Spectacular Spots

Spectacular SpotsSpectacular Spots
by Susan Stockdale
32 pages; ages 4-8
Peachtree Publisher, 2015

Spots on creatures all around,
way up high and on the ground.

In simple and engaging rhyming text, Susan Stockdale explores where – in the animal world – we can find spots.

I really like the way Stockdale emphasizes action words. She points out gliding snails, swimming turtles, crawling crabs and charging cheetahs. This is a fun book to read just for the language. I also love the illustrations… my favorites are the sea slugs and the spotted owls that you see on the cover.

I also like the back matter. There are two pages filled with additional information about the animals she includes, plus a “Find the Spot” challenge.

Head over to Sally’s Bookshelf for beyond-the-book activities.
