This adorable puzzle goes through all the letters of the alphabet with beautiful illustrations of animals and items that begin with each letter. The puzzle creates one long train with the alligator conductor at the front driving the engine of the train.

Each letters connects to the next one by some action taken or item shared between them. “Newt naps in the nest for Owl. Owl orders oatmeal for Pig. Pig plays piano for Quail.” I love that this gives the child a clue about which letter of the alphabet should come next, and they can find the correct puzzle piece.

This 1,000-piece puzzle is beautifully designed and thoughtfully crafted. The puzzle comes with a little 9″x6″ poster of the art, so that you can use it as a little poster, put the art in a frame, or use it to help you complete the puzzle. I was especially impressed to see that the backs of the puzzle pieces also have a little repetitive design of some blue flowers. It’s delightful to see little details like that which make this puzzle really special and show the exceptional craftmanship and careful thought that went into the design and manufacture of the product.

Non Fiction Review: Bible Word Search Book

Large Print Bible Word Search Book by Cristina Smith
Large Print Bible Word Search Book: 100 Challenging and Fun Puzzles for Adults
by Cristina Smith (Goodreads Author)

4 out of 5 stars

This word search book is divided into puzzles grouped by the book of the Bible and by chapter of the Bible. For instance, the first puzzle has words from Genesis 1:1-26, and the next word search has words from Genesis 2:7-10:9. There are three or four puzzles for each book of the Bible.

It’s strange that the book says they use the King James translation of the Bible, but they include puzzles for books of the Bible that are not included in King James, like the apocryphal books of Tobit, Judith, Maccabees, Sirach, and Baruch.

Each puzzle has about 30 words to search for, with big text to make it easier. I like the clear design, and each page is color-coded for a specific book of the Bible. Continue reading
