Review: Bible Detective
Bible Detective is a hard cover puzzle search book recommended for children ages 5-9. The book contains 17 different illustrated stories from the Bible: Noah, the Good Herdsman, Abraham's Nomadic Encampment, Slaves in Egypt, Moses The Law and the Tabernacle, Farming the Land, A Battle Against the Philistines, King Solomon's Jerusalem, An Assyrian Attack, Exiles in Babylon, A Census in Bethlehem, A Schoolboy in Nazareth, A Fishing Town on Lake Galilee, The Temple Courtyard, The Death of Jesus, Peter Preaches About Jesus, Preaching in Corinth, and The Port of Caesarea. Each page has a short story on it and several items with descriptions for the child to search and find in the picture. For example on the Port of Caesarea page there is a short paragraph about Paul and his preaching. Some of the items to find are Paul leaving for Rome, 2 dockside cranes, prisoners n chains, a giant steering oar, a family struggling with their luggage etc...Solutions to each page are included at the back of the book.
You can purchase Bible Detective for $14.99 here.

My boys love puzzle search books and it was really nice to see one that is Bible themed and contains both the Old and New Testaments. The illustrations were very well done. I like the paragraph and descriptions of the items you are searching for. Finding some of the items is very challenging, even for mom.
I received a complimentary copy of Bible Detective for the purpose of writing a fair and honest review. I received no other compensation.
