Why read it?

3 authors picked Where's Spot? as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This is a classic. The enchanting illustrations and delightful humor mesmerized my 3-year-old, who kept asking to read it over and over throughout his childhood and insisted on buying the rest of the books in the series.

The interactive lift-the-flap elements really capture young readers' attention, and the character, Spot, is simply irresistible.

From Tanya's list on picture books about pets.

My son loves the flaps on each page of this book, especially the one where it asks, “Is Spot in the closet?” and he opens the closet door to reveal a monkey. “No!” says the monkey.

My son keeps opening and closing the closet doors, making himself smile, before moving on to the next page. Eventually Spot is found and can have his dinner, but it’s so good that we must read the book again, and see the monkey in the closet.

My youngest daughter loves dogs and this book became a firm favourite with her. We ended up getting more books in this series including a waterproof one for bath times. This is another lift-the-flap book and my daughter delighted in pretending not to know what was under each flap. Again, like her older sister, it wasn't long before she started to read the book to me.
