Wonderful Wednesday: ABC Discovery!
|September 21, 2011||Posted by Miss Shari under Children's Literature, Education|
It’s Wednesday and the week is almost over. Today’s feature and Miss Shari’s latest find at the library is ABC Discovery by Izhar Cohen. This picture book /picture puzzle is similar to “Where’s Waldo?” but not inherently the same. Cohen has a great artistic ability to challenge the readers to find each word and corresponding picture.
The book is set up from A to Z each set is a list of words starting with that letter and a picture puzzle on the right for each word. Look closely and carefully some of the details are subtle yet in plain sight.
This book is a great challenge and good for building vocabulary, it enhances critical thinking skills, word identification and word & sound correlation. This book is perfect for “puzzle solvers, from six to sixty” and I would recommend it for elementary school classrooms (ages six to eight). I even had a good time reading it and trying to find the pictures in the puzzle. It could really spice up the “Letter of the Week”. So take the challenge…
