My Review:
This was a bit different. Good but different. Filled with colorful illustrations to match the different, this is a good children’s book. The riddles take different things from through out the Bible and turn them into questions with clean, funny answers to follow. I read some of these to my 6 and 7 year old and they would giggle and laugh.

I think this book is a fun and entertaining way to get kids interested in the Bible and Bible studies. It is definitely a 4 star book worth having in your home or church for children to read any time!
