Everyone is Here, just find them! Feb 28, 2008
This is an Ispy HIT in my house! Ever since I brought out my old copy of this book my daughter has to have it! She loves to find everyone from the witch to robin hood to the three bears! The Ahlberg's really did an excellent job of weaving in all the classic characters.

Play I Spy Mar 30, 2007
"In this book with your little eye take a look and play I spy"
This is a nice little book which takes characters from well known nursery rhymes and fairy tales and places them in an eye spy game.
The book has a lovely rhythm and the detailed illustrations provide plenty to look at. It is fun searching for the hidden characters, and the pictures can be used to extend and create your own I spy game with your child.
