Look Another Book!
by Bob Staake
About the book:
A crossing guard newt!
Once AGAIN a seek-and-find,
MORE images of every kind!
a music note to a teeny red boat, a blue kangaroo to a robot or two,
there are endless things to discover in this zany follow-up to Look! A
Book! from award-winning artist Bob Staake. Die cuts on the cover
and every spread reveal hidden treasures in each vast landscape, from a
zoo gone wild to an out-of-this-world moon base to a crazy art museum,
and more, providing hours of entertainment to readers young and old.
My 5 year old boy LOVES this book! Is it the monsters? The bright colors? The level of difficulty? The fact that he is very detailed? I don't know - but he LOVES it! Look Another Book is a fairly large book - ideal for lying on your tummy on the floor and looking at the pictures. Each double page spread is preceded by a solid colored page with 3 holes in it that highlights one thing each. It could be a punk alien or a drop of red paint or even a little monster - we'd look at that picture, then turn the page and try to find that item - he didn't quite connect that the picture would be where the whole on the previous page was when it was closed. But I'm sure that will come. =D
There don't seem to be a lot of things to find on each double page spread so I usually would find some little detail and ask him if he could find it - he doesn't read yet so he didn't realize that the book didn't asked him to do that. After you find everything in the book there is a full page that actually opens up vertically with another list of things to find. Everything rhymes which Connor loved and of course, being a boy, he LOVED the monsters!
This would be a great birthday book, FUN to read in the car, on a summer day at the beach inbetween building sand castles & wave surfing, in bed on a sick day - or whenever.

I was given a copy of this book to review on CCB. No money exchanged hands and I was not required to give a positive review.
