Usborne 1001 Things to Spot at Christmas by Alex Frith and Terri Gower
This is a jolly puzzle book stuffed full of Christmas things to find and count. Busy scenes, including Christmas Land, a snowball fight and Santa's workshop, burst with things for children to find, count and talk about. It helps develop vital word and number skills.
These books are like the Where's Wally books for children. Bright, busy pictures, although no where as busy as the Where's Wally picture, with lots of details on each double page spread. Each double spread also has a list of things to find.
The pictures are of a cartoony style but they are still very cleverly drawn and very detailed and children will love spending time looking at the pictures trying to spot the listed items.
This is another great book to give as a gift to a child - they will love searching each picture for all the individual details the book lists.
I recommend this to anyone buying a book for a child this Christmas.
Thank you to Amy at Usborne for sending me this book to review.
