Reviews for Spot It! : Find the Hidden Creatures


School Library Journal Reviews 2009 August

PreS-Gr 1--Originally published in France, this rounded-corner volume employs op-art designs to hide 15 creatures, and a farm girl, for viewers to find. The searches vary in difficulty. Although the majority are easily located, the small sea urchin's eyes are barely visible, making that particular hunt a challenge. The bright patterns vary from packed geometrics to a gathering of flowers, mushrooms, or trees. The final full spread is a traditional night landscape of silhouettes among trees, from which readers are asked to discern which of the previously found animals is now missing. Youngest fans of Martin Handford's "Where's Waldo?" (Candlewick), Jean Marzollo's "I Spy" series, (Scholastic), or Joan Steiner's "Look-Alikes" (Little, Brown) should enjoy the simple task of finding one thing per page. Great for one-on-one lap sharing.--Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
