"Where's Spot" is one of the first books that my 8-month-old has let us read to him. It's short, has simple, colorful pictures, and has lots of animals and objects to name and talk about (and every page has a picture of a dog, which he loves). We return to it time and time again. Unlike other lift-the-flap books that we own, the flaps in this book are large and sturdy and relatively easy to grab, so that he is able to lift them himself and peek at the animals behind doors, under rugs, and in closets. I highly recommend this book as a first book to read with your baby. I now use it regularly as a baby shower gift for new moms.

Simple illustrations for my sons are key and these definately are. The pictures are very coloring-book like in that there are no surperfluous additions in the background, the shapes are simple and the colors are true. If Sally, Spot's mom, is looking behind the door, there is Sally and the door. That's it. When Sally looks under the rug, the rug is yellow with blue fringe. There are no distracting patterns on the rug. The is no question that the yellow is yellow and the green is green.

Great for teaching many concepts ~ prepositions (under, in), animal names and colors.

I was leary about the book being a peek-a-boo book with my two sons. I was concerned that the peek-a-boos would tear. One did, but I glued it with scrapbooking glue and it has held up.

A definate must have for anyone.

I didn't realize this was miniature edition. It is too smalland the flaps are too flimsy. ... I still would like a largeredition.

My 2-year old son Connor received Where's Spot for Christmas (thanks, Aunt Judy!) and it was love at first sight. I didn't think anything would be able to knock One Naked Baby from atop his "most requested" list, but this charming little book did the trick.

The book focuses on mama dog Sally's search for her wayward pup Spot, who is late for supper. Each page finds Sally in a different part of the house, and contains a lift-up flap that hides a different animal. The text is kept to a minimum (usually it's just "Is he under the bed, etc.?" followed by "No"), but it has a rhythm that really drew my son's interest and had him eagerly turning pages in the hopes of eventually finding Spot. The illustrations add to the book's charm. There are plenty of bright colors and the animals are just irresistible. I'm a confirmed cynic, but even I can't help but grin when Sally and Spot finally settle down for their dinner. My son's enthusiastic "Good boy, Spot" only makes that smile wider.

As simple as the book may seem, it does include plenty of learning opportunities, from identifying the various animals and colors to the household items and shapes. The repeated use of the word "No" also provides a simple example of how letters are combined to make a word.

This fun little book gets my highest recommendation, and more importantly it get's Connor's "Again, again!" seal of approval. It's a great addition to any toddler's library, and would make a great baby shower gift as well.

Our 1-1/2 yr. old son laughs in delight as each flap is opened. We shout the words together as he identifies each hidden animal. It amazed us the first night when he wanted to read the book again and again. Where's Spot has turned into a sharing and learning experience between us and our child.

This is a book my 21-month old 'reads' (either with me or on his own) again and again, and he laughs the whole way through it every time!

He's memorized which animal is in each hiding place and can just about recite the entire book without lifting the flaps, and enjoys it even more when I make the animal sounds to go with the pictures!

I've bought copies for my friends' babies, and we now have copies at each of the grandparents' houses as well!

My daughter loves "Where's Spot?" "Spot" was one of her first words and when she was able to walk saying "Where's Spot?" was a way to have her bring you the book. Apparently, there is something wonderful about Spot. Check it out.

This is a great book for preschoolers. My son, who's 3, loves lifting the flaps and knows most of the books by heart. The bright colors and simple language keep younger children interested to the very end. I highly recommend this and all of Eric Hill's other Spot books!
