Little Kid Reaction

Our preschooler ran over to select this one from the display at the library. Once home, it kept her engaged for quite a while, even when we weren't asking "I spy with my little eye …"

Big Kid Reaction

The answers aren't always easy to find, though our preschooler had few problems. We had lots of fun, as we all took turns asking "I spy" questions that weren't printed in the book.

Type of Book:
This is a book that blends learning shape with appreciating art.

Aside from helping kids affirm their knowledge of shapes, you can expand their ability to discern objects hidden/partially hidden, and introduce them to art.
