In the latest Spot book, the famous brown-and-yellow puppy and his friends help young readers learn over 500 words and identify objects. Some of the words, such as ``tree,'' ``bird'' and ``flower,'' will be familiar, but others, such as ``horseshoe,'' ``horizon'' and ``recorder,'' won't be as well-known. Instead of a single story line, the book has double-spread pages that present a unified themebreakfast-time, helping on the farm, music class, working in the yard. This format allows Spot, Tom, Helen and Steve to be in many different settings and situations. The uncluttered illustrations and large, readable text will provide many hours of pleasure and learning. A niceand differentaddition to the Spot books. Ages 2-6. (September)
