About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Bible Detective book review

My Thoughts:
Bible Detective is an engaging book for all ages.  The girls (ages 9 and 14) and I had a blast reading the Bible stories together and then searching for pictures in the double paged scenes.  It's appealing for all ages because, although most of the items are easy to locate, some of the pictures can a bit more challenging!  Whether you are reading the Bible stories for the first time or the 20th time, we can all learn something new.  For example, how much do you know about flax and threshing sledges?  That information, along with much, much more is in here!  Educational and fun, I'm quite sure you and your child will truly enjoy learning and puzzling together while reading Bible Detective.  My daughter is planning on bringing it with her on our Thanksgiving holiday.  I hope she invites me to join her again on her search.:)   

Young detectives will never tire of this picture-search puzzle book. Readers can pore over 17 cleverly illustrated scenes of Bible events to find the answers to the questions posed on each page. 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 the book. Warning: may be addictive!
