Lots of Spots by Lois Ehlert

Lots of Spots by Lois Ehlert first appeared as a picture book in 2010 and is now making its debut as a board book. With the uniting theme of animals with spots, Ehlert creates an out of the ordinary book that can best be described as non-fiction poetry. Every animal is paired with a rhyming quatrain that shares something about its behavior or habitat and the spots that either distinguish or camouflage it.

Often the poems are informative and funny and Ehlert's collage illustrations are always bright and eye-catching. Lots of Spots is definitely a book, especially in board book format, that kids will pore over again and again and also a book that parents will not tire of reading out loud.
