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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could be better Feb. 15 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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. Aside from that, my son can't get enough of spot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic favourite July 4 2009
Format:Hardcover
I received this book as a baby gift 24 years ago from another mom. We read and re-read it with my son. I can probably still recite it from memory. Tip: The flaps will detach from the page about the 50th read or so. Magic tape them back into place (repeat if necessary), and the book goes on forever. I bought this most recent copy to 'pay it forward' to another new mom.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter's FAVORITE! Aug. 7 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
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!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Fun for Little Ones March 12 2003
Format:Board book
This sturdy little book has gotten much use at our house. It became my daughter's favorite "lift-the-flap" book. The drawing style and gentle story engage children to participate in the search for little Spot the dog. Perfect for 1-3 year olds. All of Eric Hill's Spot Books are cool but this one is a real favorite. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars DECEMBER #4 Dec 10 2002
By A Customer
Format:Board book
I read the book wheres spot because it is a great picture book for little kids. The kids like this book because the pictures interest them and they cant wait to see whats on the next page. They like to pull the pop out thing on their own because they are so interested in it. I think it helps kids with their imagination and their senses.I enjoyed reading this book again because it reminds me of going to the kolb library when I was little and in elementary we all use to want to rent this book.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple and sweet May 17 2002
By Jenna S
Format:VHS Tape
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. I think it's helping her with her language too. And generally it is very sweet and non-threatening (although my daughter is afraid of that cat too!). There clearly is nothing embedded within them to entertain adults (unlike Sesame Street) but these are great videos for anyone who wants to avoid loud, busy, frantic, or violent things for their small children.
