Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Fans of the elegantly energetic I Spy picture-puzzle series may wonder how Wick could top the lavish sets he created for I Spy Funhouse and I Spy Mystery. Here, however, he and Marzollo surpass their previous achievements-by reversing direction. While they stick to the same formula (under a full-bleed photo of artistically arrayed objects, verse challenges the reader to find various objects), this time they eschew special effects and razzle-dazzle compositions in favor of sunny spreads showcasing, for the most part, common items. Most sets are basic, from a classroom blackboard to a playground floor to a homemade puppet theater. But each apparently simple spread wordlessly and playfully reinforces learning skills. In a spread featuring plastic numerals from one to 12, for example, each number is surrounded by related objects; a building block emblazoned with "X" and a toy clown wagging the splayed fingers on his hands are among the items illustrating the number 10. The puppet theater is hung with cardboard cutouts of figures and props from classic fairy tales. Other sets teach such concepts as sets and patterns, cleverly integrating items seen on previous spreads. By stressing the value of everyday objects, this ingenious volume will encourage readers to look closely at not just the pictures, but at their own surroundings. Ages 3-8.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3?This riddle book in verse follows the now-familiar format of large, oversized pages chock-full of objects and realia. This time, the double-page spreads are devoted to unifying activities or themes associated with school?chalkboard, a puppet show, art or science classrooms, a playground, etc. The full-color photographs are sharp, bright, and busy. Some of the items that youngsters are asked to locate are quite small, and the rabbit on the chalkboard has been almost erased and is very faint. Still, this will be a fun addition for children who appreciate riddles and for those who enjoy poring over pictures.?Susan Chmurynsky, East Kentwood Freshman Campus, MI

Had requested an I Spy book for Christmas.
Enid Albat
Under the picture there are several riddles, and kids can spend quite a lot of time looking for the objects.

I would highly recommend this to anyone at any age!

Format: Hardcover
The I spy school Days is a great beginner book from this series. This doesn't mean it isn't challenging by any means but the pictures.... the wonderful photos even the youngest child can relate to. I know it sounds simple, but you will have to see for yourself it sound easier said then done but these are so much fun! It is very challenging, fun, and social, an excellent family event! There are extra credit riddles at the end of the book but it also is fun to make your own. The youngest little learner can really benefit from the photos in this book as it gets them going on letter, numbers and objects which they know or soon will! I can't rave enough about these books they totally intrigue me!

Format: Paperback
Our daughter has loved all of the I Spy books since about 20 months of age. (Before that we only gave her the board book versions). She "reads" them even more than our 4 year old who loves them too. Little ones this age enjoy sitting with an adult identifying familiar objects while learning new ones. She gets so excited trying to find all of a paticular multiple object on one page. I would give the I Spy books ten stars if I could!
A+++++++ books!

Format: Hardcover
I agree with the "reader" who says not to believe the age range the publishers have put on these books (4 to 8). My 10 year old loves these books at least as much as my 6 year old does, and so do I! They're incredibly imaginative, and make you look at pictures in a whole new way.

Don't let those publishers tell you the age range. I teach fifth grade and my students LOVE these books. They are always checked out of our library and of the public library. What fun!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Anna Klein on February 20, 2003
Format: Hardcover
Children of all ages (adults too!) will find something to enjoy in these pages -- the young ones just looking at the absorbing pictures and the older ones searching for the myriad of items hidden within each scene.
The scenes are each a two page photograph filled with many objects that revolve around a certain theme, from the alphabet to a town of blocks to a wooden marble machine that actually works (see the last pages for a note on this). At the bottom of each scene is a riddle to tell the searcher what he or she is looking for and to provide clues. Some of the objects are easy to find, some are impossibly difficult!
And for those of you who reach the end of the book and wish it wasn't over ... it doesn't have to be. There are additional riddles on the last pages so you can enjoy the pictures all over again.
Highly recommended.

I love this so much because it's fun, it's awesome, and now I want all the I Spy books. The I spy school days book rules. The coolest part was where all the toys were. This review was dictated to me by my 7 yr. old son.
