Eric Hill writes and illustrates the Spot Books. Spot is a yellow puppy with brown spots. He is round and cuddly with a beautiful smile. Children and adults love the friendly dog. The infant and toddler board books are for those under four-years-old.. The board books have between ten and twelve pages.
Infants and toddlers are learning about Thanksgiving traditions. Spot is learning about Thanksgiving, too. Kids learn with Spot in the Spot Thanksgiving Books. Pumpkins, parades and Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family are part of Spotís Thanksgiving day.
Spot Thanksgiving Books are board books with lift-the flaps. Infants and toddlers love to lift-the-flaps to find Thanksgiving objects and Spotís friends. Eric Hillís board books are the prefect size for small hands. Thick pages are easy for young kids to turn. The print is large and in black, so they can easily focus on the words. On two facing pages, is one simple sentence.
Eric Hillís illustrations are simple and beautifully colored. Use the board bookís color to teach kids their colors. Spotís friends are different animals. Teach the child the name of each animal. This can lead to discussions of where the animal lives in the wild and the sounds made by it.
Spot Thanksgiving books work on many levels. First, they learn about Thanksgiving. They learn of the traditions linked to it. Secondly, they learn their colors and animal names. Last of all, kids have a fun story with their pal, Spot.
