I bought the book as a treat to the children in the nursery where I work as they like the original one. I know young children enjoy interactive book but it got torn off by the toddlers. I think the one with the sound would be more popular. I read the reviews before I bought the book, I am pleased that the book arrived earlier than the stated schedule and in excellent condition.
The size of this book is larger than the original one. So it is much better to be used in a small group setting (up to eight so each child can have his/her turn). I read the book today with a group of children from 2 to 4 years old. They were eager to listen to me reading the book and let them guess, open the flaps and press the buttons for the sound.
I got it in a cheaper deal and I consider it a good investment.
Some people may think it is wrong for the author to use 'He' only for all the animals. Except the lion with the mane, all the other animals can be male or female. I can use either 'It' or 'She'. If I read the book only to older children, I can also ask them to describe the appearance of each animal, what do they eat, where do they live in the wild... I think the book is helpful in promoting reading to young children before they become addicted to tablets. or mobile phones.
Thoroughly disappointed by the product and I never would have ordered if it was clear. Totally waste.

We are taking her to Twycross Zoo and wanted to give her a keepsake and so bought this along with a soft monkey. The book has lovely big easy to read text and then a picture of the animal behind a folding card, so you can play hide and seek. There is an indication of what picture of animal to press to get the sound.
The sounds are quite realistic and great fun for us all to make!
At the back are some easy and fun things to do:
It reads 'Press the animal who is: Too naughty! what's he called?' hopefully the user will press the monkey sound.
We also have the farm book and will be looking to get more.
