Description

Bursting with 90 brain-teasing puzzles, 40 Bible passages and 30 concepts regarding God’s creation, this lesson-and-activity book will give kids aged 8-12 skills to investigate the Bible for themselves—like a real investigator! 

As kids apply logic and solve challenging puzzles, they will dive deeply into Scripture and examine the Bible’s account of creation, picking up lots of skills for reading and interpreting the Bible.

As well as lots of puzzles, there are journalling boxes for kids to make observations and reflect on what they have learned. 

Great for use in homeschools (independent work, morning time or Bible lessons) and also great for churches to use with kids. 

Fun for road trips and rainy days too!

If you have bought a copy of this book, and have more than one child using it, you have permission to print out further copies of the puzzles. You can find these by using the web link printed on page 261 of the book.

Author of the God Gave Us… series

When I was a kid, memorizing Scripture felt like a chore. Danika is on to something special with the Bible Investigators series… not only assisting kids to memorize a verse, but also to understand it and apply it to their lives—in a totally FUN way. I'm going to buy these engaging books for every preteen I know!

Bob Hartman

Author, Rhyming Bible and The Lion Storytelling Bible

I am always impressed when someone comes up with a new way of introducing children to the Bible. And this book is very impressive, indeed. Filled with puzzles and challenges, it invites readers to explore the themes of Genesis, helps them to come to grips with some very sophisticated theological ideas, and equips them with the tools to understand the rest of the Bible, too.

“We loved this”

I got this for my 8 year-old who is getting ready to do some independent Bible study. She loved the games and activities. I love how it walks children through the creation story, helping them build foundational Bible study skills, focusing on logic and critical thinking skills (2 very important things when it comes to reading the scripture)

“Rare, fun and faithful resource!”

Fun, interactive Biblical resources for the middle-school aged is rare, so I was really excited to see this new resource!

My daughter is 7 and a voracious reader, who is beginning to read the Bible for herself (apart from Bible storybooks). We are currently using this new resource as part of our morning time. Each lesson is quite long (probably more suitable for 10-12yos), so we only work through part of the lesson each time. The material is fun and engaging, and with some assistance, she was able to complete a puzzle and work out a Bible verse in one setting. It's helped her pick up skills to read and interpret the Bible, and we also loved the journalling spaces to write/draw our reflections. This is a wonderful resource to learn from the Word with my daughter this year.

I hope there will be more to come from this Bible investigators series!

Note: I've received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

“Absolutely FANTASTIC Resource for Independent Learning about the Bible”

This is one of my favourite children's books this year! It's jam-packed with puzzles that help children consider God's role in creation, including word searches, drawings, memorisation, and crosswords. Each section has quite a lot of written content, so I think the 8-12s age range is spot on, with perhaps a 6/7 year old with a good reading level able to engage with some of the puzzles. It's also great value for a 270-page activity book which will last ages! Absolutely would recommend it!

“Exciting Connections between Science & Faith”

I'm looking forward to incorporating this for my kids in our homeschooling time. We don't do too many workbooks, but they love when we do. It's very well-made & full of interesting facts. And I especially love how it all ties back in with the Bible.

“Incredible Resource!”

What a fun and incredible resource! The minute I handed this to my ten year old, she ran to the table to begin working out puzzles, and within minutes, had her Bible open next to her as she searched for answers. She absolutely loves it, and I love that the activities are building her biblical literacy and critical thinking skills as she studies the Word!

This has also made a great book to take out and about with us!

I hope there may be more to come in this series!

Thank you, @thegoodbookcompanyusa , for the gifted copy! It was a pleasure to review and provide my honest thoughts, and my kids are so excited to continue working through this book!

“Scripture Rich, Fun, and Engaging”

This book is full of fun and engaging activities that take students deep into the word of God and an understanding of creation. I love that they don’t sacrifice content and substance for fun and fluff but still are able to be engaging through a variety of different activities.

“Much needed”

This is a fantastic resource. As we all know, we learn much better when we write or share what we've learnt so this is wonderful for helping children fully own their knowledge of biblical truths.

It's fun, interactive and has a huge amount of variety.

“Great way to teach kids to read, learn, and trust the Bible!”

Our kids need to view God's Word as THE source of Truth, which means they also need to know how to read it. "Bible Investigators: Creation" is a fun way to get that journey started, and it sacrifices neither fun nor depth in the process. The content is true to God's Word, will cause your kids to think, is presented in a fun and interactive way, and most importantly teaches our children how to dive deep into the Bible - our only source of truth. Wonderful resource, Danika!

“Favorite over here”

My 11 year old daughter is in love with this book. She finds puzzles fun and entertaining and has been collecting books that include them but this one beats them all. She loves the variety of activities and the fact that she is learning about God in the process. As a parent I I love that it is written so conversationally and engaging. It holds her attention and genuinely gets her excited about diving into scripture which is a big win in my book.
