Super sleuths will have hours of fun finding ancient people and objects in this treasure trove of fabulously detailed pictures from the world of the Bible
Young detectives will never tire of this picture-search puzzle book. Readers can pore through 17 cleverly illustrated scenes of events from the life of Jesus to find the answers to the questions posed on each page. Some puzzles involve looking for details of everyday life, and others highlight things that happened in the Bible stories—offering hours of fun to readers as they search for the answers, as well as scores of animals, birds, and even insects. As they exercise their brains solving the puzzles, they'll also become real experts on the fascinating setting of some of the Bible's greatest stories. With lots to find, this kind of picture book is particularly great for reluctant readers and visual learners, helping all children gain key insights into the life of Jesus as they super-sleuth their way through the book. Warning: may be addictive!
Kristina5 Stars Out Of 5Fun and EducationalMarch 17, 2015KristinaQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5If your kids love I Spy books or Where's Waldo, they're sure to love Jesus Detective by Peter Martin and Peter Kent, too. Every two page spread features a snippet from a Bible story, a detailed illustration, and a border asking readers to search for specific things. I love that this latter feature teaches kids a bit about life in Bible times. For example, in the story of Zaccheaus: "Zaccheaus' ill-gotten weath meant he had a luxury lifestyle. Spot 3 house servants;" "Those with riches had to lock them away. Find a wall safe;" "A luxury feast might include veal - from a 'fatted calf.' Spot 2 plates of roast meat."
Jesus Detective stories cover lots of bits of Jesus' life, from his birth to the Pentecost. The back of the book has an answer key.
