Who's Who and Where's Where In The Bible for Kids

Who's Who and Where's Where in the Bible for Kids is a good place to get your pre-teens learning over one hundred facts about people and places in the Bible. It is written by Stephen M. Miller with cartoon art by Corey Godbey. Just under the name of the person or place being discussed, you will find a pronunciation key, what the word means, and where to find it in the Bible. To add a little interesting side note, there are cartoon characters placed on most every page. There are maps with notes about important cities and beautifully detailed photos and artwork of scenes from the Bible. You will find all sorts of little facts like: What it was like shopping in Jerusalem, where the holy places are in Jerusalem, when there was killer hail, and much, much more.

What I Like: Everything! My children grow tired of hearing the same Bible stories over and over again. They both jumped on this book and are still soaking up all of the information about the "new" people and places mentioned in the Bible.

What I Dislike: This book is a whopping 160 pages, yet we still wanted more!

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: Recommended ages 8 - 12
