Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Booklist
June, 1 2005
PreS-Gr. 2. In this latest title in the I Spy Readers series, Marzollo adds new text to images culled from the I Spy Treasure Hunt (1999). Short, rhyming directions invite children to search for objects in the crowded, often grainy color photographs, and small, inset pictures show what to look for. A few of the images are obscure: some children may have trouble puzzling out "a pair of wings," for example, which is represented by an abstract, bird-shaped hole in a piece of wood. But the I Spy formula continues to draw eager fans, and the closing pages, which group objects by letter, will certainly appeal to the newest readers. A vocabulary review appears on the inside cover. -Gillian Engberg

Children's Literature
Many children have amused themselves with the "I Spy" game. One player says, "I spy with my little eye..." and prompts the others to find a particular object he or she sees, giving clues until someone guesses what it is. This game has morphed into a series of books by Scholastic. In this paperback, which is from Level 1 of the "Scholastic Reader" series, each rhyming riddle directs youngsters to find a handful of objects hidden in a photo; for example, "I spy an arrow, a pail on a string, a furry groundhog, and a tire swing." Each object is joined by words that identify it. Beginning readers will enjoy locating the objects while spotting many additional interesting items in the photos. The last few riddles zero in on specific object/word combinations included on previous pages; for example, one riddle asks readers to find two words that end with the letters "NG." A short "Fluency Fun" test helps parents determine what their child has learned from the book. The four-level "Scholastic Readers" series is designed to match a child's interests and reading skills at various stages. Books in Level 1 feature simple words and short sentences composed of words that youngsters can sound out, a great way to hone phonics skills and learn new words. The higher levels are progressively more challenging. To many youngsters, playing "I Spy" while reading this book will spell an irresistible combination. 2005 (orig. 1999), Cartwheel Books/Scholastic Inc, Ages 4 to 8.
