I am working on making a series of puzzle books that will take place in different countries around the world. Each book will have various activities, like answering a series of questions and using one letter from each answer to spell out a word, doing word searches, logic puzzles, and crossword puzzles. The goal is to solve clues that will help stop a thief who is trying to steal something important from that country.
It will be geared to elementary school age kids. They’d need to be reading on at least about the second grade level to do it independently, but non-readers could do it with a parent or older sister reading the clues and helping them find the information.
It’s designed with the intent of being used with a basic country book from the library (books like “Spotlight on Peru”), but I’m creating a short “About Peru” section so that you can still do it even if you don’t have access to a book like that.
I’m looking for somebody with a child or children in elementary school who would like to give it a try. I’ve had my older daughter try it and reworked it a bit based on her feedback, so I’d like some feedback from somebody else. If you’d be interested, tell me in the comments, and I’ll pick somebody at random.
Thanks so much!
