Waldo is back in a made for Halloween special and although he gives a lot of tricks, they sure feel like treats when you solve them! This edition includes a Glow-In-The-Dark slider that reveals hidden in the dark pictures, only adding to the mind boggling fun. This book will last well through this holiday and into the ones for years to come. Every time you pick up a Waldo book, the search begins anew. Hours of fun! I love this book although it makes my eyes see crisscross. All kidding aside, this book bolsters eye strength and concentration and has just the comfort appeal of our beloved Waldo, his striped clothes and the wonderful cast of characters.
Gilly the Giraffe Self Esteem Activity Book: A Therapeutic Story With Creative Activities to Help Children Aged 5-10 by Dr. Karen Treisman
This book puts the B in Brave! Such a useful and accessible book. Just reading the book is inspiring and has helped me to focus on how I can facilitate a positive learning environment for the students and the teachers by incorporating the story and ideas into my in-school yoga classes. The story is one that flows well by adding yoga poses, breathing activities and short meditations and the added applied practices offer many useful ways of building self-esteem activities into the classroom.
Dr. Treisman brings another part of the world to many readers-with new words and ways. This is a great book about diversity. It is colorful, eye-opening and totally relateable. The story promotes creative problem solving, by offering a view from another angle. It is like a game of Statues, where one person sets themselves up as a statue; the next person walks around, looking at the shape from different angles, and then fits themselves into the structure, which is a fun way of promoting this way of thinking.
I highly recommend incorporating these activities throughout the day. Practicing increases personal growth and strength.
Anther great book by Dr. Triesman is Presley Pug, check out my review here.

Waldo is timeless! As a matter of fact, my 17 year old son and I just went to a bookstore and when I finally found him, sprawled on the floor in a corner, he was searching for Waldo!
I love the gimmick for this new Where’s Waldo; it adds a innovative challenge to the quest. This book requires a lot of patience but I just could not give up until I had found every Waldo, Wenda, Wizard Whitebeard and Odlaw and the truly mind boggling “one character in each scene that is carrying a flashlight.” A must have for every Waldo fan, young and old! Here is a link to an introductory video for the book. Check it out for yourself!
This book would make a perfect gift for the holidays and every day. It offers not only hours, but years of entertainment.
¡Olé Namaste! Eve Costarelli
