The Girl's thoughts on Let's Find Pokémon! by Kazunori Aihara


The Girl has had this book in her collection for some time now. The cover is barely attached, that's how much she loves it. It's sort of like a Where's Waldo? or I Spy but with Pokemon characters. The Girl is crazy about Pokemon; she collects the cards, has a couple Pokemon DS games, and watches the cartoons every now and then. So when she came to me with a piece of paper with a review she wrote during her break at school and begged me to post it here, I just couldn't refuse.

Let's Find Pokemon! by Kazunori Aihara
Reviewed by The Girl (age 8)

Let's Find Pokemon! is one of my favorite books. It is such a cool book because cover to cover, there are 384 Pokemon. It has a few mazes in it. Also, it has some funny pictures in it. My favorite maze is Lost Inside Mt. Moon. That's my favorite maze because it has funny pictures and is underground. The hardest maze is Diglett's Cave because it has do not enter signs, and where it has do not enter signs you can't go that way because the way is blocked.



[Though I can't say I'm a big fan of Pokemon, I enjoy doing the activities with The Girl. They really exercise your eyes with pages of one particular Pokemon in various poses, and you have to pick out certain ones. The illustrations are colorful, and every time she opens the book with me, I see something I'd missed previously.]

Disclosure:  The Girl purchased her copy of Let's Find Pokemon!

Great review The Girl! She's going to be a reviewer in her own right soon enough!

384 Pokemon! Yeah, I remember that about the book and that's about all I remember!

I think The Opening Act need a few copies of this -- one for each, and probably a spare for when one goes missing...

Hmm, sounds like a cool book. I think The Girl's opinion is very important when looking for gifts for my niece and nephew. I will keep this one in mind!
