Where’s WaldoSanta Spotlight Search

by Martin Handford

Candlewick Press

Hardcover ISBN: 9781536220131

Ages 5-9

I love this time of year, not just because of the holiday decorations and lights, but because many of my favorite children's publishers release Christmas-themed books for me to pick up and share with my girls.  And, leave it to the folks at Candlewick Press to offer yet another favorite Where's Waldo book for my girls to enjoy.  This year, kids will have fun using the special magic slider enclosed with the book to reveal the picture and help them locate Waldo who is hiding in out some festive and fun scenes.  Each of the searches is challenging, yet fun, and kids of all ages (as well as adults) will enjoy snuggling up together on the couch or in bed at bedtime to try and locate Waldo, his friends and hundreds of jolly Santas that fill the pages of this look and find book.  

This is the second Where's Waldo book that my girls have helped me review that includes the magic slider, and they both agreed that they enjoyed this magic reveal feature over some of the other Where's Waldo books, as it makes for a more fun and interesting search.  And, this book in particular is perfect for kids ages 5-9 years old and beyond to get into the holiday spirit, as they flip through the pages of this book locating Waldo and all the festive and jolly things ready to be found.  My girls had a blast reviewing this book, and couldn't put it down until they found Waldo and all the other items on the checklists on each page of this book. 

 Each search was a challenge and sometimes left them scratching their heads as they moved the magic slider around the page to help them locate things.  But, in the end, the girls agreed that this is by far this favorite Where's Waldo book, and one that has found its place front and center on our living room coffee table, for them and friends and family to enjoy this holiday season. No matter your age, when you are tasked to find Waldo in his red and white sweater and matching hat, how can you say, "No." :-)

More about this book:

"Shake your sleigh bells, pull on your holiday sweater, and join in the festive madness! These night-time scenes are bustling with Santas getting ready for Christmas Eve. With the help of a magic slider to light up one spot at a time, can you find some very specific Santas—like the one whose stocking is threadbare? Or the ones who are slimmer than most? And by the way, where are Waldo and all his friends—Wenda, Odlaw, Wizard Whitebeard, and Woof? Featuring super-challenging searches as well as puzzles and games, Santa’s Spotlight Search promises many hours of merriment for seasoned Waldo fans and new followers alike.

Christmas is coming, and Santa with it—if you can only find him! Luckily, Waldo fans have a cool wand to help them spotlight the jolly old guy in the dark."
