Genre: Picture Book
What did you like about the book? Sharp-eyed readers must seek and find 50 objects within nine double page spreads depicting scenes of the inside of a city’s buildings, a hospital, a library, a shopping mall, a parking lot, a movie theater, a cruise ship, a museum, and a gym. Ten of the objects can be found, as in the Where’s Waldo series, in each spread. The giant format of the book, 10 7/8” wide and 15 3/4” tall, and the sturdy board pages make this a perfect book to share together. Although there are four different illustrators, the bold colors and graphic style remain consistent throughout. A very fun book!
