Parents are left STUMPED by an ‘easy’ alphabet learning book that calls on toddlers to find the object starting ‘R’ – but which one is it?

  • An innocent children’s book has stumped thousands of parents with its question
  • The book read: ‘I spy with my little eye something beginning with R’
  • There were six modes of transport on the page, including a pirate ship and car
  • But the answer was far more baffling than anyone first realised 

A children’s book has stumped thousands of parents with its question about what object starts with a certain letter, namely the letter R.

An anonymous parent took to Reddit to share a copy of a book he found ‘confusing’, captioning a photo of a specific page that had him stumped with the caption ‘I thought I was stupid because I couldn’t figure out which one started with R’.

The book read: ‘I spy with my little eye something beginning with R’.

There were six modes of transport on the page, including a pirate ship, car, train, submarine, light plane and sailing boat but none of them very obviously started with the letter ‘R’.

Others took to the forum to share their own frustration. 

‘None of them start with R. They all start with gas or the wind,’ one man joked.

‘This is what happens when you order a book off Wish,’ said another.

A third added: ‘Why does nobody realise that the car is a Renault?’

But a host of families said they actually owned the book and the answer was ‘rowboat’.

‘We have this book!! The answer is the sailboat, which they call a “rowboat”. We hate it, which is probably why our daughter loves it,’ said one woman.

‘Calling shenanigans! This “rowboat” doesn’t even have oars… and it has sails! That, my friend, is a sailboat,’ said another.

‘Someone needs to fire their graphic designer,’ joked a third.
