I Spy in the Ocean

Damon Burnard, Author, Chronicle Books, Author, Julie Cairns, Illustrator Chronicle Books $6.99 (24p) ISBN 978-0-8118-2988-5
Damon Burnard invites readers to play the familiar ""I Spy"" game on each page of I Spy in the Ocean and I Spy in the Jungle, both illus. by Julia Cairns. In a spread for Ocean, for example, ""something beginning with the letter A"" highlights ""A"" in a circle, and readers can see part of a sea creature through a die-cut circle on the opposite page. Once the page is turned, the ""A"" shows through the circle, to begin the word ""Angelfish,"" while the background of the full-bleed spread features the fish swimming past in colorful waters. Each book provides relevant ""Animal Facts"" at the end. (Aug.)
