I like the fact that Spot is so well mannered and listens to his mommy! ;))
I like the fact that the focus is on everyday but such important things in a child's life - like playing a game of peek-a boo with friends; being cheerful; spending time with grandparents; and sailing a boat in the bathtub.
Short sentences, simple story line, great big font, bright illustrations, and an adorable puppy-what else can you ask for in a good book for children? There are several books about Adventures of Spot- all published by Puffin books. Buy or borrow at least one to help your child discover this delightful puppy!
If you are into multimedia then this website on Spot is a great resource as well: http://www.funwithspot.com/ And here's a nice interview I chanced upon on my search for Eric Hill's perspective on his books and Spot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKdelTJmct8&feature=relmfu
