“I spy with my little eye” is a wonderful and fun activity most children love playing. It’s suitable for both very young and older preschoolers and helps develop their vocabulary and spatial awareness.
Each peach pear plum by Janet and Allan Ahlberg is a perfect book to spy with your little eyes! Rich in illustrations and full of wonder, it takes the children from fairy tale to fairy tale and invites them to spot nursery rhyme characters. Let the children describe the location of Jack and Jill. Are they up the hill or behind the tree? Next to the house or in the ditch? And where is the wicked Witch? You can make this as easy or as complicated as you like, depending on the developmental stage of the children.
With our book recommendations, we want to spark an interest in children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Most books go beyond the obvious STEM connections and can be a great starting point for exploring children’s questions and ideas further.
