Bible Detective Blog Tour

Hey everyone, the kids in our household love playing detective. And they love Bible stuff. So I was sure they would enjoy this next book I got for review from Kregel titled Bible Detective.

Where's Waldo? meets the Bible in this cleverly illustrated picture-search puzzle book for young readers
Young detectives can pore over more than 17 scenes of Bible events to find the answers to questions posed on each page in this brilliantly imagined seek-and-find puzzle book. Each two-page spread, accompanied by pertinent and engaging Bible trivia, is brightly and engagingly illustrated, with the main scene taking up the center of the page and the items to "seek" decorating the edges. Some puzzles involve looking for details of everyday life, others highlight things that happened in the Bible stories—offering hours of fun to readers as they search for the answers. With lots to find, this kind of picture book is particularly great for reluctant readers and visual learners, helping all children get an overview of the Bible's history and content as they super-sleuth their way through to the end.

Let me tell you, this book is very addictive!! The warning is absolutely true:) After receiving the book I gave it to my little sister, M. She is eleven years old and I know it was a little bit below her age level, but she enjoyed it all the same. She had to sit down and do all the search and find puzzles right away. She got through it pretty fast, within about 15 minutes, but again, she is eleven years old. The recommended age level is 5-9 years.

It was pretty fun though. I went through some of it with her and we had fun racing to see who could find the objects first. And, not only is this book fun and entertaining, but it is also educational. There are little facts throughout the pages which will help a child learn things. This would make a great gift for a child or grandchild. Check it out!!

According to FTC Disclosure, I received a copy of this book through Kregel Blog Tours. I did not receive any monetary compensation.

This looks great! It's nice to have a relevant and quiet activity for young ones during a bible study or discussion with older children. This looks like just the thing! Thank you for the review and recommendation. ZuZu
