Where’s Spot?
By Eric Hill (2003)

I liked Where’s Spot by Eric Hill for four reasons. First, I liked the flaps throughout the book. Specifically, the flaps keep readers engaged. Children love to open the flaps in the book. It is almost like peek-a-boo. Second, I liked the big, black font displayed in the book. The font appeals to young children, is legible, and affective for beginning readers. Third, I liked how Eric Hill, through his writing, interacts with his readers. For example, he asks questions like, “Is he behind the door?” Thus, Hill gives his readers the ability to respond, and to be curious. Lastly, I liked how other animals are introduced within the book. By exposing beginning readers to photos of animals, they will begin to recognize these animals in real-life situations. Overall, the “big idea” of Where’s Spot is to emphasize the significance of interactive texts. Readers can participate throughout the playful story, and enjoy its humor as well. ( )

This is a cute, preschool aged book about a mother searching for her son, Spot. As the mother dog searches, the reader gets to lift flaps to help find Spot. Very cute and interactive and great for preschoolers ( )

We sort of just got this one to know what all the fuss was about. The classic lift-the-flap book! It will surely be a hit with your infant. ( )

I've read this book more times than I can count with my children. I honestly don't remember when the first time was. ( )

Cute book for children and second language learners (though I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit that somehow I still didn't know the word السجادة -- carpet). ( )
