      “I spy with my little eye…” The young boy sails the sea accumulating things in his spyglass via a sing-song rhyming game. As if this isn’t an amusement enough, there are other things for the reader to spy along the way–not in the hideous jumble of junk drawers an I Spy book, but a few lovely things here and there.In a gentle spin on daydreams and boys’ adventures out to sea, the young boy finally arrives at his island to not find wild things waiting, but a much tamer and sweeter frie [...]

      This bright and beautiful book, about simple childhood adventure, will be a favorite with young readers.

      This book is beautifully illustrated and is a perfect calming story for very young readers. The repetition in the book is good for growing minds, and the book can inspire some i-spy activities of one's own after reading it. A lovely story!

      I liked this book because of the repetition & it's very interactive. The kids had fun trying to remember the actions and their order.
