Tyndale Review: The one Year Book of Bible Trivia for Kids by Katrina Cassel #grow4christ

on January 10, 2014

About the Book:

What kind of fruit did Eve take from the tree of knowledge of good and evil? A. pear; B. apple; C. we don’t know.

What did Jesus serve the disciples for breakfast? A. fruit and cereal, B. fish and bread; C. manna and quail.

Learn a little Bible trivia while learning more about God’s message within the Bible. This One Year book features 365 trivia questions that lead into meaningful devotions about the questions. Each devotion also includes a For You section, which gives a simple application to kid’s lives. And the answer to the opening question wraps up the devotion and gives readers biblical references to read.

This book will keep curious kids on their toes and give them a reason to open their devotional and Bible daily. They can also use their knowledge to test family members each day. [The answers to the questions above are C. we don’t know and B. fish and bread.]

You can purchase this at Tyndale or on Amazon and other book retailers.

My Opinion:

When I received the Bible Trivia for Kids to review I was and still am excited.  The One Year Book of Bible Trivia for Kids is great to jump start the mornings – and it’s a fun way to get the children off on the right foot instead of fighting (although I make no promises or guarantees that you’ll have the same or similar results about siblings getting along).  The book is dated from January 1st through December 31st, but while some of the readings are themed like for the new year or for Christmas, you can really just pick and chose which ones to read on which days depending on what you want to cover.  Of course you can just read it in order as well!  The choice is yours.

The book has 400 pages and measures 6 inches by 9 inches which fits great in my tote bags and my purse for on-the-go devos for the whole family.  An example of what you’ll find is for July 2nd, the topic is “Learn From It” and you’ll have the trivia question (take turns having the children guess or have a different child guess each day) then a short devo reading corresponding to the trivia, a “For You” question to open up discussion and then the trivia answer along with a Scripture verse.  In the back of the book is a Scripture Index that outlines which Scriptures are used for which date, so you can pre-read and get a sense of what you’ll be covering before doing it with your children.

It’s not colorful on the inside but that is okay as it’s more to focus on bringing God’s Word to the child and giving them a way to make it relate to their life through fun trivia.  I know some don’t like the Bible and fun together but if it sticks to Biblical truths and gets the Scripture into the hearts of children then I’m all for a little fun during devotional time.  Since there are no years this can be used over and over to cycle back through time and again, and while it’s geared for ages 8 to 12 I can see other children who may be older or a bit younger also getting a lot of out this and enjoying it as well.
