holiday hidden treasures; hidden picture puzzles

Summary:

This collection of 56 seek-and-find pictures covers holidays, big days (e.g., birthday) throughout the year.

Educational Themes:

It is important to remember that reading isn't always about words. One way to help children learn how to discern letters (a "b" from a "d" for example) is to use pictures that help draw an item from a collection, or recognize differences between things. This book lets them do just that ... and color, too.

Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
8 to 10
Recommended Age To Read Together:
5 to 9
Age of child:
Shared with 6-year-old child.
Purchase Recommendation:
Given the type of book this is, borrowing is not an option. It is a worthwhile buy if your child likes to do I Spy, seek-and-find, or coloring activities.
Little Kid Reaction

Our child would work on a page for a little bit, but then walk away. She was more interested in coloring the pages than finding the items.

Parent Reaction

We thought this would be a great book to share, because our child loves to color AND likes to play I Spy. We enjoyed finding the objects, but admit that it wasn't always easy. We also liked that it was something that you could bring out/put away throughout the year.

Pros:

This seek-and-find coloring book offers children a chance to explore books with hands-on activities. You don't have to know how to read to have fun with the book.

Cons:

The amount of detail on some of the pages is a little overwhelming, making it difficult to find items.
