Big Foot Spotted at World-Famous Landmarks Review by Amanda Hopkins

Big Foot Spotted at World-Famous Landmarks is a seek and find book that takes us around the world to some of the most famous landmarks. But not only are we looking for Big Foot around the world, but we are also able to learn fun facts about each landmark as we visit them thanks to D.L. Miller.

Big Foot Spotted at World-Famous Landmarks is a hardcover book that is filled with color pictures. We start out learning about Big Foot, who he is and the names he goes by. There is a fun little fact sheet at the beginning of the book that tells us about Big Foot and the stories that go along with him.

Big Foot Spotted at World-Famous Landmarks takes us around the world to see different famous locations like the Pyramid of Giza, Great Wall of China, the Statue of Liberty and Stonehenge. Each section starts out with a 2-page spread on the location. There are fun facts, like, did you know there were assigned seats at the Colosseum? There are colorful pictures on the topic as well as cartoons.

After learning the fun facts on the location, we have a 2-page spread on actually seeking and finding Big Foot! These pages are cartoon drawn pictures where we need to find one Big Foot, one Legendary Footprint and other items that might be seen around these landmarks. These will range in number from 5-11 of each item you need to find.

In the back of the book, you will find a 2-page answer sheet that shows the answers to finding Big Foot and the legendary footprint. This does not indicate where all the other items are hidden, but that was just fine with us.

My kids loved going around the world and seeing historical landmarks while finding Big Foot. The information was bite-sized pieces that was easy for the kids to take in. We loved these small bits of information because the kids were able to take it in during one sitting. The little kids would take that and go, but the older kids would find some bits of information more interesting and take that on as an independent learning time. I was happy to see them find interest in areas and taking it upon themselves to learn more about it.

If you want a fun way to learn about the different famous landmarks from around the world while seeking to find Big Foot, this is a book you will want to grab! We have used it for all ages, from 3 up to mom and dad.
