1001 Things to Spot in the Town
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
Nobody's written a review on this yet? This book is AWESOME! This whole series is probably my favorite book series for 2 to 5 year olds. If you ever are looking for a gift for that age, get any book out of this 1001 Things to Spot series. This book has page after page of cute and clever Christmas pictures. I like these more than the I Spy books because reading is not necessary to still enjoy these! My 2 year olds can simply match the pictures on the edges of the pages and find the hidden matching item in the picture. FANTASTIC TRAVEL books! My (reading) kids need to find every one of the items pictured, and it challenges them just at the right level - they do not get overwhelmed(which they frequently do in other similar search books). They also learn little educational things without even realizing it! Once you've bought one book in this series, you'll be excited to purchase more! I don't think I can recommend one more than another! Pick a subject your kid likes already and enjoy!
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 :)
