5.0 / 7.0

This is a fun picture book that combines an I Spy-type game with familiar fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters. It really is a fun game–and it’s not overly easy for my preschooler, which is great. The illustrations are lovely too, and full of small details that are engaging and enjoyable.
