Spot A Lot: Vehicles Storybook and Jigsaw #Review - What Katy Said

Spot A Lot: Vehicles Storybook and Jigsaw #Review

Little G has always been a bit obsessed by cars, I have no idea where it has come from as neither myself or Mr F could care less about them. Ours gets us from A to B and that is all we know! For some reason though she has a real love for them and has recently started asking me how driving works.

She now knows all about the gears, the different pedals and when to use the handbrake. She knows we use petrol but that Granddad and one of her uncles use diesel. Now, her love of all things wheeled does not stop there! She has also announced that she wants to be a train driver when she is older- I think it is from all our trips to London!!

We were recently invited to be Parragon Book Buddies and the first book we were sent was so apt I actually laughed when I opened it! It is called Spot A Lot: Vehicles. I wish I could have captured the look on her face when she opened the parcel- it was just made for her!!

Vehicles puzzle

The book actually comes in a box and has a puzzle inside too which made it even better! She wanted to do the puzzle straight away of course so we got going! The box says suitable for 3 and over and I would say that is about right for the puzzle, she didn’t need help at all but it did get her thinking.

The back of the puzzle is not wasted either- they have a mirror image of the puzzle that you can colour in.

The book itself is great, I always look at things from a teacher perspective and this one ticked all of the boxes! It isn’t one for snuggling down at bed time I wouldn’t say, more a fun one to look at together in the day. It reminded me a lot of Where’s Wally, but instead you are prompted to find a dog on each page along with other characters depending on where the main character is visiting on each page.

Something I also liked was the fact that counting was incorporated throughout the book. Little G is able to count well beyond 10 but she sometimes struggles counting objects that are scattered around or hidden on a page so this really got her thinking!

Once we were done she went off with the book and read it to herself- always a sign of a great book!

We were sent this book as part of the work we do with Parragon. All thoughts and words are my own.

    This looks like a great book and very fun to read. We are Parragon Book buddies too and we recently received the isle of the lost- a DIsney Descendents novel. It was fab!
