Where's Spot?

Where’s Spot? by Eric Hill

Activity

Invite your child to lift the flap on each page as you read the book aloud. Suggest that you make a ‘lift-the-flap’ book by sticking a picture cut from a magazine on to a sheet of paper, and cutting out a card shape to cover it. Help your child to secure the card with tape and score along the edge for easier folding/lifting. Add some simple text.
