  About The Book

Welcome to Look-Alike Land, where the more you look, the more you see! Like its predecessor, Look-Alikes Jr. features 3-D picture puzzles, but this time invites even the youngest child to join in the fun by featuring simpler, easier-to-find look-alikes in childlike settings. There are 11 scenes - house, parlor, kitchen, bedroom, school bus, classroom, construction site, movie lobby, train, farm, and rocket - each with 50+ objects to identify (700+ in total). Look for a cement mixer made out of a mustard bottle, kitchen cabinets made out of cakes of soap, and a bed built with crayons and pasta! Fun for all ages. This best-selling book is back with a brand new series design and a striking new cover.
