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 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 Journal
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
