Today, we set out to do a Book Shelf Scavenger Hunt! I want to know what (where) you are hiding on your shelves.
You can print the scavenger hunt out here: Book Shelf Scavenger Hunt 2019
I did the hunt for books with my 5 year old first. It was a little difficult, but we made it work.
- A book with a girl’s name: Dick & Jane
- A book about nature: The Very Hungry Caterpillar –yeah, I gave him that one, it’s sort of about nature…
- Two blue books: Fish Jam and Sheep in a Jeep
- A book with an animal in the title: Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See
- Three books that start with the first letter of your name: A – All the World’s Asleep, Are You My Mother?, and A Baby is Born
- A book with a number in the title: Five Fast Tales
- A top favorite: Put It On The List
- A cookbook: Paula Deens My First Cookbook
- A book with a boy’s name: Luke Skywalker’s Amazing Story
- A book of poetry: 365 Fairy Tales: Stories and Rhymes – He said most poems rhyme so he’s counting it as a poetry book
- A dictionary: French-English Dictionary – This one he borrowed from my shelf 😉
- A book you haven’t read: Pokémon Book of Alola
- Last book on your shelf: Giant Fold-out Book of Machines
- A book made into a movie: The Lorax
- A scary/horror: The Beast
- Based on a true story: Apples and How They Grow – He chose this book because apples growing is a true story so… yep.
- Written by an author with your initials: Little Blue Truck – We didn’t have book with his first and last initials, but the author of this one (Alice) starts with an A
- Graphic Novel: Lego Batman Trouble in Gotham City
- Two with people on the cover: I am a Big Brother and I Love You Through and Through
- Collection of stories: Giant Book of Might Machines – He chose this one because there are different stories for the different vehicles
My kids had a lot of fun hunting for books. I think it was mainly the fact they got to scatter them through-out the house, but still.
I also worked it into our homeschool curriculum; reading, recognizing words/letter sounds, colors, etc. And of course, the giant stack of books to read… 24 to be exact.
I’ll go through my shelves later and share it to Social Media. =]
Don’t forget to show us your bookstacks after you’ve completed the scavenger hunt!
