I Spy With My Little Eye: 03/04/15

As many of the other reviews of I Spy With My Little Eye by Edward Gibbs note, I Spy remains a popular game and a popular type of book. Add in dye cut circles through the cover and pages, and I knew the book would be a hit with my daughter.

I Spy With My Little Eye with the bold, bright, in your face frog on the cover, states up front what this book is all about. It's a color concept book that also teaches older children a little something about each brightly colored animal revealed first through the I spy circle and then with a turn of the page.

The book was an instant hit with my daughter. She read it to herself numerous times and then read to me. The ending, though, was an unexpected and welcome surprise. The dye cut goes all the way through to the back cover, thus inviting children to spy their own animals.

Four stars
