"The God Puzzle" by Valerie Ackermann

Puzzles have many pieces that fit together to make one big picture.  In her new book, Valerie Ackermann helps children ages 7 - 12, see how the Bible "pieces" fit together to become the full picture, with meaning for them.

A workbook for the Bible? Don't kids have enough to do for school? That might be your first thought when you see "The God Puzzle," but you really need to look further. It shouldn't be a chore to learn about the Bible, it should be a delight! Inside these pages are colorful illustrations, Bible verses to read, puzzles, things to talk and pray about, "prayer letters to God," and so much more. This book offers the opportunity for children to really begin to enjoy learning about Bible doctrines, drr how the Bible works and fits, and helps create habits that will last a lifetime.

This is such a fun, wonderful way to learn about the Bible. Questions like, "Who is God?" "What was the Tabernacle?" and "How do I study the Bible?" offer children, and their parents, the opportunity to see God's Word can have special meaning for each of us. I really enjoyed studying along with the book's characters, and will purchase copies to give as gifts. It will make a wonderful tool to have in your library, or to give to the youngsters in your life. I received my review copy from Litfuse Publicity Group in exchange for participation in the blog tour.
