Book Review: I Spy Little Wheels

Rating: ★★★☆☆

The “I Spy” board book series is best during the non-story phase of reading aloud, when children require more back-and-forth interaction.  On each left page is a rhyming verse describing a few toy objects, and on the right those objects are hidden within a scene constructed of other toys.  The photography is good, and the use of toys instead of real-life scenes demonstrates for young children how certain toys can to be best enjoyed. Like wordless books, this genre contains a visual scene meant to be cooperatively interacted with; unlike wordless books, there is enough text that the adult does not have to come up with original commentary.

This volume may be better for boys than girls; it consists of hot-wheels type cars in scenes made of wooden blocks, toy trains with tracks, toy construction vehicles, and a few other toys.
