Kind of like "Finding Waldo"

Bible Sleuth: New Testament is based on the Where's Waldo concept and has been adapted for Bible themes, introducing young readers to stories about Jesus and the early church, while engaging them in seek-and-find activities. Perfect for young Bible sleuths, complete with activities that take readers back to Biblical times. 

Recommended for ages 4 to 7 years.

Illustrated By: Jose Perez Montero

Available on Amazon and other retailers
Our Take:
Usually when I review a kids book, I like to share what my kids thought, as well as, my take.

This is a hardback book, with 14 different finding challenges. Each challenge covers a two page spread and contains a box off to the side with a story from the New Testament that corresponds with the picture.  The "looker" will have about eight different characters to hunt for, well hidden among the scenery. My daughter is nine going on ten and although she was able to find them all, some were not easy to locate.

What I liked about this book - 
Hours of entertainment, a Scripture reference to go along with the story, hardback cover so it will last longer, the overall challenge. Although the description says 4 to 7 years, I think even kids a few years older will enjoy this seek and find.

What I didn't like - 
Some of the characters are in the center of the book, in the crease where the pages meet. Those characters are extremely hard to find, and sometimes they are split between both pages.  My nine year old had a hard time with these until I gave her that advice, then she was able to find them more easily.

Overall, this will provide plenty of fun for young children. 
I would recommend for ages 5-12.

I was blessed with a copy of this book from Tyndale Blogger Network. I was not asked to review this book positively and all opinions are my own.
