Summary: Poor Andrew is feeling very blue, all the other giraffes are very spotty but he is as white as can be. He does not have any spots, you see! He keeps seeing spots wherever he goes… One spot, two spots, three spots, Four! And many, many, many more. “Where did you get your spots?” he asks. Join Andrew as he discovers how the ladybug, the leopard and the owl came to have spots and discovers that spots often appear when you are least expecting them! This is a wonderful rhyming picture book for children of all ages.

My ReviewI am an avid collector of children's books. My shelves are positively groaning! Having recently reviewed another of Louise Lintvelt's books, "Goodnight, Sleep Tight - What a Wonderful Flight ", I jumped at the chance to do the same for this one. "Goodnight" was great, and I hoped that this one would fulfil my expectations. I was not disappointed.
I just love this little book, and so did my kids! It's a delightful story that explains how Andrew the giraffe finally got his spots, and cleverly delivering the message that all good things come to those who wait. It is written in simple, engaging language that the children love; they enjoyed spotting the rhymes and even substituted some of their own. Julie Sneedon's illustrations are delicious - wonderfully drawn and bursting with colour.
A perfect book to engage inquisitive minds, and a firm favourite on my book shelves. A must-have for any summer reading list.
