I Spy a Skeletonby Jean Marzollo, Walter Wick
All new, easy-to-read spooky riddles by Jean Marzollo are paired with fun I SPY photographs from Walter Wick to create an I Spy easy reader that's perfect for Halloween!
Children's Literature - Marcie Flinchum AtkinsClever riddles and picture puzzles make this Halloween "I Spy" book a treat for the curious reader. The Marzollo and Wick duo have paired up again to bring another easy reader to the "Scholastic Reader" series. The rhyming text accompanied by miniature pictures help a beginning reader decode the words and hunt for the items in Wick's collage photography. Some pictures are spooky, some brightly colored, but all have Halloween related themes. Bones, complete skeletons, bats, and masks are just some of the Halloween items the reader will be hunting for in the photographs. After looking for the pictures in the photographs, the reader has the opportunity to do an "I Spy" with words by finding words that match, words that rhyme, and words that have the same letter patterns. Even nonreaders can still enjoy the picture hunt. Some items hidden in the photographs are easy to spot immediately and some require a bit more patience. Wick also hides other things in his pictures that aren't part of the riddle. This is a Level 1 book for beginning readers that would make an excellent addition to kindergarten classrooms and libraries. Parents looking for car ride entertainment might also find this an excellent choice. Reviewer: Marcie Flinchum Atkins
