Can You See What I See? Toyland Express #RAFFLECOPTER #GIVEAWAY (3 Winners!)

My boys love books where you can find hidden objects, and lately they’ve been engrossed in the new search-and-find picture puzzle book: Can You See What I See? Toyland Express, by Walter Wick. Here’s a description of this fabulous book:
Can You See What I See? Toyland Express, the eighth title in the bestselling search-and-find series, follows the life of a toy train from the workshop to the attic, only to be rescued at a yard sale and brought to life once again in a new home. As readers search for more than 250 hidden objects, they will also notice how the train takes on various transformations along its journey.
I became really interested in this book when I saw the following video showing how the author made this book. It’s really fascinating! Please watch!

Check out the beautiful photography and colors in this books!


My son Austen is especially enamored with this book. Whenever I realize I haven’t heard his voice in a while, I’ll look over and discover that he’s looking for hidden objects in Toyland Express! He just loves the challenge of finding the items on each page. We love to do it together, too. This delightful book would make a great holiday gift for the children in your life!
