Blue Orange is your friend. I recommend a look at Froggy Boogie.

Looks great. The animals seem to be quite similar to Animal on Animal. So maybe we will construct our own versin.

If you like Animal Upon Animal perhaps you might like Mighty Mice.

Works great with 4 yr olds, nice chunky wooden pieces, and fun for adults. Also plays up to 6 players.

Having seen so much differences in what children are able to play at the age of 4, I want to suggest 2 games with different levels of "complexity".

A game collection with really beautiful high quality wooden components is Mein erster Spieleschatz from Haba. It contains several really easy games, suitable also for kids totally unexperienced in board games.

For kids with a bit of gaming experience, I totally can suggest the "Kinderspiel des Jahres 2016", which is My First Stone Age (Stone Age Junior). Officially, it's for the age of 5, but the BGG-community voted 4 and I also have played it with a 4 years old and it worked quite well (but it was a child with some gaming experience). It's interesting enough to also be appealing to kids who are a bit older and the components are really great!

Pengoloo

My 3 year old loves this memory game. There are wooden penguins that sit on top of (completely covering) wooden egg. On each turn you roll two dice. The dice will show you what color you need to find. You get to look under two penguins to see if you got the right color. If you did you get to put that penguin in front of you. You get two guesses a turn.

There is some strategy my 3-year old is a touch too young for. If you get them both right you get to go again. Let's say you know the remaining penguins are sitting on a red egg, a green egg, and an orange egg. You rolled a blue and a purple. If you remember which penguins are already taken that were blue and purple you can still look at them (but you don't get to take them). Assuming you were right you can roll again and try see if you can roll a color you need.

The components are very nice.

(This is a Blue Orange game, I think, which one poster already mentioned they make games with good quality wooden components).
