Source: Received a copy from the publisher for an honest review

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.

I have enjoyed doing seek and find books with my children since they were young and we still pull one out from time to time. We looked at this together one day and had lots of fun! The pictures were easy to find and we enjoyed reviewing some of the stories. 

I've seen this illustrator's work before and knew we would have fun looking at some of the other pictures in each scene. We laughed at the pig walking a pig, the cat chasing the turtle and the turtle race (we have a Russian tortoise so pictures of turtles always get our attention). When we got to the end, it was fun to see that the author listed more items to seek and find for each page which include some of those fun pictures we found as we looked through the book. 

This would be a fun addition to a Sunday church bag! Little ones will need help reading the items to find but each page has a lot going on so just looking at the pictures should keep their attention for a while, too. It will also keep the attention of older children and they'll review scripture stories (whether they realize it or not). He also gives scripture references that they can look up to get even more out of it. This is a book that can be tailored to use for multiple ages in a variety of ways!
