Where's Spot?

  • I had to blog about this giveaway from Feisty, Frugal and Fabulous. It's Where's Spot? 3oth Anniversary, and a DVD is being given away.
  • I have a story that goes along with Spot. When I was in third or fourth grade I decided to check out a Where's Spot? book. The librarian looked pretty displeased, and said in a disapproving voice, "You can't check that out! You need to check out something that's more at your reading level."
  • Ok...she was right, but by her saying that, it made me want the book even more! In my mind I was thinking, here's a book that has bright colors, and pictures that pop out, how in the heck could a book get better then that? I didn't want to give up pictures in this day I don't want to give up pictures in books. I looked over to the other bookshelf she was referring to, and the word, "No"might of even slipped from my lips. I ended up getting some book on Mohamed Ali because I liked the cover. Totally not up my ally!
  • It wasn't until my Mother (Grandma Spiehs) bought me my first American Girl doll, Kirsten, that I started reading bigger books. She had historical stories that went along with her. I went on to love Samantha, Molly, Felicity and Addy; who are all American Girl dolls. I actually cried when they decided to stop selling Kirsten. She, a character inspired me to read. I thought about all the other little girls that would be missing out.
  • My fifth grade teacher told me, "Alissa...your imagination can make up the pictures in bigger books." she made since to me. By the end of fifth grade I was reading 500 page novels.
  • One of the first books I bought Mica was, Where's Spot? We don't read it a lot, but I just thought it needed to be in his library!
