I've always been a fan of the I Spy books which combine language art skills with incredible visual images. Kids don't even realize they're learning because they're having so much fun. The rhyming texts were created by Jean Marzollo with Walter Wick responsible for the amazing photos. Walter Wick now makes his own series, Can You See What I See?, which follows a similar style.
Our 2nd grade students and teachers came back from a recent field trip, raving about the exhibit they saw on the creations of Walter Wick. The exhibit is currently in nearby New London, CT.
"Walter Wick: Games, Gizmos and Toys in the Attic"
Lyman Allyn Art Museum
New London, CT.
Exhibit runs until Jan. 26, 2009
