Book Sharing Monday :: Holiday Books :: I Spy and 1001 Things to Spot
After writing a few days ago about our little collection of holiday books, I am starting this series of Book Sharing Monday Holiday Books with two activity books that are favourites at our house. These books are used by everyone in our house, young and old. They are a great activity to do with visiting relatives too, when waiting for dinner to be ready.
Can You See What I See? The Night Before Christmas is a book filled with picture puzzles to search and solve by Walter Wick. You can play some online I spy games here. There is a written list of items to find on one side of the page along with each photo.
Usborne's 1001 Things to Spot at Christmas could be enjoyed by younger readers on their own because each double page has the list of things to spot with a picture of the item and an actual number, as opposed to the list in the I spy book. At our house, we still prefer to use these puzzle books with others, taking turns finding each set of items.
Regardless of how you use these activity books, they are a lot of fun! Both are part of a large series of books as well, for fun all year long.
