* Can You See What I See? Toyland Express! Book Review and Giveaway




The girls and I love our collection of Walter Wick "I Spy" 
and "Can You See What I See?" books. 


"E" frequently reads her I Spy books as a way to wind down at bedtime. 
We were thrilled when our friends at Scholastic books and Walter Wick's office contacted
us to review his latest and greatest book,
"Can You See What I See? Toyland Express!" 


In Mr. Wick's eigth title in his bestselling search and find series, 
we follow the life story of a little toy train from it's beginning in a workshop, 
as a gift from a toy store, to a beloved toy and finally to the attic, 
only to be rescued at a yard sale and brought to life again in a new home.
There are over 250 hidden objects to find as the train transforms along it's journey.

"E" has always wondered how Mr. Wick makes his book 
and really enjoyed watching this behind the scenes video.


You may recall that we've tried to make our own "I Spy" books and photo shoots


"E" (age 8) and "C" (age 4) really enjoyed this book and some of the 
hidden objects really challenged them (as well as their parents)!


"E"s Grandpa D came over for Christmas and enjoyed the challenge of 
searching and finding the hidden objects in the book as well. 

So much so, that the girls are making him his own, 
homemade "I Spy" search and find book for his birthday this weekend.
(Shh... don't tell, it's a surprise!)

and...I have a surprise for you, my lovely readers, as well!
