I am not a big fan of "I Spy" books mostly because I find them time consuming and frustrating when you can't find that last one on the list! This "I Spy" book, however, was great because everything was easy enough to find and I would love to have it in the classroom because it is great at occupying time. It is a little bit harder than some of the "I Spy" books meant for younger children so I would watch the age of students you give it to.

Why can't I read this i though this was a free reading website why don't you make this a free reading website because that would make it 10 times better than usual. You thought I was done did you... NOW IM DONE

This book is great for ADHD children who may need to learn how to sit. Each page has wonderful realistic picture of things that needs to be found. Its an adventure on every page.

I love I Spy books because they help nurture a love of books even in children who don't love to read. I'm keeping a few in my classroom library to help bridge that gap!

I love I spy I always did. Those books were just so cool and I think it caused me to read more.

My toddler is a visual learner and loves all of the I Spy books. She always has one or two checked out from the library. They have been great vocabulary builders for her because there are so many items in the pictures that I would not otherwise think to show her. I do not usually read the text to her. We enjoy talking about what she sees, or I will randomly choose things to tell her I spy, and she looks for them. Sometimes, we will look for the items listed in the text together.

Recommends it for: older children and parents reading with them
This is another fairly typical book in the "I Spy" series. While the designs and pictures are very intricate in all of these books, most times they just creep me out. I must admit that I liked this book more than most in the series; it wasn't nearly as creepy as the one with the clowns (shudder!) But the items are hard to find for our girls, so they get frustrated easily. We end up picking out the items we like the best.

I have four children and we own each " I spy " book. These books are truly our favorite and they are not just for the young. Each picture makes them think, explore, and problem solve all on their own in a very different way. Ethan had cancer as a kid and these books are amongst the things that got us through the series of hospitalizations over 18 months.

This is just another I Spy book where you are challenged to find what is being spied on. I would use this book in my classroom by putting it in the class library where students could read it for pleasure. I would not really use it in my classroom for any educational purpose.

I enjoy parousing through these I Spy books with my children. We all had some difficulty with this one and couldn't find all the hidden objects before it was due back at the library. Perhaps we will check it out again in the near future and give it another try.

This is a hidden-picture type book. G's great-grandmother got this for him. He is WAY too young for it, but he loves looking at the pictures and asking me about what he sees. The pictures are challenging even for me, so I'm sure older kids would enjoy this series.

A collection of seek and find puzzles for school-agers with rhyming text and bonus challenges.

This title centers around a pirate theme. I really liked reading the notes from the author and photographer concerning how they made the book. Fascinating!

This is such a fun series, and this book is one of the better-executed entries in the series. All the images link together, leading the reader through a hunt for pirate treasure. Highly recommended for young readers, especially those who like puzzles.

Awesome. This was one of my most-loved books from childhood, and till now the vague story still haunts me. And I still haven't managed to find that fifth duck! The scenes from every page are all so beautiful, so imaginative...love it.

I loved these books whenever I was in Elementary school.
It kept me busy and made me use my noggin.

So if you're trying to work and your kids on getting on your nerves, plop them on the couch with one of these. =D

The "I Spy" series will always be special to me. There is simply no better way to entertain your visual learners, as the wonderfully expansive pages allow for exploration and entertainment at the same time.

This is one of my favorite "I Spy" books so far. The photos tell a story of sorts. First you see the town, then the island, the treasure map, and finally the gold.

Rhymes are always fun for anyone. For an "I Spy" book, it makes it more enjoyable than just listing: button, flag, house, blah blah blah.
