Bible Sleuth: New Testament by Jose Perez Montero (Illustrator)

Book Description:  Based on the Where’s Waldo concept and adapted for Bible themes, Bible Sleuth: New Testament introduces 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.

My Thoughts:  Children in the 1990's had fun with books like Where's Waldo and I Spy.  Now Tyndale Publishers with illustrator Jose´Pe´rez Montero have created the Bible Sleuth for the kids of today to enjoy.  
In this book; however, one must find Bible characters the are under the "look for" column on the opposite page.
The book has 29 pages with lots of drawings and they are all about the Bible.  For example, on page 9 the pages are about Jesus Clears the Temple.  This is also somewhat like the "old" can you find it pictures.
There is a short explanation/verse from the Bible about the story and  a  Bible reference.
I thought this would be an easy book.  But, honestly, as an adult the pictures were a challenge for find.  This is good!  The pictures are great for keeping children entwined for an extended length of time.  
However, we did realize that it may be best for each child to have a book so that arguing about the pictures is not such a challenge for the adult.  😊
The age range for this book is 4-7 years old but kids 8-10 liked it as well.
This book makes a nice gift or just a nice book to put in your child's "bored summer box."
