Candlewick Press ~ For Your “Something To Read” Gifts! {+ Giveaway!}

Candlewick Press Books

I received product from Candlewick Press to facilitate this post.  All opinions are my own.

Something they want, something they need.  Something to wear, and something to READ!  Have you heard about this four gift Christmas suggestion?  Whether you follow that or add a few extras, it’s always a great idea to include some reading materials as gifts.  Anything that encourages the kids to get off the screens and into books is a great idea.

Candlewick Press Books

So today, we’re highlighting some of our favorite Candlewick Press options for our 2018 Holiday Gift Guide.  We’ve got choices for kids of all ages so get those lists out!

Candlewick Press Where's Waldo? The Spectacular Spotlight Search

Where’s Waldo? The Spectacular Spotlight Search

I grew up with Waldo books and am delighted to see they are still popular!  And this new Where’s Waldo? The Spectacular Spotlight Search is a fantastic choice.  Just when you thought you’d mastered finding Waldo, this fun spin comes along.  In an innovative, all-paper design that simulates a traveling spotlight beam, each scene is completely dark until the reader slides the included wand underneath to “light up” a small section. The trick behind this is to carefully move the magic slider around until the right spot is revealed.  Are you up for the challenge!?
