{My thoughts} – Valentine's Day is fast approaching. As a parent I am always on the look out for books that revolve around the holidays so that my children can learn and read more things. The I Spy Book Series is incredible in my opinion.

This Valentine's Day book is filled with rhymes and pictures of various objects. The pictures of various objects go together with the rhymes. You read the rhyme on one page and then you find the objects mentioned in it on the next page. There is so much that can be learned by reading through these books.

There is so much to be learned with this books. The various objects in the pictures are helpful in teaching children word association. After you are through finding the objects in the rhymes you can look through the pictures and point out other objects that you may want your child to find. Hopefully your child will repeat the objects back to you and help work on increasing their vocabulary.

I recommend this book for any parent looking for a fun book/activity for their child to share with them. There is so much to be learned by reading these books with your child.

{My thoughts} – I have always been a huge fan of I Spy Books. This particular book is more Easter based and I feel it would make an excellent Easter Basket present for Children. I am always a fan of cute books and excellent gifts for children.

This little book is full of nice little rhymes on one page and then a picture of various objects on the next page. In this book there is mostly bunnies. I think that the bunnies could be slightly cuter. However, since the pictures are rather small it does make for a lot less space for things to be spread out and hidden within them.

I really like like how there are various objects spread out on each picture page. It gives the parent the opportunity to help teach children word and picture identification for many other objects on the pages. Many of the pictures are bright and very much appealing to children. My daughter really enjoyed having this book read to her, and pointing to all the objects and having me tell her what they were.

I recommend this book for young children. It helps them to learn word association. It helps them to increase their vocabulary. There are so many things that children can learn by having these books read to them.
