Why We Love It
The soft rounded lines are especially appealing to young eyes. This interactive board book is the first in a series, because once you’ve had some fun with Spot, reading becomes a continuing adventure. Interactive flaps and a simple story line have made this book a classic since it was first published in 1980.
- Extend the peek-a-boo theme to playing where’s (your baby’s name) using a blankie, towel, or hiding behind a chair or couch.
- Ask questions that offer two possible answers and allow your child to choose one. Then answer the question for your child. In time, they will be able to supply the answer. Say,” Is Spot behind the house or on a boat? Yes, Spot is behind the house!”
- Make a Spot puppet out of a sock. You can draw eyes on the sock, stuff it with other socks and knot the end for your baby. Instant toy!
