After his mom, Sally, warns Spot to watch out on his journey, Spot's first walk results in surprises (often hidden under the flaps), mildly dangerous situations (a cat snarls at the young, innocent Spot), new scents (colorful garden populated by a butterfly and two bees, and new friends. In the denouement, a fish (under a flap) warns Spot not to fall into the pond from which he is about to drink. The next page shows a soaked, but safe Spot heading back home. In another nice humorous touch, Sally asks Spot what he's been doing. The wet Spot, with flower, vegetable, and bone souvenirs of his first walk beside him, replies," Nothing." 24 pages long, with fairly sturdy flaps that should withstand nightly use for some time.
This book relies more on the parent crafting the story and using the words on the pages as secondary. For instance, one page just has a bee saying "Thank you!" which doesn't make any sense, so you either don't read it, or you make something up for "Thank you!" to make sense.
My toddler is learning letters and words so I prefer books where I can point to the words as I say them and have him connect the sounds to the letters.
But it's one of my son's (2 1/2 year-old) favorite books. He has memorized every page and will sit there on his own going through the book and telling the story. The sentences are very simple (3-4 word sentences that a 2 year old can easily repeat) and the flaps add to the interactive experience. Obviously we also read this book with him and it's an occasion for silly questions and a lot of fun. We own a few other of these Spot lift-the-flap books, and we all like them a lot. I can see our toddler reading them to our baby when he's older :)
