Spot is a leopard that can change his spots.
Robert M. Lopshire
I would recommend adults read this story to their children or children read it for themselves. It is probably best for kids from ages 3-9. Though, adults would probably enjoy this book too. It is highly inspiring and about finding what is special about you. It has tons of funny stuff that will entertain your kids until the book ends. I highly recommend that you buy this for your children or rent it from the library. It is one of my favorites from when I was young, and I'm almost positive that after your child has read it, it will be one of their favorites too!!
We have a silly spotted animal who insists the he should be put in a zoo because look at all he can do, but they won't take him.
Told in rhyme, he explains to a little boy and girl all the wonderful things he can do. Why he can change the colors of his spots, and so your child learns several colors.
He can make them big, small or place them on the boy for sure.
Surely he should be in the zoo, but the children lead him to just the right place to be.
What a fun read, colorful, entertaining and a learning tool as well.This is one happy book and you and your child will truly enjoy sharing. Highly recommended.
First - What's with the orange spots? They are not orange, they are red scribble on yellow fur. Don't they have orange ink? It does not look orange to me! This confuses my daughter when I say orange - she looks at me like i'm nuts and says no, "red"! and I see her point! - I hope newer editions can fix this.
Second - Violet? What 2 year old says violet? Again, I am corrected whenever the violet spots appear - because they are purple. Then I have to explain that violet is another word for purple, which interupts the flow of the story, and I feel like I have to justify myself every time for my 2 year old!
As I said - great book, great story, great pics, nice rhythm, - but if we could do a revision - please give us real orange, and the word purple too!
This year I pick Put Me In the Zoo. It is a cute rhyming story about an yellow animal with spots. He wants to be in the zoo but the zoo does not want him. A little boy and girl ask him why he wants to be in the zoo.
He shows them all the things he can do woth his spots. They change color,size and he even can put them in other things. The children find the perfect place for him.
The book let's you talk about being yourself and using your talents. Everyone is special is their own way.
For the art we painted a paper plate yellow and put dots on it along with a face and eyes. They turned out so cute.
I love Dr Seuss and this is a great book to read to your kids.
I purchased this recently as part of a baby shower gift. It is not a board book, but a regular hard-cover book with regular paper pages. I love the simplicity of the colors and the simplicity of the story line.
