Picture puzzles for pre-readers! Youngsters are encouraged to find a few items per spread. Items are introduced in rhyming text and in pictures. For a greater challenge children can cover up the pictures and just look for the items based on the rhyming text.

Family fun, themed for PreK-2.

Level 1 Scholastic reader...helps children learn the words by having them look for the objects in a larger picture. My kids found it fascinating--it was their first time reading one of these many Marzollo/Wick books.

this book is a smaller version of the I Spy books. This book would be a great tool int he classroom to make learning fun. This could be put in a center where children cool look at the last few pages and answer the riddles.

The little guy likes this series and so do I. The riddles are written in a rebus format so even at 3 1/2 he can read along with me. He's not all that interested in finding the objects on the facing page. For now he's too excited to help read the book to really pay attention to the seek and find aspect.
I like recommending this book for travel. They are a great size and are a more reasonable price point than the full size hardback series.

A fun puzzler book for those lazy afternoons. Enough hunting required to work a bit without having to get help. Fun and gentle.

28 moths - another book typical of I Spy series but O really likes them and for $1 I can't go wrong. She's loved them since 13 months and this one will be good for airplane travel.
