow on from Dear Zoo, and again is an interactive book for pre-readers to get stuck in to.  It’s a ‘Spin and Say’ book where many of the original Dear Zoo’s characters return and feature against two spinners.

The book asks questions like ‘How many?’ and ‘What are we called?’ and the children can dial the spinners around to the right answers.

All you need to do to enter is give to tell us what animal you think would make the perfect pet?

But before you give yourself a great chance of winning a copy of the book have a read of what we made of Dear Zoo Spin and Say.
A much loved copy of the original Dear Zoo!


I didn’t have to look far to find our much cherished copy of Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell.  It was neatly archived amongst all the other pre-reader books that we can’t bear to be parted with.  And was very prominent – like all books are – on our Tidy Books bookcase when my son was learning to get to grips with reading.

He loved the interactive flaps of the original book, which were fairly sturdy, but were well worn as I’m sure that are in the other 5 million copies in existence.  This book, Dear Zoo Spin and Say has been made with two very sturdy spinners.  Which I’m sure would be even better prepared to stand the long term handling of young and soft, but unforgiving, hands.

Knowing the Dear Zoo story helps with this book, and it probably works best as an accompaniment rather than as a stand alone children’s book.  The text and illustrations are still charming, and the book encourages children to interact with them, as well as perhaps prompting the reader to think a little more of pets and animals away from the book.

We have hundreds of books that we read in the pre-reader era, but I don’t recall one that featured a spinner so well.  Whether it is you turning the spinner to ask the child a question, or the child turning the spinner to answer another or ask one of their own, it works terrifically.

Helen is an early years foundation stage leader. She’s responsible for the education of over 150 three to six year-olds. Helen has over a decade’s experience in early years learning, and this is what she thinks of Dear Zoo Spin and Say by Rod Campbell.

“If you are familiar with Dear Zoo, which quite frankly who isn’t, then you’ll understand and be intrigued by this book straight away”

“The dials give it a certain something extra, another way to get a child to engage with concepts and learning words enjoyably”

“Some of the pages and questions would work very well with one-on-one reading, like when there’s a lot of animals and information on the page when asking How many?  But there are others that bode well if you were addressing a group or a class on a topic.  It would be perfect for pets where the book not only encourages children to identify animals but to also come up with names for them.”

“The use of repetition in the book is great, as our the opportunities it gives children to learn about practising alliteration and rhyming words.”

So that’s what we made of Dear Zoo Spin and Say and we have three copies of it to giveaway.

To be in with a chance to win a copy, simply leave a comment telling us what animal you think would make the perfect pet?  Don’t worry, we won’t be sending you one with the book!

    An elephant – now ok I wouldnt be able to keep it indoors, but with a huge garden he could stay out there, he’d be a great security guard (I mean who would want to think about breaking in with an elephant at the door), the kids could ride him to school, and I love elephants and collect ornaments but lets be honest, having a real one for the collection would be pretty impressive! (and he could eat all the half eaten apples the kids throw around the garden)

    I’m split. I love dogs, my rottie x staff is the best little girl anyone could ask for – friendly, well behaved, amazing with the kids and loves cuddles. But I also miss having my horse. There’s nothing more thrilling and relaxing at the same time than galloping through the fields at one with your steed.
    My daughter wants another puppy, so maybe I should go with her choice 😉

  104. Avatar S says:

    No pets are perfect, they all need the proper care and attention. Most animals should be left in the wild, we humans are ruining species by domesticating them. It’s fine to protect animals but do less harm to their environment, let them live as they should. How would you like being stuck in a cage all day? For example, hamsters in the wild roam up to 10 miles at night, their burrows are up to ten metres deep and they are not sociable creatures. Yes they are cute to look at and may seem happy but they are bred in captivity to be given to small children who then wonder why they get bitten. Please consider carefully before buying pets.

    I think a Goldfish is an ideal pet as it is easy to look after, entertaining to watch, but also a good way of introducing responsibility into a child’s life, by having them to ‘look after it,’ feeding it each day etc.

    My teenage daughter thinks a micro pig would make the perfect pet – unfortunately she’s not getting the chance to find out. Our gorgeous perfect pet cat, Millie and the two bearded dragons, Bob and Phyllis will have to do.

  199. Avatar Amreen akhtar says:

    A elephant would be the perfect pet as very hard to miss , and very rare for anyone to keep, also a good ride for the little one :P,

  220. Avatar D J FREEMAN says:

    A parrot…instead of talking to myself i can have a chat with him! ha

  221. Avatar jemma webster says:

    A monkey – it would keep my current little monkey good company and stop him from climbing all over poor Mummy!!!

  222. Avatar Clare Jones says:

    The perfect pet is a worm! They are small and useful! (Plus they don’t bite) lol

  223. Avatar Laura Bond says:

  226. Avatar Angela W says:

    A puppy dog

  227. Avatar Victoria Veninga says:

    A bright yellow fluffy chick – perfect for keeping your hands warm and easy to spot on a dark evening

  228. Avatar Katrina La Rose says:

    I had a miniature Julianna/pot belly pig named Piggie Smalls, The Notorious P.I.G. He was the best pet ever! More complicated to train and own than a dog (common misconception), but filled my childless days! Once I got pregnant and realized I wouldn’t have the time to dedicate to his constant training anymore I found him a home on a pig rescue farm owned and operated by a pig vet. He became their mascot and got to sleep in the house with their two small dogs! I get updates and pictures periodically… That is one animal I would totally love to own again. I’ve often dreamed of having a farm with miniature animals- lol!

  229. Avatar Lorraine says:

    Cats definitely make the best pets!

  230. Avatar marina frow says:

    Cats of course, loyal, easy maintenance and a purr is the most relaxing noise on earth!

  231. Avatar Summer mobley says:

    My daughter would love to have an alligator for a pet. We might have to have all its teeth pulled first though.

    I’ve always wanted a Guinea Pig – they are so cute. Might have to get one "for the kids".

  234. Avatar Amie says:

    The perfect pet for us would be a monkey as it would get on so well with a the cheeky children we have at our house 🙂 thanks for the giveaway.

  235. Avatar Hazel Hulson says:

    Love giraffes for their grace and beauty, but need plenty of space and high ceilings x

  236. Avatar Tiffiny Acquin says:

    A monkey they are so stinkin cute.

  237. Avatar Kathryn S says:

    According to my brother….a koala bear!! He pranked us with some sort of app and the caller said we would have a koala bear delivered to our house! Thought it was some weirdo calling!

  238. Avatar alan forrest says:

  240. Avatar Kat Emerick says:

  241. Avatar Jenna says:

    A cat! We just adopted one for my daughter and he’s perfect!!

  242. Avatar Paula Harvey says:

    A Goldfish!! They are pretty easy to look after – dont have to take them for walks in the rain/hail/snow and there’s not a poopascoop in sight!! 🙂

  243. Avatar Stephanie says:

    i think a meerkat would make a cute pet.

  244. Avatar elizabeth miller says:

    I would have to say a monkey would be the perfect pet. They are so human like and the movie monkey business made me want one years and years ago.

  245. Avatar Kirsten Barthy says:

    a Koala AS they are so gute and cuddly

  246. Avatar Caroline Jones says:

    I’d like a phoenix.

  247. Avatar Marcia Pedro says:

  250. Avatar sharon smith says:

  251. I’d love a hippo – not the most practical of pets of course 😉

  252. Avatar Ani Costa says:

    I think elephants would make the perfect pets..they can give you a lift to wherever&back!

  253. Avatar Kirsty tower says:

    A monkey! They are amazing to watch and so clever! My boys are climbers, it would fit in well!!

  254. Avatar rivig says:

    I think best pet is a teddy bear. AlWays ready to play what ever game you want when you want. Excellent for picnics and tea parties. Easily cleaned they get mucky. And can be anything that child wants. Cuddly friendly and never days No.

  255. Avatar shelley says:

    we have a cat but my son thinks the perfect pet would be a dog as you can run around in the park with them and that way he would have someone to play with when there aren’t any other kids about

  256. Avatar Tanja Hellebrandt says:

    The best pet ever was my little rabbit Hardy. And if my little daughter becomes a bit older we will have a little rabbit again :-)!!!

  257. Avatar Linz Wileman says:

    I’d like a monkey as they’ve got the right mix of cuteness and cheekiness. There’s already 4 little monkeys in my house so one more wont make much difference 🙂

  258. Avatar D J FREEMAN says:

    A Gorilla….i love them..i could teach him to do the dishes and the ironing!!

  259. Avatar Addison Kat says:

    We love our dogs! Although I think a sloth would be kind of neat

  260. Avatar Jemma Steel says:

    I think my 3 year old would choose a spider or snake if he had his way! I think I’ll stick with my dog.

  261. Avatar Jane Adams says:

    A poodle. He would be ‘pawfect’ an I wouldn’t send him back.

  262. Avatar Katherine De Riera says:

    A monkey 🙂 because they are so cheeky!

  263. Avatar stacy Gibson says:

    Definitely a Hippo! my daughter 2 years old is fascinated by them, she loves having baths as well so they could splash around together and there big and cuddly so they could fall asleep together at bedtime.

  264. Hmmm… I think a long-neck dinosaur would be pretty fun. My son has been on a Land Before Time kick lately, so I know he’d think Little Foot would make the perfect pet! lol 😉

  265. Avatar Dani says:

    I would love a micro pig

  266. Avatar Becca hughes says:

    A miniature pony would be so cute, my 3 year old grand daughter would be the perfect size to ride one and would prefer it to her pushchair!

  267. Avatar emily says:

    i would like a little white fluffy kitten, but my mummy is allergic to cats and dogs

  268. Avatar Anna Rowan says:

    We found a cute little echidna in our back yard today and both kids and ourselves wanted the only thing – to keep it!:) What a cute pet it would have been:)

  269. Avatar sarah mortimore says:
