Here is another excellent word search book for kids 8 and up. My great grandkids love this kind of puzzle, and the beauty of it is that it not only strengthens word recognition, it also bolsters their ability to spell. This particular collection has 100 puzzles, all with interesting themes that kids will enjoy. Mixed in with all of the fun subjects are puzzles that focus on different letters of the alphabet (think Words With Double Z, Ends in E, Begins with A, etc.). All of the puzzles, and the answers, too, are in large print, making it easy for small hands to fill in the letters and sparing the eyes. I wish I'd had a puzzle book like this when I was growing up, but then perhaps it's just as well I didn't - I wouldn't have had time to help with the dishes.
