Where’s Spot? – The original lift-the-flap book by Eric Hill
We have received ‘Where’s Spot?’ book to review.
In this house we are BIG Spot lovers! Our favourite puppy has always been number one since I was a little girl, and also now for Jake and Grace who love Spot too.
Eric Hill’s loveable puppy, Spot, has been an integral part of early childhood since he first appeared in the classic lift-the-flap storybook Where’s Spot? in 1980. A firm favourite with parents and pre-schoolers, Spot’s toddler like behaviour introduces children to new experiences through friendship and play.
Spot is truly international and his adventures have been published in over 50 languages (including sign language and Braille book editions) selling over 60 million books.
Jake received a gift set which was a book and Spot cuddly puppy when he was a baby. Since then Spot has been a big hit in our house and has been on many adventures and traveled many, many miles with us, and now Grace often likes to take him to bed with her.
The classic ‘Where’s Spot?’ story is based upon Sally, who is Spot’s mother, looking through the house trying to find Spot to tell him its dinner time.
As she goes through the house, looking for Spot, she searches in different pieces of furniture, but instead of seeing the lost puppy, she is greeted with lots of animals throughout the book. Each page has a lift flap which is great and fun for all ages, from babies for hand to eye coordination to exploring toddlers and older who will love getting involved in the story.
It is great for all ages as it will keep them entertained throughout with them being involved in lifting the flap on each page.
Grace who is two thoroughly enjoys this book and is continuously asking this book to be read to her.
Jake who is five loves this book too and now he is in school learning to read, he is trying to read the story to Grace and blending his words together to read this to her, as it is just up to his reading level so he is able to read ‘Is he under the bed?’ as they both look together through the pictures.
This book never gets old and is fun every time we read it. It will be permanently on the front of the book shelf.
We have printed out a spot sheet for them to color in, this is a quick snap of Grace’s final masterpiece!
She had so much fun doing this and got well into the glitter glue and even added her own 3d sticker!
