My son loves this book, especially spotting Goldbug on the pages. Can anyone please recommend any similar books that involve spotting objects on the pages? I have looked at other Richard Scarry books but I can't tell if any of them have a similar 'let's find' theme. My son is almost 4.

Hi, I love Richard Scarry's 'What Do People Do All Day' so introduced this to my then 4 year old for the intricate illustrations of people going about their daily business from working on a Cruise liner to digging the roads. It was only after a while that we noticed one character - 'Lowly Worm' (a worm wearing a bobble hat and a sock!)cropping up on many pages in different scenarios, which made it great fun trying to seek him out. Hope this helps - we still love it and my son's just turned 7!

My son loves all Richard Scarry books too! He also has some Usborne Young Puzzle books (Puzzle Pirate, Puzzle Castles, Puzzle School etc)....they all have problems to solve including spotting things on most pages...however, it might be more suitable for 5 or 6 yr old, depending on the child, as the child needs to read the instructions. I guess if you are reading it with him together, it might be ok.

A brilliant book for spotting things is '10 minutes to Bedtime' . In the book a little boy is going to bed when suddenly all these hamsters appear. There is a family with 10 children. Each has a number on their backs. On each page there is a different minute to go and more and more hamsters appear. There is loads to spot and each time we read it, we seem to find bits we've missed, even though we have read it MANY times. There is very few words in the book and it is very much a discussion book. Another great discussion book is 'You Choose'. On each page you choose where you would like to live, what pet you would like, who would be your friend etc. There is loads of detail on each page and the illustrations are by Nick Sharratt. It's briiliant.

My daughter used to love the Richard Scarry books when she was a child. Her favourite was a book with about four segments to each page, you could mix the pages up and she used to have hours of fun changing the characters etc. Unfortunately I cannot remember the Title. She now has a young son and we are trying to source this particular book. We are able to find many Richard Scarry books but not this particular one. Does anyone have any suggestions please.
