Lists animals from all over the world. Not 1001 different animals (mostly some of the same kind).
Example: A book that is used for children to spot 6 different chickens in a farm setting.


Children's literature I Spy counting book

I really like this Usborne counting book. The artwork is realistic and well-drawn. In each setting the reader is challenged to find the number of specific animals listed, PK could just hunt the animals if they aren't ready for the counting yet.

Miss 5 spent some time spotting animals in this book (no adult help really needed). I liked that a range of habitats are used.

Miss 5 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or themes. We try to get different ones out every week or so; it's fun for both of us to have the variety and to look at a mix of new & favourite authors.
I saw that this type of Usborne "Spot It" book was part of the preschool curriculum offered by My Father's World. This has been a huge hit, particularly for my 3-year-old, who is really good (and fast) at finding things in books.

Lizzy loves to find the animals on the pages of this book. It's also fun because she is learning to count right now and she can count them as she finds them.
Both Natalie and William enjoyed this book. It worked better for us to do a few pages at a time or else the counting was too overwhelming.
