Today's discovery behind the Advent calendar door (snuck in just under the wire) is Look-Alikes Christmas. We have always loved these quirky picture books. In a Look-Alikes book, intricate miniature scenes are created out of the most mundane and everyday items: combs, pretzel sticks, playing cards, dominoes . . . . The challenge is to find all of the items used to create the scene. For some reason, all of us took to the Look-Alike books with great enthusiasm, while the I Spy books (constructed similarly) left us cold.
It's just so cool! Do you see the erasers and the dog biscuit used as chimneys in the cover photograph? Fabulous!
