I spy with my little eye...

a book! I spy Look! A Book! to be exact.  This "zany seek-and-find adventure" is perfect for kids who aren't quite ready for Where's Waldo or more detailed I Spy books.  The cut-outs on each page reveal something specific on the next, helping little eyes focus on what to find.  The rhyming words near each cut-out are also great for helping children make predictions.  For example, one double-page spread reads, "Look! A wheel! A seal! A banana peel! A moon! A spoon! A square balloon!" 

Use this with curious toddlers to help them associate print words with individual objects.  Make a game of looking through a circle made with your thumb and forefinger at objects around your house.
