The Lovereading4Kids comment

A simple I-spy with die-cut holes so little ones can spy through the page and guess the animal. Dramatic bold illustrations focus on a single colour and each page also includes a helpful factual clue about the animal. This is a beautiful fun interactive gift book.

Nominated for 2011 CYBILS award (Children and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Award).

Synopsis

I Spy With My Little Eye by Edward Gibbs

Peek through the holes to spy who is looking out - is it the blue whale or the green frog? With simple clues about the hidden creatures, toddlers will quickly become engaged in the game while learning colours and animal facts along the way. It's interactive, it's educational, but ultimately it's great fun!

Reviews

“Children will surely press the book to their faces, squinting gleefully.” – Kirkus, starred review

“This clever book combines colour recognition, die cut peek-a-boo holes, animals, and a guessing game into a successful and appealing whole that will have young listeners asking for more.” – School Library Journal

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
