As someone who grew up with Where’s Waldo, I was so pleased to find Welcome to BibleWorld by Mike Nappa and Emiliano Migliardo for the next generation of kids!

(Click here to find Welcome to BibleWorld on Amazon!)

It is a search-and-find that imagines what it would look like if the Bible was turned into an amusement park. To that end, each spread features rides and attractions inspired by different sections of the Bible, such as “Prophets’ Wilderness” and “Mail Island.”

My kids (aged 5-9) really enjoyed finding each item, which also included it’s corresponding verse, such as “a fancy turban” connects with Leviticus 8:9 or “a talking donkey” with Numbers 22:28.

The only things that I would love to be different would be for it to include an answer key (on one page, we had to find “a girl praying” and couldn’t tell whether the lady was clapping or praying with her eyes open). It would also have been cool to have some of the Scriptures actually included or featured, rather than just attributed.

But it definitely got us talking and kept my kids engaged for all afternoon! They even wanted to bring it with them to a doctor’s appointment.

Many thanks to The Good Book Co. who provided a free copy to me to facilitate this review.

“Ah, spring!” Bear smiled as he stretched and made his way out of his den. The grass was green, the daffodils were just unfurling and…

“Wait, what is that?” Bear looked around. “A snowflake?! Winter’s back, already?!” Bear raced back to his cave.

Before long, though, his cold soup began to steam. “What?!”

Bear inched out of his den, only to discover that it was now hot and blistering outside!

“What happened to spring?!” he snorted and headed to the stream to cool off. He’d just waded in when the sun dipped behind some clouds. “Ahh, now this is spring!” he sighed.

But the sun stayed hidden, and the air grew chillier and chillier until Bear had to race home, shivering. He was almost to his den when the gray clouds gave way to a dumping, drenching  rain.

“Oh, I get it,” Bear grumbled, dripping wet. “Now, it’s spring!”


Thanks so much to Kaitlynn and Ciara for hosting the Spring Fling Writing Contest! This is my first time participating and I was inspired by what spring is like here in the Midwest: forever changing from cold to hot, over and over again. I hope you have enjoyed it, and I can’t wait to read everyone else’s entries!
