After reviewing a book for preschoolers and first graders, here is Word Detective:
130 Games and Puzzles to Improve Spelling for second graders, ages 7 to 8.

To help enhance the young students’ vocabulary, the author has put together a list of 200 spelling words, through 130 engaging games and puzzles.
They are organized in the following chapters: Family, Friends, School, Animals, Park, Colors and Numbers, Feelings, Home, everyday words, fun words, and putting it all together.
As a fun extra thing, the book starts with a mystery. As the students find letters with a magnifying glass throughout the book, they can solve this mystery! Hence the title, Word Detective.
