Kids love to hunt for things, that is why the Where’s Waldo books have been so popular. We enjoy a Christian storybook that is like the Waldo books called Seek and Find Bible Stories by Carl Anker Mortensen. Meet Mike, and spend time looking for him in the illustrations of many Bible stories.
These illustrations are detailed covering two pages for each story with the Bible verse included. Besides finding Mike, children are given a list of questions after each story and encouraged to find the answers in the illustrations.
Here is a list of a few of the Bible stories included: Creation, Israeli slaves in Egypt, Noah’s ark, Samson, Jesus’ birth and the Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost.
At the end of both the Old Testament and the New Testament illustrations there is a page with additional questions that encourage kids to go back through the Testament they just finished.
What fun you will have with your family. The Seek and Find Bible Stories book would be great for a home schooler, or a family devotional. Gather around the book with your kids and see who can be the first one to find Mike. Have fun taking turns answering the questions and finding the answer in the illustration.
Used copies are available on Amazon for just 50 cents. Now that’s a deal.
