5 Great Gift Ideas for Teacher Appreciation Week

Habitual thinking goes out the window.

It's an unusual treasure hunt with surprising tasks. You'll be caught up in the thrill of the chase, the A-ha! of discovery, and then slip with reckless delight into an avalanche of new creativity.

It's all ahead for you within the pages of The Pocket Scavenger.

It's an adventure-filled treasure hunt that leads you in collecting 72 random items - something miniature, a green stain, an envelope, something from the year you were born, urban fossils...

Once an item is found, follow the task at the bottom of the page. Remove a section, make it pretty, scribble on it, create a funny character, add blobs of glue, conceal it somewhere...

Along with basic discovery, open the Pocket Scavenger and you'll try new things. New adventure is literally everywhere you look!

    Review of The Pocket Scavenger
    Posted 11/30/2013 by Jenny Slade

    I can see how this book might be awesome for just the right kid, but mine wasn't that kid. Seems a little too esoteric, more like homework than fun.

    This was purchased for a 12 year old girl. The book has kept her engaged and excited for days. It has been fun, silly and challenging for her imagination. This is a great book.
