Book Review: Bible Sleuth-New Testament

My kids love puzzle books. They also love reading about the Bible. So I knew that Bible Sleuth: New Testament was going to be a hit in our house. Bible Sleuth is basically a Bible themed version of Where’s Waldo. The book has 14 full spread scenes from New Testament stores, along with about 8 different objects or characters to find in the spread. Just like Where’s Waldo, the scenes include a variety of people and¬†happenings, many of which look alike, so the puzzles are actually a bit challenging. I think this is a good book for 7-12 year old range. My 5 year old got too¬†frustrated, but my 8 year old enjoyed it, though she couldn’t always find everything on the pages.

Some of the scenes include: The Birth of Jesus, The Wedding at Cana, Jesus Clears the Temple, Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand, and The Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Each scene includes a verse about the scene, along with the Scripture reference for the Bible story.

Like I said, my kids did enjoy the book, but the only complaint I had was that the artwork wasn’t very crisp, so it wasn’t always easy to discern all the hidden pictures from similar looking items. Even I had a challenging time since many pictures look so similar. But, all in all, the kids enjoyed it, and it’s a fun little book to bring along on a road trip, plane flight, or even when sitting and waiting for an appointment, since it keeps them occupied for quite some time.
