Opening: Grandad promised to take his grandchildren to the park today. But he needs some help getting ready. He’s lost a few things.
Summary: (from my library catalog) A brother and sister want to go to the playground with their grandfather, but they can’t leave until they find everything they need to take with them, in his colorful house. Help Grandad find all of his belongings in this search and find!

losthouseendpaperWhy I like this book: Duh! Haha! This book is a riot of color and barrels of fun! My adult son and I spent at least half an hour looking for a sock in one of the spreads (no spoilers!). There is so much more to find than just the objects Grandad needs! I know readers will enjoy this as much as I do (still haven’t found everything!).

losthouse1Resources/Activities: I would say the book provides this itself but go around the house or classroom and look for colors and objects that might get lost in one of the rooms, like this faded rose…
