I Find a Momo a Righ Dare: Frankie’s favorite Look and Find books

by | Mar 12, 2014 | Catholic Mom Book Review, Five Favorites, What We're Reading | 9 comments

Frankie here. My favorite pastimes include throwing things away in the trash can, getting my fingernails clipped, and banging on stuff in quiet places. But a very close fourth is finding Goldbug in this book.

So when the fine folks at Quirk Books asked my mom to take a look at their newest children’s book, I figured I was the two-year old for the job.

Apparently, Find Momo: A Photography Book
is an instagram account turned book by Andrew Knapp. I wouldn’t know. My mom won’t let me have a phone. According to the part of the book kids don’t usually read, Mr. Knapp and Momo live in a VW bus and drive all over the country finding interesting places for Momo to hide. How’s that for professional reviewing?
The photography is super-duper and there is a mix of easy and challenging hiding spots, so even my biggest brother and sister enjoyed looking for Momo. And if, like mine, your mom kind of lacks the patience to scour a forest for a tiny border collie face, there’s an answer key in the back for when you ask her for help.
In my expert opinion, this book should appeal to photography, dog, Americana, and look-and-find fans of all ages.
Speaking of look-and-find books, here is my all-time favorite:
and some new books that just MIGHT, be making their way to an Easter basket near us:
Reviewed (along with some other really swell looking Easter books) at Crack of Dawn Crafts
a board book version of the “I Spy” series, made just for toddlers and beginning readers. And Mom, if you’re reading this, I also want that toothbrush bunny.
Happy reading everyone. Now, who wants to get me a snack?

    I love Andrew Knapp's Instagram! It's so much fun.

    I need to get that "Can You Find Saints?" book for my babysitting kids, too.

    We love search and find around here and have so many, but the Finding Momo and the Great Easter Egg hunt are new to me. I will need to check those out.

    Frankie is a great finder when it comes to Goldbug so these new books look very cute. He is great at throwing things in the trash for you even his own stinky diaper. Can't get any better than having someone like that around. He's a real cutie these days.

    The "Can You Find Saints?" looks pretty cool. Richard Scarry was my favorite as a kid … don't know why I haven't introduced my kiddos to his books yet. I'll have to put some on hold at the library. 🙂

    Oh man. Cars and Trucks and Things That Go is my 21 month olds favorite. He says car, truck and bug all day long. Also he is kind of really into walruses and funny enough Richard was kind enough to draw a bunch of them in the book as drivers and passengers. How thoughtful of him to think of my toddler who loves cars and walruses! I will have to get some of these others since finding Goldbug is a big hit.

    Has Frankie seen Each Peach, Pear, Plum? That's one of the many children's books I have memorized. I'll have to look for that Little Bunnies I Spy book. Jill is a huge I Spy fan, and Little Bunnies looks adorable.
