I was wondering if anyone knew of any books that are similiar to Richard Scarry's book CARS AND TRUCKS AND THINGS THAT GO?  My 3 year old son loves trying to find gold bug on each page.  Finding Waldo is too advanced for him.  Just wanted some suggestions of other books that had the same item or critter to find on each page his level. (we also already have good night moon where my boys race to see who can find the mouse first.)

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

Jeannette

My 2 yr old daughter loves that too. She's been enjoying some of the Usborne books written by Stephen Cartwright. They are board books, but I know several of Usborne's books have little characters to find on each page. The one's I know for sure are Rusty's Bone, Wooly's Walk, and Curly's friends.

Also, now that I think of it, I believe the Little Critter series by Mercer Mayer has a little spider and cricket you look for on each page.

Happy searching!

Thanks Katie for the suggestions.  I'm going to check them out.  I have some little Critter books - didn't realize there was a spider on each page - we'll search for it next story time.

Thanks again,

Jeannette

Try the books by Mark Bruener.  He and his write write and illustrate picture books that have many hidden items on each page.  Shapes in the clouds, find the black cat or mouse or rabbit.  Job for Wittilda features a black cat and spider and mouse.  Adventures of Taxi Dog has a cat and cloud shapes.
