Series Review: Summer camps may not have been in the stars for many kids this year, but the Spot Outdoor Fun series will help them keep their skills sharp for the future. Each title in this series, which is geared toward the youngest set, centers around a different outdoor activity and is packed with visual clues. At the start, readers are provided with a visual glossary of four pictures and words to look out for in the ensuing text; a final spread recaps those words and indicates where they appeared in the book. In Biking, a group of kids gets ready to go on a bike ride; the book emphasizes safety, pointing out the helmet, reflectors, and bells in the photographs. Beautiful stock photos accompany Canoeing, which sends readers in the search of the seat, paddle, and life vest they would need for a canoeing trip. Gardening walks readers through the tools necessary for gardening (“Do you see the hoe? It breaks up the dirt.”) and points out some of the things they might expect to find in their garden, like flowers and weeds. Readers can help tack up and ride a horse in Horseback Riding, which primarily highlights equipment like a saddle and reins. A crisp layout, repetitive text structure, and simple phrasings make this a natural pick for emerging readers.
