Product Description

About the Author

Eric Hill was born in North London in 1927 and, apart from a brief period of evacuation, lived there for many years. His career as an artist began when he was employed as a messenger in an art studio and was encouraged to draw. Eric's son was born in 1976 and he began to write stories about a puppy to read to him at bedtime, and so Spot was born. The family moved to California in 1983 but Eric continues to visit the UK several times a year and is very involved in developing Spot projects. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
when your toddler is in the stage where they are making three word sentences, Spot is perfect for them. like Maisey, the graphics are bold and simple. The plot line, if we may call it a plot, is also simple. This happened, this happened, this happened, and then everything was all right.

HASH(0x9d1bce28) out of 5 stars Another Great Adventure for Spot May 6 2005
By M. Allen Greenbaum - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Eric Hill's 1981 `Spot' book by Eric Hill contains his signature large black font; big, bright pictures; and look-under-the flap surprises so prevalent in this series. These elements, along with some adventure, humor, and the loveable yellow Spot make this an appealing book for young audiences and beginning readers.

After his mom, Sally, warns Spot to watch out on his journey, Spot's first walk results in surprises (often hidden under the flaps), mildly dangerous situations (a cat snarls at the young, innocent Spot), new scents (colorful garden populated by a butterfly and two bees, and new friends. In the denouement, a fish (under a flap) warns Spot not to fall into the pond from which he is about to drink. The next page shows a soaked, but safe Spot heading back home. In another nice humorous touch, Sally asks Spot what he's been doing. The wet Spot, with flower, vegetable, and bone souvenirs of his first walk beside him, replies," Nothing." 24 pages long, with fairly sturdy flaps that should withstand nightly use for some time.

HASH(0x9d1c924c) out of 5 stars Great little book May 31 2006
By A's mommy - Published on
Format: Board book
I'm putting only 4 stars because this book is no nobel prize or anything, so I don't want people to expect the best in children litterature :)

But it's one of my son's (2 1/2 year-old) favorite books. He has memorized every page and will sit there on his own going through the book and telling the story. The sentences are very simple (3-4 word sentences that a 2 year old can easily repeat) and the flaps add to the interactive experience. Obviously we also read this book with him and it's an occasion for silly questions and a lot of fun. We own a few other of these Spot lift-the-flap books, and we all like them a lot. I can see our toddler reading them to our baby when he's older :)

HASH(0x9d1c92c4) out of 5 stars My daughter loves this book Dec 13 2010
By L. R. Rinehart - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is one of my 16-month-old's favorites. I'm impressed with how durable the flaps are for a children's book, as she's been unable to pull them off thus far. She's even started saying the cute little phrases under some of the flaps as she lifts them. Great book!
HASH(0x9d1c9654) out of 5 stars We loved the first Spot book that we read July 15 2015
By Jon - Published on
Format: Board book
We loved the first Spot book that we read, "Where's Spot?" but our second foray into Spot's world was not as successful.

This book relies more on the parent crafting the story and using the words on the pages as secondary. For instance, one page just has a bee saying "Thank you!" which doesn't make any sense, so you either don't read it, or you make something up for "Thank you!" to make sense.

My toddler is learning letters and words so I prefer books where I can point to the words as I say them and have him connect the sounds to the letters.
HASH(0x9d1c978c) out of 5 stars Excellent for vocab (1yr)...but scary cat Oct. 2 2013
By newmum - Published on
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
Daughter loves this book to bits! Frog, pretty to pretend to sniff, yummy carrots and a bone for spot!!! However one "scary" pages with a haunted-looking house and screeching cat that my daughter (on her own accord...surprising,) now chooses to "skip" over. Funny b/c I always said "meow", but she somehow developed a fear. Nevertheless great book-heavy rotation.
