Today, Emmi and Paul are going to the zoo with Mum and Dad. Monkeys, elephants, giraffes, lions and many other animals live here. There is much to discover – and to hear!

The book contains the following scenes and sounds: The elephants play happily in the water. Emmi and Paul are amazed at how loudly they trumpet! Things are very busy at the primate house. Emmi waves at the monkeys and one of them waves back. What might it have to say? Emmi and Paul are excited about the sea lions’ tricks. Their calls are so cheerful! The peacock fans its rail really wide. Paul is fascinated. Doesn’t the peacock sound funny? The lion roars in farewell. Maybe it wants to say goodbye to Emmi and Paul.

The volume of the sounds is tailored to the sensitive hearing of small children. In addition, the sound function can be switched on and off at the back of the book. The book can be used straight away – it contains three button cells that are inaccessible for children and can only be exchanged with a Phillips screwdriver if required.

About the Series

There are five different sounds integrated into the books of this series. You can press the first button through a hole in the cover even before opening the book. Just turn on the battery with the switch on the back cover.

She transfers these observations strikingly into the stories in her picture books.
