Kids and Adults (of All Ages) Will Go Crazy for the Award-Winning Seek-And-Find BigFoot Series from Happy Fox Books (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent review copies from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.





Two New Books in the Popular BigFoot Seek and Find Series Available August 13th!

(Only $14.99 each, in hardcover)

 
Earlier this year, the folks at Fox Chapel Publishing released two books in a new Seek and Find series.  The BigFoot Seek and Find series by D.L Miller was the talk of the Toy Fair in NYC back in February, and started selling off the shelves, with teachers, parents, adults (of all ages), librarians and others picking up these fun, yet challenging Seek and Find books to enjoy with their families.  BigFoot Goes on Vacation kicked off the series, and won an Independent Publisher Book Award.  Then, it was followed by BigFoot Visits the Big Cities of the World. 

I recently had the opportunity to review these two books, which released back in January, along with the two BigFoot books I shared above, which will be available on August 13th.  I grew up loving Seek and Find books, and have been sharing them with my girls -- partly because they love the challenge like I do, but also because it lets me put aside "adulting" for a little bit and be a kid again, as I sit next to my girls trying to find all the objects first. :-)

So, what makes the BigFoot Seek and Find series different from others?  


"These new seek and find books feature friendly and adventurous BigFoot. Here, BigFoot travels around the world and the challenge is to find him in the sea of activity. Along the way, fun facts are included about the special places BigFoot visits. Children of all ages will be entertained and educated with BigFoot!"

I really like how you are provided with fun facts, as you can learn while having fun trying to pick out BigFoot and the other things hidden within the beautifully illustrated pages of each of the challenges.  It is hard for a parent or caregiver to not want to sit and give another set of eyes, to help children find all the hidden things.

Here is more about each of the books available (or soon to be available, as of Aug. 14th) in the BigFoot Seek and Find series from Fox Chapel Publishing:

My girls and I really enjoyed these four BigFoot books from Happy Fox Books, and can't wait for more to be released.  Who knew globe-trotting around the world looking for BigFoot could be so much fun, and you can learn some cool facts along the way?  I have to laugh off all those neigh sayers who say there is no BigFoot, because my girls have been finding in these Seek and Find series...he sure does get around! :-)

If you and your family love seek and find type books or playing "I Spy" games, then you will definitely love the BigFoot Seek and Find series from D.L. Miller.  This series with not just challenge and entertain you, but will also educate, making learning fun.  With a few more weeks left until kids head back to school, why not consider picking one or all four of the BigFoot books to bring along for last minute family getaways, or snuggle up with the kids on the couch and see who can BigFoot and the hidden things first.  Just be warned, these challenges are addicting, and after you find everything in one challenge you will want to turn the page and continue on.  These books are hard to put down, and when left on the coffee or end table, will be the first thing family and friends will pick up and want to put down. :-)

About the Author:


"As with BigFoot, the artist and creator of this series is a bit on the elusive side. He is rarely seen in public, spending most of his days sketching in his studio located among the mighty oak trees found only in the deep, dark woods far off the beaten path.
Deeply inspired by nature, the artist spent most of his childhood tracking creatures great and small across the rocky ridgelines and wooded mountainsides, perfecting his tracking skills and keen ability to spot what many of us never see. It was once said that the artist could identify approaching hummingbirds from two counties away with one eye, while tracking a fast-moving, bouncing black bear on a pogo stick with the other eye.
Despite his many accomplishments, his most important discovery and skill is the ability to spot the deceptive BigFoot that walks among us but remains unseen by most. After spending decades learning the habits of this elusive, mythical creature, the tracker/artist has finally agreed to share his journals that capture the sightings of the infamous, larger-than-life creature that has mystified generations.
Now you have the opportunity to sharpen your search-and-find skills by finding not only BigFoot and his legendary footprint, but also the many other unusual and sometimes unexpected people, creatures, and objects that can be found at anytime...anywhere.
Happy Searching!"
