My Review:
If you are looking for a fantastic way to teach elementary aged children about God, look no further than The God Puzzle! Valerie Ackermann has developed a wonderful lesson plan book that will take you and your child through 36 lessons like:

-Who is God?
-What is the Church?
-What is Baptism?
-How do I spend time with God?

and so many more questions!

 It is like a mini Bible College session for children ages 7-12. We have done five lessons so far and they are easy to explain for the parents and equally easy for our seven year old to comprehend! With fun activities, your child will be introduced to the Word of God in a fun way, preparing them for the the rest of their lives. I have even been able to modify a number of the questions for my five year old so we can have family Bible time together. 

The God Puzzle would be a great way to start off 2014 (as we are planning to do!) as a family and I highly recommend it!
