Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Damon Burnard invites readers to play the familiar "I Spy" game on each page of I Spy in the Ocean and I Spy in the Jungle, both illus. by Julia Cairns. In a spread for Ocean, for example, "something beginning with the letter A" highlights "A" in a circle, and readers can see part of a sea creature through a die-cut circle on the opposite page. Once the page is turned, the "A" shows through the circle, to begin the word "Angelfish," while the background of the full-bleed spread features the fish swimming past in colorful waters. Each book provides relevant "Animal Facts" at the end. (Aug.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Jungle begins with the phrase: "I spy with my little eye something beginning with the letter-J." A die-cut circle provides a glimpse of a jaguar's spotted coat through the verdant foliage. Flipping the page reveals the animal, and the word "Jaguar" with the letter "J" from the previous page shown through the cutout. This pattern is repeated throughout both texts, and the first letter of each animal named corresponds with the spelling of the respective habitat. The pleasing illustrations, done in soft, lush colors, and the clever format are integral parts of the stories. Although the typical audience for board books will enjoy these titles, the guessing element and animal-fact pages may be beyond this group, and better suited to children in preschool or kindergarten. Attractive additions offering a slightly new variation on the popular "I spy" theme.-Melinda Piehler, North Tonawanda Public Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
