Simplify

First, let the adult point to a "picture" in the book and then let child find a different picture.  Next, let adult point to a "word" in the book

and let child find and point to a different word.  Finally, point to a "numeral" in the book and let child discover another numeral in the book. (look for page numbers) 

Extend

When child has found any word, numeral and picture, you can be more specific.  Ask child to find a specific numeral (1, 2, 3, or 4), then a specific picture in the book and finally an actually word ( the, and, etc.)
