Look-Alikesby Joan Steiner
Welcome to the land of look-alikes, where the more you look, the more you see! Artist Joan Steiner has used everything from acorns and broccoli to yardsticks and zippers to create this striking three-dimensional world. Stop in at the Sweet Shop and sit down on a chair built out of pretzels and crackers, or stroll through the park, where pennies are cobblestones and a shoehorn becomes a slide. With more than one thousand look-alikes to find, this book will have puzzlers of all ages poring over its pages or hours on end.

This book is so fantastic that everyone in my family has received both of Joan Steiner's books for Christmas. I have friends who had to have their own copies after they saw mine. Everyone that visits me, from small nieces to my elderly mother-in-law, have LOVED every page. THANKS, Joan Steiner. When is the next one coming out? P.S. The person who wrote the long-winded review at the very top expressing dismay that cigarette lighters were pictured should perhaps realize that it's a GOOD thing her child CAN identify these items....otherwise, how would she know NOT to play with a lighter?? Wise up, lady!!
I am not sure if this book is age appropriate. This book has pictures of cigarettes,cigars, lighters and matches(enlarge the book and you will see the lighters in the boat). Some of these items you can not purchase until you are 18, so I wonder why they are in a childrens book. We teach our children that cigarettes are bad for them and that lighters and matches are not toys. I am not a proud parent because my child can identify these items. Children use there imaginations in many ways, what if they want to reconstruct what the author has built are we to give them these items to play with? Some people think this is art, sorry not for my children. I do not think this book is sending a very positive message to young children. This book is in some school libraries. What if a young child brought these items to school? What would happen? But its okay for them to be in a childrens book.
One of the best books i have ever seen.
At a birthday party for a child I and another adult had a lovely time going over the Look-Alikes, Jr.(a gift). I enjoy minitures for doll houses so this was a real treat. This would be fun for an adult who might be recuperating from illness and not able to do much.
