The "Waldo" books, which require the reader-viewer to find the peripatetic backpacker amid thousands of tiny, scurrying figures, hold a fascination for young readers. And "Waldo" also builds reading skills. Here's how.In order to find the Waldo character, the child must focus on the page, recall what he looks like from the first page, and compare and contrast that memory image with each figure on the page.Thus attention span, recall and visual discrimination -- three essential skills of reading -- are nurtured.

EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. -- "Where's Waldo?"Well, he's not in the Springs Public School library.Not anymore.Not since Kenneth Coleman, a fourth-grader at the East Hampton school, came home with the wildly popular book "Where's Waldo?" from the school library and said: "Mom, look at this!"What "this" was, said his stepmother, Shirley Coleman, was a tiny drawing of a woman lying on the beach wearing a bikini bottom but no top, and being nudged in the back by a boy with an ice-cream cone. "She's jumping up and her breast is hanging out," said Shirley Coleman.

Kasi Lemmons' movie is called Talk to Me, but what it really does is sing to you, in the argot and cadences of soul, jazz, rock and rhythm and blues. This fact-based story of the Washington, D.C., broadcast personality Ralph Waldo "Petey" Greene Jr. (Don Cheadle) and his partnership and friendship with WOL-AM program manager Dewey Hughes (Chiwetel Ejiofor) spills over with a musical energy that makes even familiar scenes jiggle and bounce. And Cheadle is astonishing. Whether he's dancing in his underwear with his ex-stripper girlfriend or pulling off a Richard Pyror-esque stand-up confession, he makes you feel that Petey's heart pounds to a funky beat.

MEXICO CITY -- As sales gimmicks go, "11.3 pesos" doesn't quite have the ring of "99 cents." But Mexican shoppers such as Jaime Plata don't seem to care. Savings, not slick marketing, draw him to Waldo's Dolar Mart de Mexico, this nation's largest chain of so-called dollar stores. On a recent afternoon, the nightclub owner trolled the aisles of a Waldo's store in the capital's middle-class Anahuac neighborhood. Bottles of apple juice, at two for 11.3 pesos, or about $1.05, were piled in his cart, along with candles and picture frames.

LOS ANGELES - I usually don't pay much attention to business stories in the news, but this story is different. A major national chain of department stores has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. This is particularly alarming considering that after filing for Chapter 11, most chain stores close faster than you can say Woolworth's. We will call the chain JMart. Perhaps for some Americans this announcement does not mean much. For people who live in Beverly Hills or Martha's Vineyard, this is just another story on the financial pages.
