Little Brown Books for Young Readers
Spot is everywhere. Look around and you will find him in a dog's nose, a dandelion or even a bubble. With a play on words relationships including opposites and rhymes in the simple verbs, young readers can have fun exploring and finding Spot in the die cuts and art.
Praise for Find Spot:
"In a style reminiscent of Laura Vaccaro Seeger, Previn uses die cuts and simple phrasing to explore many different kinds of spots. It has all the makings of a grand concept book...the thick, crackled acrylics and heavy brush strokes give incredible texture to each pair. Extreme close-ups and generous swaths of bold colors heighten the exuberance. [A] playful game of searching for spots..."
From School Library JournalPreS—A fun read-aloud for babies and toddlers. Many new concepts and actions appear in the simple rhyming text, as readers are asked to "find Spot" on every spread. For example, "Spot crows [a rooster]./Spot wakes [an alarm clock]./Spot fries [an egg]/Spot bakes [a blueberry muffin]." Bright, painterly pictures appear throughout, and many, but not all, of the spots have die-cut holes in the pages. A good choice for toddler storytime and lap-sits.—Ellie Lease, Harford County Public Library, MD
