I haven't purchased this yet, just have the library copy here. I heard about the adult version when it first came out, but didn't know there was a Look-Alikes for kids. I don't know what the age recommendation on this it, but my 3 1/2-yr-old is absolutely fascinated by it! Guess what he's getting for Christmas! And since I love things like this, everytime he says, "Mommy, come look at my library picture book" I drop what I'm doing and sit down with him. To me, that is the ultimate compliment - this book has prompted me to sit and concentrate on spending time with my child more often, and that's priceless. And believe it or not, most of the objects in the pictures aren't that obvious to adults, so when I point them out to him (excited that I myself found them), he's absolutely delighted. We've tried to push toys on our son that are not passive, where he sits and watches a battery-operated thingy do whatever it does, toys that encourage active participation and imagination, and I can't imagine anything better than this book. Just my thought, but I think this book and the original Look-Alikes are invaluable tools for teaching people of all ages to thing outside the box, shift your perception, and that's something that's good for all of us! Guess you can tell that I can't say enough good things about this, Ms. Steiner is an absolute genius.

My son received this for his 9th birthday. The adults loved it as much as he did. My mom ordered several more copies to use as a games at "grown-up" parties. Even the little ones liked it because you don't need to be able to read. This is a great book for all ages and well worth the money.

My five year old and my three year old love this book. I find it a lot of fun as well, and it gives me pleasure to watch my children get better and better at identifying the hidden pieces. We must have "read" it twenty times in the past two years. The material that the pictures are made from is more identifiable to children, and the scenes are ones that my children understand.
The CDROM isn't anything special. We played with it once or twice. It's the book that we keep coming back to.

We also have the first version and I bought this one for my younger son. This is such a fun book and every time you open it and look at these pictures (and you will catch yourself doing this a lot!) you see something different. This is wonderful in getting the child to think, look, explore and problem solve and what a fun way to do this!

This is one of the best books we have bought our 3yrs old boy. He got if for Christmas, but didn't get to enjoy it on his own for several days, because all the adults kept looking at it. I often find myself looking at it and find different things each time. Go ahead, get it!

I ordered both Look Alikes Jr. and Look Alikes Jr: The More You Look, The More You See. Different covers, but surprise! They are the very same book inside. Very disappointing deception. :-(

This book is a great tool to help your child closely observe details. A short attention span can quickly be expanded by both child and parent as you turn each page of this book.
I have used it with my daughter from age 5-8 and now with my 3 year old son. I usually ask them to find items on the page and then discuss how it is neat how the item was used to represent something entirely different. This is great to help them expand their imagination and see outside of the box.
Sometimes when you just don't feel like reading some night this gives you a great break. This is a great book and much better than Where's Waldo.

My 4 yr old received this book as a gift, but my 9 yr old loved it just as much, as did I! The artist is amazingly creative, and most of the objects are familiar to my preschooler. I also ordered one for my 6 yr old nephew, for whom I never know what to buy. This would make a delightful, amusing gift for almost anyone, and it teaches children to look closer at what they see.

Joan Steiner's "Look-Alikes, Jr." is a wonderful follow-up to her 1998 "Look-Alikes." This self-taught artist employs everyday items from chess pieces to lasagna noodles, from nail polish bottles to keys, from crackers to ink pens, to construct the most completely realistic little scenes. There are spaceships blasting off towards outer space; middle-class living rooms; classrooms; general stores, and more, all of which are chock-full of items Steiner employs to look like something else. The aforementioned lasagna noodles? Yes, they're here--as curtains! And they look improbably wonderful as curtains!
This is certainly a treat for kids. But you may find that the adults end up buying their own copies of "Look-Alikes, Jr." just so they can sit in peace and be engrossed for hours on their own without having to share this wonderful book with the younger set! Highly recommended!

These books are so creative and so fun. Look Alikes Jr. are much easier to look at and spot what is being used to look like something else. You might see a pencil that looks like a post on a house, a cracker as a window or a ball as a sun etc etc. These books are so fun and so creative and they just suck up your time because you get so busy looking at something that looks like something else. We love them.

Worth the money.
enjoy.
