In this collection of modern art pieces, the reader is asked to spot different shapes from within the image.
This is a book where everyone can enjoy something, whether you want to just interact with your child, or whether you want to sit back and enjoy the art work.
None, unless you really don't like Andy Warhol and modern art.
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 …"
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.
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.
