Chockablock "search" pictures and cheerful rhymes promote concentration and language skills.
Like its companion book, I Spy 123, this colourful search book is hiding a cornucopia of toys, sweets, foods, wooden beads, dolls, natural items and much more, all hidden within a letter. Searching while learning the alphabet - as well as colours, counting, vocabulary, memory and attention - is a fun experience of surprise and achievement.
On each letter page are short rhyming verses setting the reader's task to find specific items and providing hints of where those might be found. But of course, there are hundreds more items which are not hinted at, so the challenge and fun are endless.
The answers to the rhymes - where is the item mentioned? - are at the back of the book. This is a great book for sharing, alone time and bedtime.
