One thought on “I Spy: An Alphabet in Art

  1. ESF Tsing Yi

    This is a beautiful book to talk about art and inspire children Some of the alphabet connections are a little unusual and would require scaffolding magpies, quills, inkwells but the artworks are of course majestic, and children love to explore the pictures.

    Genre informationalReading Level kindergarten This book is an alphabet book Each page shows a picture and letters and you have to find something that starts with that letter This would be a good book for young students learning the alphabet.

  3. Sandy

    4.5 starsWhat caught my eye about this book is the variety of art work on the pages I spy with my little eye something beginning with and then the author gives you the alphabet letter for that specific page and immediately on the opposite page you have a work of art to find something that corresponds with that letter Some pages the author has you looking for items that end with a specific letter of the alphabet instead of beginning with a letter but that is the only difference in the pages What [...]

    I loved the idea of this book For each letter of the alphabet there is a painting with an object beginning with that letter or in the case of the hard to place x, that ends with that letter I really liked some of the paintings used, and the fact that they re identified by title and by artist, and trying to find the objects is a good exercise sometimes too tough here, in my opinion while it exposes the reader to some fine art Some of the objects are easy to find and some are challenging to find S [...]

    I normally cringe when one of our girls picks out an I Spy book I really dislike the series of photos crowded with objects, especially the ones with the creepy clowns So I wasn t sure what to expect with this book, but I will admit that I was pleasantly surprised Objects usually you can find than one that will fit that start or end, in the case of the letter X with the described letter can be found in each famous work of art They are fantastic paintings and the treasure hunt to find minute obje [...]

    I bought my own copy of this book several years ago in the Chicago Field Museum back when I was in college student teaching Even though I wasn t a teacher yet, I knew this book would be an interesting addition to my classroom library I was right My students love looking at the paintings and finding the object that begins with the given letter of the alphabet One of the reasons I like this book so much is that it feature paintings from a wide range of mediums and a wide range of artists, some of [...]

    With a little editing, this book would have been perfect There were just a few elements where I wondered what the author was thinking My daughter loved this book She s 3 years old and learning her letters She also LOVES art.But the I Spy part would have been better if we weren t looking for obscure things like magpies or yachts no child can identify that Plus, some of the items to spot were IMPOSSIBLE to see The pictures are just as dark, if not darker, than the originals I never could find the [...]

    I love art books for children that introduce them to some of the greatest works of art This alphabet book has excellent art and an added twist a child with a solid knowledge of the alphabet can hunt through the picture to find something that begins with the letter for each page It s not always the most obvious thing in the picture it even took me a while to spy it on some of the pages, which made it a fun read for both my daughter and me.

  9. Marie

    A great follow up to I spy colors in art for the slightly older set The text simply reads I spy with my little eye something beginning with Ff, and the child has to find something in the painting on the opposite page I actually like the open endedness of this book better than colors in art because there is no single right answer.

  10. Crystal

    This book uses famous class artworks to help teach children the alphabet This is a great way to integrate the fine arts into the classroom by exposing them to some of the most famous artworks of our time Plus, the story is interactive as the students have to find each letter in the pictures For A, as an example, the students would find the apple which starts with the letter A.

  11. PaulHankins

    The letters of the alphabet are found in famous works of art The answers are in the back, but the pieces are carefully selected to make the letter represented stand out some are a little difficult than others asking the reader to look a little closer.

  12. The Brothers

    A beautiful book where you look for elements in a famous work of art that corresponds with a letter of the alphabet For instance, A is for Apple in the picture on the front of the book.Well chosen art.

  13. Nancy

    Love this alphabet book that uses well known works of art to illustrate the letters of the alphabet, but in a subtle way you have to search for the appropriate item within the painting Great for kids on several different levels.

  14. Kimberly

    Judging from the cover I didn t like this book, it seemed creepy, but my 5 year old son got it from the library so we gave it a chance I m glad he did, it was fun for us to search for the items beginning with the specified letters in this art filled book.

  15. jacky

    Better as an art book than an ABC book Some of the I Spy answers are very hard and thus not appropriate to a child just learning ABCs I was thankful the answers were in the back.

  16. Susan

    A fun book for introducing art to kids Both my 9 year and old 6 year old enjoyed finding items in the artwork.
