An observant boy sees many things on his way home from school. A dog, a truck, a bird, a butterfly. . . these ordinary urban experiences become artistic inspiration for the boy. When he gets home, he draws all of the things he saw. Now he can see them at home, too!

 Caldecott Honor medalist Ted Lewin’s magnificent, lifelike paintings transform the boy’s everyday walk into an enchanting exploration of his surroundings. Emerging readers will like the simple, repetitive text, and will challenge themselves to see what the boy sees—and more.
An I Like to Read® book. Guided Reading Level B.

Praise For I See and See (I Like to Read)

"Lewin's charming, realistic watercolors incorporate details with evocative touches. . . . Basic vocabulary and word repetition (the boy uses truck to describe various heavy-duty vehicles) encourage recognition and reading confidence. Much here will ring familiar to the younger kids and new readers alike."—Booklist
"success is almost guaranteed for struggling readers."—Kirkus Reviews
"Simple repetitive text and large detailed pictures make this a perfect choice for the very youngest readers and may encourage them to take artistic inspiration from the world they see as the young narrator does."—School Library Journal
