Word Search: Classics

The Invention of Hugo CabretThis 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!

Word Search: Presenting Buffalo Bill

Presenting Buffalo BillWhen Can­dace Flem­ing chose William “Buf­fa­lo Bill” Cody as a sub­ject for her lat­est biog­ra­phy, she was intrigued by his sto­ry­telling, exag­ger­a­tion, propen­si­ty for mar­ket­ing, and the truth of his life’s adven­tures and accom­plish­ment. After read­ing her book, we’re intrigued by the man, not the leg­end, who would most like­ly be using Twit­ter and Insta­gram to pro­mote his Wild West shows today. If you love puz­zles and games, we hope you have a good time solv­ing this 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.

Have fun!
