Spot Loves His Mommy is a picture book. It is intended for the nursery age group. although the author has won awards, this book appears to have not. The book is about activities that occur with spot and his mother tell each other that they love one another. This book only deserves two stars because there is no plot, it feels as though the book is a compilation of random sentences. One thing Spot Love His Mommy has going for it is that it is an easy read. The words and language used are simple and easy to understand. There is a consistency with the theme of spot and his mother being on each page. The illustrations match the activities being described in the text on the page. The illustrations are a bit bland, nothing really eye catching or interesting. There are no bold colors used which is very necessary to grab and hold the attention of the age group this book is intended for. I believe Eric Hill used folk are in Spot Loves His Mommy because you can tell Spot and his mother are dogs but are not illustrated in a realistic manner. I do not believe this book would be appealing to young readers especially in this age group because it is not the least bit exciting with the text or illustrations. Spot Loves His Mommy could be used in the classroom around Mother's Day. The children could create a book for their mothers as a gift telling why they love their mother. They could also have a discussion about things they do with their mother, what makes their mother special, and how does their mother make them feel special. If the child does not have a mother then have them chose someone else of importance to them.
