Bible Jumble for Kids
This book is for children ages eight to twelve years old but I think that adults will enjoy it too. Some of this I feel is hard for an eight year old, or maybe just my son, but my twelve year old daughter enjoys doing these fun jumbles. These Jumbles are challenging and I love the way the Bible is integrated into a fun puzzle book. I have used this is my Religious Education class and the kids really enjoy the challenge. This is a great way to incorporate the bible in a fun filled way. This is a great book to take with you on a long car ride or for some quick fun while waiting for your appointment. I would recommend this.

Does your child like to solve puzzles? Do they want to learn more about the Bible? Then Bible Jumbles might be what you are looking for! This is a neat little book containing 200 different Biblical puzzles to solve. There are six different types of puzzles in this book.Traditional Jumbles Mystery Person Jumbles Jumble Detective Jumble Criss-Cross Find the Jumbles Bible Passage Jumbles There is one puzzle per page and each puzzle has a scripture passage to look up to help you solve the puzzle, a box containing 5 clues and 5 jumbles to decipher. There is an answer key in the back of the book if you get stuck. This is for the 9-12 reading level. I personally think that many adults would love solving these puzzles as well.I love this book and will be using it with my 9 year old as part of our Bible time each day. I really like that there are scripture passages to look up to encourage Bible reading and not just solving the puzzle. The puzzles are short but challenging. This is totally portable and would be great to take along to a doctor appointment or anywhere you would have to wait and your child (or you!) need something to do! **I was provided a complimentary copy of Bible Jumble for Kids from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review**

Once I discovered that these puzzles were not meant to be done without a Bible in hand, I found the book to be very very enjoyable- my children will love the challenge, and I think it will be a great way to learn the facts of the Bible.*this book was provided to me by Tyndale House in exchange for my very HONEST review.

My husband loves to do the Jumble in the daily paper. He is amazingly fast too. Me.not so much. I have noticed that over the years I have gotten better, and I can usually figure out most of the words. Im just not very fast. Apparently my brain doesnt work in the same way. Honestly, Ive not been able to figure out how this skill would be valuable in real life, unless you count being really good at Scrabble as a life skill.My kids, especially my 10 year old daughter, like to do word puzzles. So I jumped at the chance to review the new Bible Jumble for kids published by Tyndale. The book contains classic jumbles, plus a couple of variations on the traditional format. But these jumbles have an extra twist: theyre Biblically themed. For example, Jumble #46 is Soliders Make Fun of Jesus (Matthew 27:27-31)There are additional clues in case you get stumped. The clues are given in random order to avoid accidentally seeing them. There is a final word to be unscrambled using select letters from the 5 jumbled words. In addition to the classic puzzles, there are Jumble Crosswords and Jumble Word Searches with a total of 200 puzzles in the book. I am very impressed with this book. The Jumbles are challenging, but not impossible. I love the way the Bible is integrated into this fun puzzle book. It definitely adds a higher purpose to the puzzles than improving your Scrabble game.This book was provided to me by Tyndale House Publishers for free to review. I was not compensated for this review.
