Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 The original ``Spot'' book is now offered with a Signed English translation. The text and illustrations are identical to the original, with the addition of line drawings showing the American Signed English hand move ments. Signing is simply and accurately illustrated. It is easy to distinguish the placement of the hands in each sign. Dotted lines show the beginning place ment of the hands, arrows point the di rection to follow, and a solid black line indicates the final position of the hands. These drawings are placed close enough to relate each sign to the appro priate word but do not distract from the story or other illustrations. The simple story and the hide-and-seek game as pect of this book make it ideal for sign language translation, as it allows chil dren to become involved in the signing. All children will be able to learn how to sign the story. Susan Nemeth McCar thy, Arlington County Pub . Lib . , Va.

About the Author

Original Spot stories by Eric Hill. Eric Hill was born in London in 1927. He left school at 15 to work in a shipping office in the city. At 16 he joined an art studio as a messenger where he was encouraged to draw cartoons in his spare time. In 1976 Eric's son Christopher was born and when he was 2 years old Eric made up a story about a small puppy to read to him at bedtime. In 1980 'Where's Spot?' was published and the rest is history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where's Spot? ***VIDEO*** July 30 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I am confused looking at the reviews here. They are all for the Spot book. The book is very good too, but the video (here on this page) is also great. I have it for my niece and also for my daughter, and am buying another copy for a baby gift for someone.
This video is great for a baby's first cartoon/TV to watch. It is not too "busy" (or too long) for babies like other cartoons can be. I noticed my daughter *really* watching it and smiling and laughing at it around four months old. And she has enjoyed it ever since (and is now 3). It's cute and simple - perfect for babies and toddlers.
With my daughter interested in Spot, it gave me time to do some dishes or read the day's mail - uninterupted! I highly recommend *ALL* the Spot videos (although the longer ones, like the Christmas one, my daugter didn't get into as much until she was about two). "Where's Spot" and "Spot at the Farm" are her favorites. And she enjoys the books too.
Also - I recommend Kipper the Dog videos too. They are also the same simple shapes/characters and sceneries and stories, just like Spot. And Maisy Mouse videos and books. I never see any babies and toddlers who don't like Spot, Kipper, and Maisy.The Baby Mozart videos are also excellent. Kids are drawn to them. None of the above are wastes of money - and they enjoy them from babyhood into toddlerhood.

It is difficult for adults to understand the magic appeal of Spot videos. These crude cartoons have none of the things we consider important in child entertainment. They are neither educational nor amusing, they have poor animation, the music is simplistic and repetitive, and all the parents I know are scratching their heads trying to figure out why their toddlers don't want to watch anything else.
I'm not going to try to explain Spot's appeal because I can't figure it out. All I know is that my son (almost three years old) loves this video. We've bought him at least a dozen other videos (Thomas the Tank, Pooh, Tigger, Baby Shakespeare, etc.) and all he wants to watch is Spot. Since there is nothing really negative or detrimental about Spot videos, for now we are just shrugging and enjoying his glee.
As Spot videos go, this is one of the better ones. I rated it a 7/10. The video itself is about a 4/10, with three bonus points added for our toddler's inexplicable joy whenever he watches it. If your child has never been exposed to Spot, be forewarned. It is like a toddler narcotic. If you purchase one, be prepared to watch it often.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great start to a life of reading Jan. 30 2002
Format:Board book
My older child first encountered this book when we found it tucked into a drawer at a cabin we were staying in. She was about a year old, and just beginning to walk and talk. Although I'd read books to her before, this was the first book to really grab her attention. She clearly understood the story line and loved it! This was the first book that she really seemed to "get" - she followed Spot's mother, and got very excited about each new possible hiding place for Spot. At that age she loved for me to "read to her" - but her attention, with respect to the book, was mostly involved in turning the pages as fast as she could, in which ever direction she felt like. Where's Spot really anchored her in the narrative progression of a story.
She is now a junior in college, and I gave her a copy of Where's Spot for Christmas this year. She was very excited, because she still remembers how much she loved this book (our copy was borrowed).

2.0 out of 5 stars Good for Little Kids ages 1 to 4. Aug. 28 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I watch this video with my little brother, and I notices that it is a great video for kids ages 1 to 4.
In this story, Spot does not want to eat his dinner, so he hides in a basket, so his mom had to search around the house. Next, he has a party, and all the friends play Hide and Seek. In another one, he needs a bath from rolling around outside with his friends.
This is wonderful for kids, and it helps them discover their world. It is a fun way for little kids to learn.
My least favorite parts are when you see the snake in the clock, and when the cat screams at Spot. The illustrations are set to the right manor, and the colors and music is calm. Kids will not notice the plain white space in the distance.
I recommend this to kids the ages of 1 to 4. If you have kids, they will enjoy it, and you might catch yourself watching it, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loves it April 28 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This is a set of short little Spot stories, and in between each one there is a little sketch, where two or three children do little exercises, like matching animals with the good they eat, or matching colours. The educational slots have nothing to do with Spot, and we could have done without them, but they are harmless enough.
We bought it for her when she was two, because she loves the books, and had spotted (sorry) a trailer on another video. She likes this video, but she likes the book more, especially the pop-up version. I still like the Wiggles better, because it makes her get up and dance, but some times it's good to have something less active.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter's FAVORITE! Aug. 7 2003
By A Customer
My two-month-old daughter got this book for Christmas. I thought she was too young for it. Boy, was I wrong! It is her absolute favorite!! Now at nine months old, she is lifting all the flaps and turning the pages. She gets so excited when I open this book. I cannot recommend it enough. The pictures are bright, the words repetitious, and the flaps sturdy -- a perfect combination for babies and toddlers! From now on, this is the book I am going to buy whenever I need to buy a baby or toddler gift. No one will be disappointed with Where's Spot!

Great book, and my son loves it. My only complaint is that the pages are a bit too thin. They arn't like a board book, so things can easily be torn or creased. Read more

I think I know one reason Spot is relatively popular: it is very simple. My 21 month old seems to actually follow the story closely, and relate it to her own life. Read more
