"Spot is one of the essential experiences of childhood." (Parents magazine)

About the Author

Eric Hill published his first Spot title, Where's Spot, in 1980 and was the pioneer of lift-the-flap books. He is now the author of over 50 Spot books in various formats including sticker books, noisy books and lift-the-flap story books and there are 40 million Spot books in print in 60 countires around the world. Eric works from his home in Massachussetts, USA.

More About the Author

Eric Hill is the creator of Spot, the world's favorite puppy', who appeared in his first story, Where's Spot? in 1980 and quickly became one of the best-loved pre-school characters of all time. Today Spot's adventures remain incredibly popular and are enjoyed the world over.
Eric was born on September 7, 1927 in London, and educated at Pooles Park Elementary and Tollington Park Central schools until the outbreak of World War II. At 16 he joined an art studio as a messenger, where he was encouraged to draw cartoons in his spare time. He particularly enjoyed drawing aircraft, and it was the markings of planes that later came to influence the design of Spot, reflected in the spots on his body and the tip of his tail.
In 1976 Eric's son Christopher was born; by the time he was two Eric was making up stories about the adventures of a small puppy to read to him at bedtime and Spot was born!
The design of the books was inspired by an advertising flyer Eric had devised involving a flap covering an amusing picture. When Eric showed this to Christopher he saw how responsive he was to the idea and incorporated it into his book. Although initially created just as a story to please his son, Where's Spot? was actually published as a children's book in 1980 and started a new publishing concept of interactive books for babies'. The innovative lift-the-flap concept, combined with the simple story and quirky, charming illustrations, helped Where's Spot? become an instant hit with young children and within weeks it was at the top of the UK best-seller list.
The playful puppy soon became hugely popular and a series of adventures followed, including the introduction of Spot's friends and family. Spot expanded from the original lift-the-flap books to interactive storybooks, sound books and audio books. There are currently eight series of Spot animation available on DVD and these have been broadcast and sold on video and DVD all over the world.
Spot's own website funwithspot.com was launched in 2000 to coincide with Spot's 20th anniversary. Incorporating fun and learning it has helped thousands of young children develop their on-line skills through interactive games and activities. The site receives 10 million hits and 70,000 unique visitors per month.
As well as his son Christopher, Eric also has a daughter, Jane, who works very closely with her father on many Spot projects. Eric remains involved in the development of all Spot projects at every stage. He and his wife Gillian divide their time between California and France with a varied collection of animals which provide continual inspiration for the Spot stories.
Eric was one of the 'literary ambassadors' invited to The Children's Party at the Palace to commemorate The Queen's 80th birthday at Buckingham Palace in June 2006. This highlight of Eric's career was followed with the award of an O.B.E. for services to children's literature in the 2008 New Year's Honors List.

It really helps my daughter to understand the routine and make her feel better to know mommy will always come back to pick her up.
Babie
A nice fun read for a 2 year old who loves to lift flaps and goes to daycare (which we call "School").

I bought this book to prepare my daughter for preschool. It shows Spot's mom dropping him off at school, Spot's friends at school, the activities that he participate in when he gets there and that he is having fun, and all the mom's picking the kid animals up afterwards. I bought many first day at preschool books, and I like this one because it is a fun way to show them what to expect without getting too serious like a lot of the other books.

My 2 1/2 yr daughter loved this week. It is a flip book and at her age that is very attractive. It also shows spot having lots of fun and although a little shy as he starts the day it does not show him crying. I was looking for books that helped her see how mom will not be with her and how she will come back to pick her up with out showing the preschooler crying and this one was perfect!

We have five of the series: Spot's Windy Day, Spot Goes splash, Spot's First Walk,
Spot Goes to the Farm and Spot Goes to School.

My three-year old son loves the series, asking us to read all the books almost three
times a day. This, even when he has a number of books.

Spot is a cute little pup, doing things the way kids do, with little fear and sense of
wonder. Children identify with the pup in the way it explores life around. Out of all
the books we have, three have flaps. Children are always eager to
lift the flap and see what is hidden there. It is like playing a 'peek a boo' game with
the pup around!

Why four stars then? In the presence of new books in the market, these books do seem
dated. That's all. In 1995, I would have given if all five.

I must mention minimal text and that too in large letters as one of the books' strong points.

Not too fond of how this book was written, the story is all over the place, there are some things that I think should of been added to make it more complete..when reading this to my daughter I sort of fill some areas as I'm reading, its like there are sentences missing or words..that could make it more complete. Hard to explain. I know its a childrens book, but its just not fun to read..
