This is a colorful picture book of a spring and science theme. A young boy is taking a walk on a beautiful spring day and as he happens upon each new habitat he wonders who is spying on him. However, on every other page is a foldout with a list of animals, plants, insects, items, etc. to look for. Many of the items may sound a little obscure or complex and may be unkown to even an adult, but it may present a good opportunity to expand vocabulary. There is also a key on the back page with answers ...more

""I Took a Walk" features vibrant die-cut flaps which invite young viewers to observe the many forms of wildlife and plants found on land and in the water. Children can turn the pages for an interactive and fun exploration into nature. Full color."

A very informational book but not a good 'read aloud' book. I think that this book needs to have the right audience. If there is a student who is interested in this 'bugged out' book. I like that the pages open up. That is a easy way to get a child to

33 months - read this at the library with O. I like the idea of this book and it kept our interest for about 1/2 to 3/4 of the book. There is maybe just too many things to look for. I really should have focused on 3-4 creatures to search for before moving to the next page. BUT if your kid is into nature and/or Eye Spy type books I would certainly check this one out. This is a one on one lap book NOT small group read aloud type book.

This is like an eye-spy book. It teaches kids bout nature which would be good for kids who live in the city and have never explored around a pond or forest. I like how the pages fold open as well to make the pages bigger.
