K-Gr 2-It is a good thing that the publisher chose to make this book with a glossy, sturdy cardboardlike paper because sticky little hands will be giving it a real workout. What little text there is offers a rhyming clue for readers to figure out before they set off to hunt for the answer in the picture. "Bubbles! Bubbles! In the sea! AGUA-GOOFY JUBILEE!/Search to find the honeybee!" The pages are bursting with colorful and wacky things to find, and children will pore over the pictures searching for the vampire cape, the squawking crow, or the swirled ice cream. What fun to hunt and hunt and be able to say, "Here it is!" The book ends with a rhyme and a foldout page that ask readers to start all over again and find 1 cow, 2 bicycles, 3 pigs, and so on until they reach 12 red books. The endpapers are filled with children with their noses in books, which is exactly what will happen when youngsters open this one. This clever, engaging, and fun selection is great for family sharing.-Joan Kindig, James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA (c) Copyright 2010.

From dinosaurs to flying saucers, mummies to robots, a glorious cornucopia of stuff to find hides in plain sight on the pages of this picture book. At first glance, the format is familiar to children who know Jean Marzollo�s I Spy series: a poem includes clues to items that appear on a colorful companion spread. Dig a little deeper, though, and more layers of fun unfold. Between the dizzying, packed scenes are quieter pages with round die-cuts that expose a few more rhyming items to find. Staake�s vivid, energetic digital illustrations are brash and colorful, with a mid-century spin and a style reminiscent of J. Otto Seibold�s artwork. Young viewers will want to watch for characters and objects that often reappear in incongruous vignettes (what�s that ogre doing in the submarine?). A concluding foldout page offers an invitation to start over with a countdown of more things to hunt for. An ebullient, witty title that children will return to again and again. Preschool-Grade 3. --Thom Barthelmess

A slice of cake!
A prickly shrub!
Lots of fun in MERRYWORLD! (Roller coaster twisty-twirled)
Can you find the ice cream swirled?"
The rhymes are catchy and both my boys have memorized them all! This book has also introduced my boys to new vocabulary words with the abundance of descriptive words featured. There are some pages at the end of the book that lists other items to find throughout the book for bigger kids (1 cow, 2 bicycles, 3pigs, etc.) and encourage the reader to take another look to find additional pictures (toasters, rockets, little frogs, ice cream-eating wiener dogs!) My husband and I also find obscure items and ask the boys to find them, which turns this book into a neverending adventure - I'm pretty sure my boys pick "Look! A Book!" to read every night just to delay bedtime!
Look! A Book! is a must-have for any child's library :)
On a side note I only have one complaint. The book I received had about 2-3 pages that looked kind of scratched/bent. Pretty disappointing for a brand new book but I still gave it 5 stars because the book itself is awesome!
