Reviews - What do customers think about Guess What? Story Bible?
perfect for young readers May 8, 2005
The illustrations by Paul and Alice Sharp are fantastic. Tracy Harrast's chapters from "How the World Began" to "Your Home in Heaven" winsomely cover the story of the Bible from A to Z. My youngest son loves this book. The "Seek and Find" decoder makes this an especially fun book for young readers. Highly recommended!
Have a reluctant reader? Jan 11, 2005
I do. My Kindergartner loves school, but is not the biggest fan of reading yet. He reads well - he just doesn't want to do it! I have been searching for the best "First Bible" for him, and knew this one was perfect. The secret treasure words hidden in the scriptures entice him to read. He says "My Bible is so cool!" The concept also serves to remind me that the Bible is full of treasures if I will only take the time to dig them out.
Now my son begs to read his Bible so he can search for code words to read to us. Of course we're glad for the renewed interest in reading, but more importantly we are thrilled by his love for God's word!
Putting excitement and adventure into Bible stories Oct 10, 2004
The "Guess What? Story Bible" is a unique and fun book of Bible stories for children. What makes it unique are the many words hidden in the text. A child can place the decoder that comes with the book over the hidden word and read it. Now reading and learning about the Bible story can be an adventure. Of course the first concern many parents would have is how easy is it to lose the special decoder? The book has a special place for the decoder so it can be returned there and stored securely. However, if it does become lost then a quick trip to the hardware store to pick up some red cellophane and you have a new decoder; maybe not as fancy as the fish that comes with the book, but totally functional. Brightly colored illustrations add to the appeal of the book and together with the adventure of the secret words it makes this a very highly recommended book.
