Search and Spoth Animals! by Laura Lungkvist, Swedish artist and designer, is the perfect book for little listeners, and just plain fun to look at. Adults will appreciate Ljungkvist's attention to design and color palette, her illustrations often having the feel of a sophisticated wallpaper.
Ljungkvist begins in the city with a pretty tough challenge - find 10 cats looking out their windows. From there, readers search for seven specific dogs amidst a sea of dogs, some illustrations and some from photographs. Search and Spoth Animals! alternates between easy finds with larger images and harder finds on pages packed with details, like the forest page where you need to find rabbits and squirrels and the page filled with bugs. There is always more than one challenge per page, making Search and Spoth Animals! fun that can be spread over several readings.
