Kregel Presents: Bible Detective: A Puzzle Search Book by Peter Martin, Peter Kent
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.
What an awesome book for Children to learn the Bible, and how people lived back in ancient times.
The cover is brightly colored to draw the Child's eye. Once you open the book you begin a great fun filled journey.
To begin with their is a picture of a fox hidden in each of the double page activities. An example would be Slaves in Egypt. Verse Genesis 37-50; Exodus 1. Then there is some of the scripture up in the left hand part of the picture. All around the outside of the picture is some facts...Bricks were made from mud packed into a mold and turned out. Find 5 men using a brick mold...etc. These continue all around. Kind of like an Eye Spy, but with more.
There are 17 different Puzzle Searches, and in the back there are answers. There is also an index to help.
My boys ages 5 and 7 needed help with the words, but spent several hours going over the picture. Excitedly they would point to the answers. I can see then asking to use this over and over! I loved it!
I received this book from Kregel Publications, and was not required to give a positive review.
