In this story, Spot the curious little puppy is on an adventure. The pictures are simple and provide lift up flaps.

In my opinion, this is a good children’s book! I liked this book because of its format. The book is in question/answer format. On each page, Spots mother asks if Spot is in a specific place. “Is he in the box?” On the next page, you see a box with an answer inside. Not knowing what the answer is right away keeps the child engaged in reading it and excited to find out if Spot is there or not! Next, I liked this book because of the way it is organized/designed. On each page, there is a flap that you need to open in order to see if Spot is there or not. When you open or lift the flap up, an animal is there to tell you yes or no. For instance, when you look in the closet to see if Spot is there, there is a monkey hanging from the clothing bar saying “no”. The big idea in Where’s Spot is to keep the readers engaged and interested in reading the joyful story while journeying to find Spot! ( )

"Where's Spot?" is a cute lift the flap book with a mother dog, Sally, looking for her puppy, Spot. It's dinner time and Spot hasn't eaten. Where can he be? Is he under the stair, behind the door, in the piano, or somewhere else? Well, maybe not, but based on the animals Mama finds there, a zoo must be missing a lot of animals who have found cozy hideaways in Spot's house. ( )

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 ( )
