PreSchool-Grade 1Preschoolers will enjoy these two brightly illustrated game books. In each busy double-page spread, children must finish the sen tence by looking for the details. (An swers are provided on the inside back cover.) In I Spy at the Zoo a boy and girl and their parents discover camels, snakes, antelopes, etc. Zoo visitors of differing races are depicted. Another family visits a sunny resort in I Spy on Vacation and travels home again. The simple line drawings filled in with clear watercolors show cheery characters. These books would be useful for vocab ulary building as well as developing vi sual skills. They would supplement Lu cille Ogle's I Spy: a Picture Book of Objects in a Child's Home Environ ment (McGraw-Hill, 1970), which has more opportunities for a variety of ``I Spy'' games and Thomas Zacharias' But Where Is the Green Parrot? (Dela corte, 1978), which is more stimulating, as the parrot is more difficult to find than the items in Roffey's books.Lor raine Douglas, Winnipeg Public Li brary, Manitoba, Canada
