This month, we’re thinking about the classics, both old and new. They’re books that easily come to mind when you think of the books that are beloved by many, many readers. If you love puzzles and games, we hope you have a good time solving this Word Search.
This month, we’re adding an extra facet to our game. Each of the 26 words in the list is taken from the title of one of those classic books. When you’ve finished the Word Search, take a screen capture of your board and save it as a JPG. Then make a list of the book associated with each word on our list (you’ll have 26 book titles when you’re finished). Send us your completed board and book list by midnight on December 10, 2016, and we’ll choose one person at random from among the correct entries and send you three autographed books for your home or classroom library. Be sure to include your name, email, and mailing address (so we can send the books to you). We’ll announce the winner on Facebook on December 11, 2016. (You must be 14 years of age or older to send us an entry. Only one entry per person. Open to US residents only for postage expense reasons.)
To play the Word Search, simply use your mouse or touch pad to draw a line over your found words and the program will mark them off for you. Words can be found forwards, backwards, horizontally, vertically, and diagonally. As you find a word, it will be highlighted on the board and it will disappear from the word list.
You might enjoy doing this as a family activity over the Thanksgiving holiday. Have fun!
