These books have provided hours of entertainment already for my (soon to be/tomorrow) 5 year old. If he had to pick between the two - Mean Machines would be the winner. He is a bonafide car fanatic. Each book contains 12 individual spot it challenges, having you find such things as a naughty squirrel - which leads you to this little squirrel standing on top of a tipped-over Christmas tree. Mean Machines has a challenge called School Bus Rush in which everything is yellow! These are fun pictures to just look at - and they can be challenging. But, if you do happen to find (and memorize) all the items in each picture, you only have to open to the back to find additional lists provided for each one. If this still isn't enough there is an extreme challenge at the back of each book. If this STILL isn't enough you can go on the Internet with the book's ID number and find even more games and challenges.

If you haven't figured it out - I am a big fan of these books. I also have fun trying to find the items with my son. And I know it won't be long before he is reading them and finding them all on his own!

*I received these books for review from Molly at Capstone Press*
