Product Description

From Amazon

Jean Marzollo and Walter Wick team up yet again for another perfect little I Spy picture book. In this one, kids who are just learning to read can practice their ABC's with Wick's special photo illustrations and Marzollo's clever alphabetical rhymes: "I spy an L wearing lacy white, and a metal M that's screwed on tight." Borrowing from some of their previous books (I Spy, I Spy School Days, and others), the author-illustrator team adds an original twist to the usual alphabet book, with each letter covered in its own letter-inspired design. P is plaid, E is a pink eraser, V is veiled with vines. Surrounding each letter are pictures of objects beginning with that letter (octopus, orange, ostrich). Young children will enjoy identifying the crisp, detailed pictures and reciting the bouncy rhymes. (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for those learning their letters. March 19 2004
Format:Board book
This book is perfect for a child learning their letters, colors and names of familiar objects. My two-year-old has fun finding objects that begin with each letter of the alphabet and the rhymes are just his speed. Parenst of toddlers know how some books can wear on you after a few reads...this one doesn't. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Can you find...? Aug. 6 2002
Format:Board book
We play a game I invented called "Can you find...?" in many other related books and when I came across the I SPY series, I knew the author had a winner. We own a number of the I SPY books today and they have become our favorites. It teaches patients and focuses her attention on looking for the little details in life. I will admit that I still use my phrase "Can you find?" to this day. Easy to read series. Highly recommended to 3 years old.

5.0 out of 5 stars I SPY LITTLE LETTERS June 20 2000
Format:Board book
I have worked with children as a pediatric nurse for 31 years and have spent a great deal of time reading children's storybooks to the children under my care. I purchased "I SPY LITTLE LETTERS" for my 29 month old grandchild. There is no better way to give a young child a sense of pride than by asking them to find objects on the page of a book. I am a believer in the "I SPY" concept so we proceeded to read the book together. What a delightful book! It is colorful, cheerful and fun too. The pages will keep a child busy for a while for there is a lot to do. Colorful letters and easily identifiable objects and figures are to be found on every page. The book challenges a child to observe, find and verbally express their discoveries. What a sense of accomplishment it is for a child to be able to discover things. I highly recommend this little board book for toddlers. It is a terrific early introduction to reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but not what expected Nov. 8 2001
By A Customer
Format:Board book
Since I'm restricted to ordering my books online, I'm unable to peek inside to check out the pages.
The alphabet is great with a picture scheme on each of the letters that represent the first letter of the word. It's not difficult to find the letters as they place about 3 large letters on a page with anywhere between 4-7 small pictures around..all on a white background. The inside pages are nothing like the cover.
The numbers and alphabet books might be better for a child up to age 1 (at least in the case for my child).
I bought this for my child's 2nd birthday hoping she'd have to search and find the letters of the alphabet to make it a little more interesting for her. It's still a nice alphabet book for practicing, but not so much for searching.
I found the numbers book to be more interesting since it offered more objects on the page that is more similar to the typical 'I Spy' series. The numbers are still clearly visible, so still not much searching. I'll have to order the older children's I Spy books since young children are more intriqued with complexity than with simple unchallenging pictures.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre - too simple July 27 2005
By Cuppa Coffee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
Maybe I started out to strong with the "big" I spy books for my 2 year old (which she loves!) this was too simple - I ordered it online, so I didn't get a chance to look throughout the book. I guess I expected more items on each page. My daughter rarely ever picks up this book, but the bigger I Spy books I need tape to keep them together :)

5.0 out of 5 stars I Spy Little Letters Feb. 7 2009
By Katherine Schiselr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
This is a nice little board book for little ones who have not yet started to read on their own. The puzzles are very easy compared to the paper back books. If your child has mastered the paperback books, these will not be a challenge to him/her.
