So, a fun idea, but unfortunately, this book is dated and gender stereotyped. With books like this -- depicting all eight different animals as male -- no wonder kids go to the zoo and call every single animal "him" unless it is obviously nursing an infant. Sandra Boynton's books are a great alternative, and not so painfully and unnecessarily gendered. ( )

Our whole family loves this, but it's another kid's book where all the characters are male. Gotta change those pronouns up.

Young readers love lifting the flaps to discover the animals the zoo has sent-a monkey, a lion, and even an elephant! But will they ever find the perfect pet?

With it’s addictive simplicity, this lift-the-flap book covers animals, emotions, moods and much more, a perfect first book for your little one. ( )

Lift the flaps and see what the zoo has sent....in the end, the perfect pet. ( )
