Can you create your own 'lift the flap' page to add to the story?
Draw a picture of an animal and stick the flap over the top (gluing across the top of the paper only)
Use the pattern from the story to create your own sentence.
'I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet. They sent me an ........ He was too ....... so I sent him back.'
To make it simpler, you could write some short clues underneath and get your grown ups to guess what animal you have drawn. For example for a crocodile...
'He has sharp teeth'
'He is green'
'He has a long tail'
Can you make your own Dear Zoo book? Could you use your imagination and change the title e.g. Dear Farm, Dear Underwater?
