- Now That Is Word Search: Animals, Body Parts, Country and Cities Edition
Welcome to the Now That Is Word Search Book series.
Within this series I am creating a range of fun and educational word search books for all age ranges.
Each individual book will eventually become part of a bumper book containing all the word search books in the series.
We all love word search, right? Whenever you have one in front of you, you cannot help but to try and find the word hiding right in front of you.
A word search, word find, word seek, word sleuth or mystery word puzzle is a word game that consists of the letters of words placed in a grid, which usually has a rectangular or square shape. The objective of this puzzle is to find and mark all the words hidden inside the box. The words may be placed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Often a list of the hidden words is provided, but more challenging puzzles may not provide a list. Many word search puzzles have a theme to which all the hidden words are related such as food, animals, or colors.
You will be glad to know that I have provided a hidden words list for you!
Word search puzzles (also known as WordSeek, WordFind, WonderWord, etc.) were originally attributed to Norman E. Gibat, an American from Norman, Oklahoma. In 1968, Gibat was looking for ways to engage readers with his publication Selenby Digest, when he unexpectedly invented what we now know as Word Search games. Although it is also believed that the Spanish puzzle creator Pedro Ocón de Oro was publishing "Sopas de letras" (Spanish "Soup of Letters") prior to that date.
