Look-Alikes Christmas

Author: Joan Steiner
Genre: Rhyme, I spy
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9.5

Type: Children's book
Time period: Present
Main characters: None
Exciting events: None
Passage from book or back cover: Grandma's baking cookies to ward off winter's chill. They're crisp, just like her apron -- a brand new dollar bill.
My overall opinion: This is totally one of the coolest books I've EVER read. There are about 8 or 9 pictures in this book, each composed of everyday objects. Each one has from 110 to 168 items you can find it. These include spool of thread, dollar bill, gummi vampire teeth, bingo cards, birdcage, blueberry pie, suctino cup, flat clothespins, chess pawns, pecans, circus peanut, gold chain, roses, broccoli, overalls buckle, gumdrops, raccoon fur, dollhouse chair, and SO much more! At the end there's a list for each picture, telling how many look-alikes there were and what each one was. This is an amazing book. Worth buying! I LOVE this book and look forward to browsing it each Christmas.

Hopefully you can blow up the above picture and see the dog bones etc in it. :)
