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!

I took a look at this book along with my 3-year-old little book expert Addy. Although she is younger than what I consider to be the target audience for the book, seek and circles are some of her favorite books and she’s very impressive with them. She is often able to find the hidden images faster than I can! Having said that, while she enjoyed the book and was able to easily find many of the images, some of them were confusing even for me to find. Unlike some other hidden object books, there weren’t any pictures to show what the object looks like that you are expected to find. In most cases this wasn’t a big deal but in some it wasn’t clear what the object was. For example, one page asked to find 12 priests but there wasn’t anything to clearly identify which people were the priests. Another page asked to find some kings but there was the same issue. Others were very simple like looking for an animal or a type of weapon. It’s a book that I think younger children could attempt but unless they are old enough to read it requires the help of an older sibling or parent.
The book itself is made of sturdy board and can be written on with dry-erase markers so that you can circle the objects as you find them. The pictures span across most of the page with a column on one side to identify the images you are intended to find. There is also a very brief clip to describe the biblical story that is being pictured. Even though the scenes are all of war, there is no blood in any of the pictures.
Overall I’d consider it a fun book for kids, but feel it could be improved by more clearly identifying some of the hidden objects or adding a sample image to the description so that younger kids can seek independently.

I saw this one and thought about getting it. However, I decided upon `The Storm-Tossed Family`
