This is one of my secret obsessions....it's true. I loved this book. Just thought you should know. I'll never get tired of this book.

I worked with my five yr. old to find the hidden pictures believe it or not he did better then I did! I strongly recommend this book for anyone looking for a fun way to spend an hour or more with your kids!

Got this for a 4 year old's birthday. He loved it! Pre-readers have pictures to guide them in what to find, early readers have pictures to help them read the words and there are endless possibilities and bonding when an adult takes the time to sit with their child to read it. Adults can ask kids to find more things than the book asks them :) Fun for the whole family!

The age range about says 4-8, but I find the book applicable even for my two-year-old. He can't read yet, and I think he would have a difficult time finding what the riddles say to find. However, we work with him by pointing out certain objects, numbers, letters, and colors. He also enjoys looking at the pictures and finding things he recognizes.

I have a three and a six year old who insist upon looking at this book every evening before bed. It varies in difficulty, and some of the items I still have yet to find. The photos are colorful and the arrangement and composition of the objects are well done. The book's longevity goes a long way since other objects can be named for your kids to find. This is much less challenging than the Where's Waldo series, yet still entertaining for readers of all ages. There are multiple volumes in the series. We have had ours for several months and still have not grown tired of it. And besides, if you put it down for a month or two, the kids will enjoy it again as if it were new!

I first saw this book at my brother's house & read it with my 3 yr. old nephew. I was really impressed! Great pictures, rhymes, and word teasers make up the book. It is really unique and kids have a great time with it.

This series of I SPY books are ours of fun for all the familly. Even Adults get in to this search and observation of multiple objects, and when you find them, and you go back to the book a few weeks later, you search all over again.
