Book Review: i-spy – In the Countryside and At the Beach

When I was a kid i-spy books were all the rage. I used to love wandering around with my book and pencil looking for all the things in the book. It was great fun and was a fantastic activity for the Summer holidays. Kept me occupied for hours!

So when I was asked to if I wanted to review a couple of the i-spy books it brought back amazing Summer memories and I thought this will be fun! Baby girl is a little too small to know the concept of the books but it’s fun putting her in the carrier and wondering off around the fields looking for everything In the Countryside book. I’m always chatting way to her so it’s great for the both of us to get some fresh air.
