God's Crime Scene for Kids: Investigate Creation with a Real Detective by J. Warner Wallace **Review**

God's Crime Scene for Kids: Investigate Creation with a Real Detective

In this companion to Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, Jason uncovers a mystery in his grandmother’s attic. He and his friends, Hannah, Daniel and Jasmine, enlist the help of Detective Jeffries at the Jr. Detective’s Academy. Along the way, they develop the skills needed to investigate the mystery and the evidence of God’s existence. The cadets learn logical-thinking skills as they examine the contents of a mysterious box and the vast universe.

In God’s Crime Scene for Kids, real-life detective J. Warner Wallace shows kids ages 8 to 12 what skills are needed to solve Jason’s mystery, and at the same time looks at evidence in the universe that demonstrates God is the creator. Ultimately, kids will learn how to make their own case for God’s existence.

This was such a fun book to read through and explore with my daughter. Although it is written and aimed at/for children, I think many adults would enjoy and benefit from this as well. It is simple and straight forward without making the reader feel unintelligent or condescended. This isn't a book a child should read by themselves, in my your child will have questions and this is one of those conversations where dialogue with the parent is needed. I love that the author kept it fun and entertaining while educating and being analytical. The child ha fun being a detective and searching for clues to solve the mystery. I would recommend this book to anyone.
