My ten year old son introduced me to this fun little book (OK, It's big, but thin.), which he has been looking at for several years now. It has fourteen, two-page sized pictures of a collection of odds and ends connected with school. At the bottom of each of them is a list of things that you can look for (sort of like, Where is Waldo). But, read through to the end, there is a riddle about someone you'll find in each of the pictures. This is a fun book. It challenges the young reader to concentrate on what is actually on the page, and pick out certain select items. I like that my son reads it for fun, even as the book is teaching him to concentrate and search systematically. He loves this book, and so do I. We both highly recommend this book to you.
This a truly wonderful book of childhood - ideal for the fireside and child on the knee enjoying the beautiful illustrations whilst competing to spot the items in the rhymes. My two especially enjoyed another book in the series "I Spy Christmas" which has become part of the Build-up of the Xmas season in our house.
I love these books, they have remained incredibly popular with the little ones, providing hours of amusement and fun, who pick up even the smallest of items eventually, which in some cases are suprisingly well hidden.
