Format: Hardcover
The "1001 things to spot" series by Usborne has been a huge hit in our family with both our boys. Each book in the series has a number of pages with things to look for in the pictures. They keep kids entertained for hours and are also great for teaching counting and for building vocabulary. The variation in the pictures sparks lots of discussion about what country this town may be in, or which era this "long ago" image may be from.

Having said that, "1001 Pirate Things" was a disappointment to me. Unlike many of the other books in the series, each page features a very similar illustration (invariably a marginally different pirate ship) and it feels very repetitive. Both my sons got bored with this book and so did I. I know that there are boys out there who totally obsess on pirates and it would be wonderful for them. But unless your child fits that description, I would try one of the other books in the series instead.

We have several of these 1001 Things books in my classroom.

The illustrations are detailed and colorful.

The topics of each page are engaging and add tons of vocabulary!

It's not just look for dogs, cats, and cows, instead it is more like

"find kiwi birds, okapi, and civit cats."

There are extra puzzle clues and things to do at the back of each book.

I picked this book up at a used book store for my 4 year old daughter and have only regretted not looking for more while I was there!

My daughter and I both ADORE this book. Each scene is unique and the illustrations vivid. What I love is that there is so much more to look at in each scene than just the items you're supposed to find.

I appreciate that each "find" item has a picture (great for kids who aren't reading yet), a number, and the written name of the item. The pictures are amusing and keep us laughing. This is a definite.

My children have enjoyed the other usborne 1001 books and this one was no exception. However, we ordered a like new copy of this book and it was obviously not...covers were in poor shape and pages were dog eared. We were going to give it as a Christmas gift, but decided not to due to it's used condition. However, the boys love it anyway...so it gets 4 stars. Just beware the "like new" listings....

I bought this book for my son who just turned four. The pictures are fun to look at with lots of detail. I love that next to the pictures of things to find there is a number of how many. This is great because your child will learn to itentify numbers 1-10 while having fun finding things.

After seeing this at our Pediatricians office, we had to order it. It is a very colorful, fun book... it can occupy a 3 year old for quite some time. We have enjoyed watching her count all the items over and over...

My grandson loves this book. We spend lots of time "finding" items in the appealing and imaginative illustrations. It is a keep sake for years to come. Appeals to any age.
