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).

Joan Steiner's Look-Alikes series is a great resource in my preschool classroom.
