1001 Animals to Spot
Category Description for 1001 Things to Spot
If your kids are anything like we were, they love the "Whereís Waldo?" or "For Eagle Eyes Only" type of puzzle books. These books each offer over a dozen different colorful scenes (each on a two-page spread) with different things for children to find. The objects to find are shown around the edges of the page. For example, in 1001 Things to Spot Long Ago, one of the scenes is of the Pharaohís court. Kids are asked to find 10 beaded collars, 9 white fans, 2 pairs of red sandals, 3 stools, 10 wine jars, 4 monkeys, 1 harp, 3 patterned rugs, 10 bracelets, and 2 chests. In total, each book contains 1001 things for kids to find. - Melissa
We have loved this book! My 4 year old loves to look for the animals and it was a great way to get her to count too. I really appreciate that they aren't all typical animals either. I have learned the names and habitats of some unique animals right alongside of my daughter.
These spotting books are the best. They keep my five year old busy for awhile. She has liked them ever since she was about three and still loves them. It's a fun way to cuddle up next to your children and have something to do.
My son loves this book! I purchased the Farm book a couple months ago and at that time, I wasn't sure how he would do with it. It has helped his counting immensely (he's 4) and he loves looking for the pictures. He's such a busybody and books don't usually keep his attention for very long. But this one is different. Looking forward to adding some of the other "1001" titles to our collection :)
