Hello hello! Welcome to Booktomato! Today we are talking about a pure and simple classic character that every young reader should have on their bookshelf - Spot, the dog. Author Eric Hill created this darling little doggy in 1976 for his son, Christopher. Spot the dog can be found in a number of essential preschooler books like this one, Who's There, Spot?, Spot's Birthday Party, Spot Can Count, and others. Each book features fun lift flap windows to discover on each page. Did you know that Hill invented the lift-the-flap style? He did! recommended age: 0-5
Story Time Conversations:
- The first read around, open each flap and talk about who is inside. The second read around, try to guess who is inside the flap before opening it.
- Which of Spot's friends is blue? Which friend is green?
- Do we go to the places Spot went to in his day? School? Laundry room? Backyard? Talk about what we like and don't like about each place.
Have a great day and read something fun!
