My 2 year old loves this book, it's bright and bold with big flaps for little hands to lift and thick pages to turn. The text is simple enough for him to have started to join in when I read it. He loved finding all the animas, the shark is his favourite closely followed by the tiger because it means he gets to practice his Roar.

This adorable book soon became one of our 2 year old daughters favourite books, she repeatedly now brings it to me for another read, makes the animal sounds and replies to the questions before you even have a chance to read what's underneath the flap.

Brilliant book.  My girl will be 1 in april and she loved the flapd and being able to be involved instead of using it as a teether. She loves animals too so even more enjoyable for her. Short story but good read for a quick story during playtime

Great little book with different animals living in different climates and parts of the world! The flaps are easily lifted with little fingers. The mirrors in the book were a big hit.

I also liked the questions within the book, making it more interactive for parent and child. Great book!!

My one year old really loves this book. The illustrations are different so stand out for him. He loves lifting the flaps and discovering the animals' homes. He keeps picking this book out for me to read out to him and that's fine as I enjoy it too!

This book was amazing and 3 year old son absolutely loved opening the flaps to reveal the aninals.he has got a favourite in this one already and has been looking at it few times one after another.
Is great for any children who love animals.
Really eye catching pictures throughout the book too and really would make a lovely gift :)
Easy to for lil ones to hold and turn the pages themselves and lil one loves too do that himself and show me who is behind the flaps.
100% recommended :)

Brought this for my niece who is 2 and a half and it was the Best Buy. It has wonderful illustrations of the animals and where they live. She enjoys guessing and lifting the flaps
Up to see if she is correct. She has carried this book around for weeks and is now starting to make animals noises to give people clues which animal lives where. A good book I’d recommend for toddlers

This is a lovely book for toddlers to enjoy. It has lovely chunky pages and gorgeous illustrations, which look to have been made from recycled materials; they are really cute. The pages have big (page sized) flaps to lift, so no worries about pages getting torn while they are new. My toddler enjoyed recognising the animals and finding out about where they live. She now joins in with the simple text and will pick up the book and 'read' it herself.

This is a gorgeous lift-the-flap board book about animals and their homes. There's a monkey in the jungle, a mountain bear, a tiger in the savannah, a polar bear, and a shark swimming among the coral. The flaps are larger than in most lift-the-flap books and when you lift the flap a full third page opens up. The pages invite you to guess who might live in each habitat and I really like how before you lift the flap to find out there's a subtle hint: a furry arm clutching a banana or a fin poking out from behind the coral. 

The images are really original. In place of illustrations, Tracey Radford has used craft materials to create 3D scenes which have then been photographed. There's cotton wool snow in the Arctic, car sponge coral reefs and papier-mâché caves. She's also made particularly creative use of egg cartons ! I can imagine children being inspired to recreate these model scenes themselves - it's certainly something I'd like to do with my son when he's older.

This is a lovely, colourful book which will engage and entertain young children while teaching them about the world they live in.

I was very surprised that my 2-year-old did not like this book very much.  It has lift-the-flaps and is about animals - two of her favourite things but yet she didn't find it very appealing.  I think it might be more suitable for a younger child (she is 2.5). It's five pages and on each page there is a large flap to lift that takes up most of one page. Perhaps it's because there wasn't much of a challenge to it - you don't have to find the flap on each page that she didn't find it very appealing. The illustrations are very sweet and feature some of her favourite animals. Perhaps it's because at about this age they are ready to move on to something new. A lovely book for younger children.
