Hello, friends! We have a special bonus review for you today: Priddy Books’s line of Wipe-Clean Activities books, including their newest, Spooky Halloween!
These envelope-sized spiral-bound books are filled with activities that allow kids to express their imagination and challenge their brains. There are puzzles, word searches, and plenty of opportunities for creativity, like designing monsters and Jack-o-lanterns.
These were fun! Each title has dozens of activities to complete, and comes with a little mini dry-erase pen, so kids can doodle and solve to their heart’s content, then wipe it down and start over as many times as they want. The books themselves are sturdy, and a good size for small hands and traveling, though the oblong shape combined with the spiral binding did make it hard to draw on the top of the page at times; the book would either slide a bit on a flat surface, or tip over if held at an angle. Still, JJ and I had a lot of fun; she’s a bit young for some of the puzzles, but loved the creative-drawing aspects and simpler mazes and connect-the-dots-type puzzles. These titles would be great for road trips, plane rides, or rainy-day activities, and we liked them a lot. Baby Bookworm approved!
