Seek and Find Book of Mormon Stories - Jason Pruett

Summary:  Search for Nephi, Moroni, and other hidden prophets and characters from the scriptures in this fun picture game book. Featuring scenes from the Book of Mormon, this book will keep kids entertained as they look for their favorite scripture heroes and hidden objects in the colorful illustrations. Perfect for home, church, or on the go, it makes learning the scriptures fun for everyone.  (Summary and image from  I was provided a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.)

My Review:  To start, how can I give a poor review to a book my three kids have been fighting over for weeks?  It's a good thing, then, that I don't want to give this a poor review!  Each page is filled with hilarious and relevant drawings depicting scenes from the Book of Mormon, as well as other little jokes and easter eggs to be discovered.  Each double page covers either one or more books of the Book of Mormon (Jacob, Enos, Jarom, and Omni are all together), with clues to search for stories and characters on each page.  It's a little tricky to see Lehi preaching next to a broken bow, but, hey.  It's a Seek and Find book!  There are also extra items in the back to search for on every page, so the life of the book will be lengthened.

My three year old has had a little difficulty with the clues.  They're a little too old for him, but my older two have taken to the book like a fish to water.  It's a wonderful way to help them remember some of their favorite Book of Mormon stories, and gives them the opportunity to tell them back to me using the book as their prompt.  There are also enough silly pictures in the book to keep my youngest from getting frustrated if he can't find what he's looking for right away.

One thing I wish this book had was a Solve Sheet in the back.  We are still trying to find the darn Liahona!  It's like it walked right out of the book!

My Rating:  Four Stars
