SEEK AND FIND BIBLE STORIES by Carl Anker Mortensen

SEEK AND FIND BIBLE STORIES

Age Range: 6 - 9

KIRKUS REVIEW

In the style of Where’s Waldo?, a modern-day boy named Mike is camouflaged within busy illustrations of well-known Bible stories featuring dozens of tiny and similarly clad characters for sharp-eyed young readers to peruse. Each spread includes a large illustration filled with buildings, people and minuscule details, a brief paragraph summarizing the particular story, related questions directing the reader to find additional people or items in the illustration and a short Bible verse. The volume includes 14 stories from the Old Testament and 14 from the New, with each section followed by a more difficult quiz page with single items that can be found somewhere in any of the illustrations in that section. The busy visual depictions of the stories are chock-full of characters and tiny details, including some items that were not around in biblical times, such as helium balloons, a modern-style traffic sign and roller skates. Purists may object to a contemporary boy (and irrelevant objects) inserted into biblical scenes, but many children who seek the mental challenge of this format will find this fascinating. (Picture book/religion. 6-9)
