KIRKUS REVIEW

The perceptive observer can unearth one, a few, or many words hidden in the configuration of one word. The names of flowers and fruit, months and days, animals and children are a few of the general categories chosen. There's an ""ox in box"", a ""cap in peach"" a ""cone, can, cane and an ace in ocean"". Contrasting colors outline the hidden words and focus the eye properly. Though the content is varied, it requires a consciousness of word composition rather than word sound well beyond the age level for which these pictures and general format would seem to have been designed. Herein lies the major flaw of the book. Third and fourth graders can benefit most from a game that is both instructive and enjoyable.
