THIS BOOK IS FREAKING AMAZING!!! I am so inspired by this book. I found this -- a "new" book in our pre-school Sunday School class. The idea of the book is that it is scenes made from objects -- but what you see is not what you get. The amazement is in figuring out the creative things every scene is made from. Trust me on this one, this is the kind of book that will fascinate the curious and creative. If you like the "I Spy" series, you'll love these. In a way though, I think this is better than ...more

This is a good 20 mins of seek and find fun - I don't know how the author/artist had the ability to create such details. You can even make up your own stories about the pictures and increase vocab by pointing out some really unusual objects and associating them with things they already know (that tower is made out of cookies or the ticket booth is part of a baby bottle).

When I was in primary school everyone wanted to read it, but the writing is not why this book is amazing, THE PICTURES ARE JUST AMAZING!!

I LOVE all Joan Steiner's books. They're non-verbal & really hone your attention to detail. I had fun watching adults and kids 'reading' the Christmas book. She uses so many amazing bits & pieces of real life things. Reindeer made with real wishbones & a peanut in the shell! Mountains made of white fluffy bras! This woman has an imagination that stimulates mine. My 3 year old granddaughter recognized her mom's black lipstick case in a stove pipe while I was insisted it was just a bla ...more

Joan Steiner's Look-Alikes series is a great resource in my preschool classroom. The children are drawn to it in the same way they love "I Spy" books (and games), but it offers the additional depth of helping children ask the question, "If I use my imagination, what ELSE could this object become?!" The books became a great reference and inspiration when helping kids do collage work with found materials. I try to have one or two books from the series in my classroom at any given time.

Read this in the doctor's office while waiting to see if William had conjunctivitis. Its a very cool concept to look at how these made these realistic pictures out of other objects. However, it was not something the kids were ready for.

Interesting pictures that obviously took a long time and a lot of creativity to make. The girls liked the pictures, but it didn't hold their interest for long. We didn't even try to find all the things in the pictures.

This could be a puzzle book, an art book or a children's book.
Nothing but charm and whimsy.

It is such a rush to see the little things turn into something else.

For some complex pictures try Look-Alikes by Joan Steiner. In the back of the book are some challenging searches for super sleuths.

The boys loved looking at this book and picking out hidden objects. The text wasn't bad either, so it was a good change-up for storytime.
