Does anyone know of anything like Where's Wally but for younger kids? We are well past finding the mouse in the That's Not My series, so was hoping to move onto something a little more difficult. Any other book series with hidden objects?

Animalia by graeme base. Awesome pictures and a hidden boy on each page. My boys loved it from about 2 yo.

I remember there were some easier (and cheaper) ones that I had when I was really little - called things like Hunt for Hector, Look for Lisa, Search for Susie, Find Freddie...

I managed to find one on Amazon here and there seem to be a couple on ebay as well (edit: only the Hector ones are international, there seem to be some of the others eg Search for Sam, Find Frankie, Look for Laura in Australia on ebay, search for the author Anthony Tallarico).

There is a series called "Look and Find" - we've got about a dozen of them; they're great!

There's the I Spy series.  Just small paperbacks or sometimes hardbacks.  They usually have picture supports so non-readers can also find the object in the main page.  I keep 10-12 in my classroom for my prep kids.  They love them!



This is usual double page spread that gives you an idea.  Apparently there's a board book version too.  I've seen them in BigW and Kmart, but I must admit most of my copies were found in 2nd hand stores!
