This is an interactive book that asks the reader to describe/identify what they 'spy' at the zoo.
This is good for developing observation & vocabulary skills, game play ("complete the sentences"), animal identification, and introducing diversity.

Buy. This book will be a favorite as toddler grows and has long-term value for exploration.
S/He enjoys the colorful & busy zoo scenes. S/he tries to identify the animals and points at different people in the pictures, especially the babies.
The colorful, busy illustrations give children plenty of things to look for, look at and describe. There are things parents can point out, too. A potentially good 'read to myself' book.
Colorful, busy illustrations provide children with many things to look at and describe. There is something new to 'spy' with every reading. You can be as leading or as laid back as you want.
The paper pages are not conducive to young toddler hands. Its construction, not its content make it better suited to older children.
