Children’s Corner — Seek-And-Circle Bible Battles (One Big Story)

25 Oct

Seek, circle, and learn!

Maybe you’ve heard about the battle of Jericho and David’s battle against Goliath, but what about the day the sun stood still? Inside this book, explore six of the major battles from the Bible, filled with dozens of items for you to seek and circle! Every battle scene also has something to tell us about God’s plan for His people through His Son, Jesus.

For an added challenge, look for the six pieces of the armor of God as you explore each battle.

Use a wipe-on, wipe-off marker to seek-and-circle over and over again!

My Impressions:

The Old Testament is filled with battles — battles for freedom for God’s people and battles that were brought about by the people’s disobedience. Regardless of the cause, God’s hand was in the midst of the conflict. Seek-And-Circle Bible Battles captures all the action of six battles and provides an interactive way for your child to engage with God’s word. There’s plenty of action, but nothing gory, as your child searches for specific objects. For example, in the Battle of Jericho, there are chickens, a goose, and a campfire to circle. Each two-page scene vividly depicts the scripture. There is an added bonus as your child learns about the ongoing battle that Christians face in their day to day lives and the way God provides protection through His armor. A Christ Connection ties Jesus to the Old Testament scripture. This book is for both children and their parents, opening discussions about God and can be enjoyed over and over with wipe-off markers. I think boys especially will enjoy Seek-And-Circle Bible Battles, but I recommend it for all kids ages 5-10.

Recommended.

Audience: kids and their parents.

My Impressions:

Mom I’m bored! I bet we have all heard that refrain at least one or two (or a hundred) times over the course of school breaks and summers. I know when my kids were young I did. How I wish I had had a book like The Adventure Bible Book of Daring Deeds And Epic Creations way back when! This book is geared for kids ages 9-10 and has 60 fun activities and crafts that will keep them engaged. Each activity has a list of what you need and instructions on how to do it. It also has a statement to think about along with a scripture reference that ties into the activity. Some activities are perfect for rainy day crafting while others will get your kids up, out, and moving.  I loved the variety of the activities, but I really loved that each one pointed to God and His work in the world and in our lives. The Book of Daring Deeds and Epic Creations is great for kids and parents to connect with each other and to start conversations about the world around them and the God Who created it.

Recommended.

Audience: kids ages 8-10
