Children's LiteratureThis is the latest in award-winning photographer Walter Wick's "Can You See What I See?" series of eye-popping puzzles for children of all ages. Complex photographic still-lifes spill across the pages of this over-sized hardcover book, challenging the reader to sort out hundreds of images competing for visual attention. Each picture is organized according to subject matter. For instance, there is one spread with dozens of stuffed animals, another with hundreds of shiny beads piled in different containers, and one that consists of row after row of tiny toy cars. For each picture, Wick lists more than twenty specific items to find, and the search for individual tiny pieces becomes nearly obsessive. It is easy to imagine this book giving a restless child something fascinating to contemplate for hours, while at the same time training him/her to look carefully at details and sort out differences among similar objects. Since the pictures contain so many child-friendly objects collected by the author, this book might also inspire youngsters to begin their own collection. 2004, Cartwheel Books/Scholastic, Ages all.
