This is a fantastic workbook for my two kids to learn to think for themselves with who God is and what that means to them. They have been engaged working through it with us and we are having more meaningful discussions. Adults benefit from it as well by the way!

What an awesome biblically based book to use with kids!  I'm not a parent, but I am a missionary working with children in the jungle.  I can't wait to start using this with them.  If you are looking for a theologically sound book to help teach Truth to your children, pick this one up!  And, get another for a friend too!

I use this book with my three children (ages 6,9, and 11) as our Bible study every morning. It has been such a valuable asset in leading their learning about God and his plan of salvation along with some incredible conversations starters. I highly recommend this book! I have purchased several as gifts and have gotten rave reviews from the recipients as well.

My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed this book.  It is well written and very engaging.  The workbook helps each child develop a lifelong, personal relationship with Christ.  I recommend this book for families at all stages of faith - not intimidating at all!!

We purchased this to go through with our 7 year old and have been VERY impressed! Might need to order one to save to go through with the younger ones.  So easy to use, deep, colorful, Biblical, and it all points to Christ.   I love the ready to go discussion questions, and how the child responds to each lesson with their mind and their heart.  Awesome.

Wonderful Christian Learning Tool! The God Puzzle is a very comprehensive workbook for parents and children. This is an excellent tool for parents in a one-on-one situation with a child or children in a family situation. Each child needs a copy of this book since it is very personalized as the child works through the lessons. The use of scripture and memorization of Bible verses is relative to each lesson, and a complete picture of the Bible is presented. Numerous questions are broached and answered in an elementary, practical and understandable manner. This book is very educational in a colorful and enjoyable format. Some activities involve crossword puzzles, word searches, fill in the blanks, etc., and are fun and add a sense of play to the study. Colorful examples are used as appropriate illustrations, visuals that a child can relate to with ease. At the end of each lesson are sections entitled (1) Read It, where Bible verses are listed, (2) Talk About It, where a discussion time and questions are listed, and (3) Talk To God About It, where the child can reflect and write his or her own prayer letter to God. Any elementary age child, even junior high children, should be able to understand the information provided in this book, and to participate in the activities provided. I would use this with a child over a period of time so as not to overwhelm him/her with too much information too quickly. A lesson each week would be ideal, emphasizing the lessons during the week to keep the child in tune with the lesson learned for that week. I found this book helpful as an adult, having had a limited exposure to a relationship with God as a child.

Puzzles have many pieces that fit together to make one big picture.  In her new book, Valerie Ackermann helps children ages 7 - 12, see how the Bible "pieces" fit together to become the full picture, with meaning for them. A workbook for the Bible? Don't kids have enough to do for school? That might be your first thought when you see "The God Puzzle," but you really need to look further. It shouldn't be a chore to learn about the Bible, it should be a delight! Inside these pages are colorful illustrations, Bible verses to read, puzzles, things to talk and pray about, "prayer letters to God," and so much more. This book offers the opportunity for children to really begin to enjoy learning about Bible doctrines, drr how the Bible works and fits, and helps create habits that will last a lifetime. This is such a fun, wonderful way to learn about the Bible. Questions like, "Who is God?" "What was the Tabernacle?" and "How do I study the Bible?" offer children, and their parents, the opportunity to see God's Word can have special meaning for each of us. I really enjoyed studying along with the book's characters, and will purchase copies to give as gifts. It will make a wonderful tool to have in your library, or to give to the youngsters in your life.

When I was young one of my favorite books was a big hardback book of Bible stories. I loved the pictures and the way it explained the stories of the Bible in a way my young mind could understand. I still linger around those type of books when I go to a bookstore even at my advanced age. They wormed their way into my heart and I developed a love for them when I was very young. The God Puzzle by Valerie Ackermann brought back those memories. It's like a giant storybook but with so much more. It covers such subjects as : Who is God? What Happens because of Sin? Who is Jesus? What is the New Covenant? What are My Old Self and My New Self? How do I Spend Time with God? Very deep subjects but they are explained in a way that is easy to understand. Kids will gain a knowledge of the Bible they have never had and have fun while doing it. It is full of activities like: Fill in the Blanks Multiple choice Matching the Scripture with the correct verse Writing Prayer Letters to God (love this!) As your child is doing these activities he/she will gain valuable knowledge that will help them grow to know and love God. I love this book as a whole and, if I had kids, I would appreciate having this wealth of knowledge to impart to them in such a fun yet effective way. You can't read this book and not learn. I would recommend it to anyone with children within the specified age group (7-12) and even suggest it as a gift if you don't have children yourself. It's really an amazing learning tool!
