Summary: There are 14 themed pages filled with the things that little girls love ... and plenty of fairies and princess paraphernalia, too. This is a seek-and-find book for discerning objects and counting.
Type of Reading: playtime reading, interactive reading
Recommended Age: read together: 5 to 10; read yourself: 7 to 10
Interest Level: 5 to 8
Age of Child: Shared with child nearly 6 years old.
Young Reader Reaction: Once she settled on a page, our daughter had a great time searching for the things to spot. Sometimes she would lose her place (because the pages are chock full of stuff), but we could never do "just one" of the pictures.
Adult Reader Reaction: This is I Spy in pink and perfectly suited for the Kindergarten set. We've tried some of the I Spy books, but she finds them a little too tedious and doesn't always recognize the objects. With this book, she was in heaven!
Pros: This seek-and-find book offers young girls the opportunity to (unknowingly) practice their critical thinking skills. There are never more than 10 of an object, so preschoolers can explore, count, and discover independently.
Borrow or Buy: Buy. This book has multiple levels of fun and education. It is suited perfectly for the target audience, who don't need Mom & Dad's help to read the clues.
Educational Themes: There is plenty to do with this book. You can learn and recognize numerals and count; use critical thinking skills to find objects that match what you're looking for; or just make up stories abut the activities on the page.
