Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This 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.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-The creator of Can You See What I See? Picture Puzzles to Search and Solve (2002) and Can You See What I See? Dream Machine (2003, both Scholastic) is back with another photographic adventure. This time, the focus is on collections, and the 12 picture puzzles feature intriguing assortments of buttons, plastic dinosaurs, nature's autumn contributions, stuffed animals, wooden blocks, and the contents of a junk drawer. The same beaded toy figure from the other titles is also concealed in each scene. As a wordsmith, Wick offers pleasing rhymes that clearly direct readers to retrieve a requisite number of objects. Once again, his photography engages, even mesmerizes viewers, though these scenarios appear a tad less complex and less tricky to solve than those found in the former volumes. The theme of collections is bound to be popular and has a classroom application for lessons dealing with sifting and sorting. An author's note unveils some of the book's mysteries and may encourage readers to create their own games and mazes with everyday items.-Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
