Enjoy these interactive jigsaw puzzles!

Big Ben, London, England

There are 2 different puzzle websites that I can envision using for this:

I used this to create the above puzzle. The one above is free, and has some interactive sound during play and clapping at the end, plus some tools like increasing the number of pieces to make puzzles more challenging, a timer, and full screen view if selected.


This one requires a paid subscription to be embedded on our website. This is the one that you had found, Donna, with a sweet kid friendly appearance. To see how this Big Ben puzzle looks with, click here.

* One thing I wanted to note: both apps are public, so technically our puzzles could be found and played on their websites, too. Both apps include a place to credit the photographer/artist/illustrator, and Charlesbridge, but I just wanted to make you aware of that.

Wings to SOAR

by Tina Athaide

A historically relevant middle-grade novel-in-verse about a girl's resiliency when faced with hatred towards refugees. Readers of The Night Diary and Inside Out and Back Again shouldn't miss out.

It's 1972 and Viva's Indian family has been expelled from Uganda and sent to a resettlement camp in England, but not all of them made the trip. Her father is supposed to meet them in London, but he never shows up. As they wait for him, Viva, her mother, and her sister get settled in camp and try to make the best of their life there.

Just when she is beginning to feel at home with new friends, Viva and her family move out of the camp and to a part of London where they are not welcome. While grappling with the hate for brown-skinned people in their new community, Viva is determined to find her missing father so they can finish their move to Canada. When it turns out he has been sponsored to move to the United States, they have to save enough money to join him.

Told in verse, Wings to Soar follows a resilient girl and the friendships she forges during a turbulent time.
