Originally published in Japan, the Spot 7 series asks readers to look at two seemingly identical photographs and spot seven differences between the two. A riddle accompanies each picture set, which describes an item in one or both of the pictures. The first page explains the concept and offers a bonus challenge of finding a certain number of additional objects using only the right hand pages. In Spot 7 Animals all the pictures have an animal theme, either stuffed, plastic, alive or extinct. The scenes are imaginative and will entertain young animal lovers.
The last page of the book provides answers to the riddles and hints for finding the differences between the photos. If the hints are not enough, there is also a link to Chronicle's website where full pictures with the differences circled can be found. Fans of the I Spy or Where's Waldo? books will enjoy this series. This book may be especially useful in teaching kids to notice small details and in developing memory skills.
