In the Big Inning… Bible Riddles from the Back Pew
by Mike Thaler, Illustrated by Jared Lee
Age Range: 6 – 9 years
Grade Level: 1 and up
Series: Tales from the Back Pew
Paperback: 32 pages
Publisher: Zonderkidz (February 7, 2010)

With hilarious stories and nutty pictures, the Tales from the Back Pew series offers a kid’s unique view of church. Enjoy plenty of giggles with your child—and learn fun, important truths about God, church, and the Bible. How do you know God is a baseball fan? Find out—look inside! The answer is even sillier than the question, and you’ll find lots more kooky bible riddles besides. Hold onto your socks so you don’t laugh them off!

This is a cute little book that would be a great read for little children who love learning/hearing jokes. It will also teach them a little bit about some of the stories in the Bible.

The jokes are really cute. Here are a few examples:
Why is God like a shoemaker?
Because he heels soles.

When did God free Jesus from the tomb?
At Son-Rise

In what sea can you see the future?

Where do cowboys talk to God?
On a prayer-ie

I enjoyed reading this book and think the age recommendation should be adjusted for children who are even younger than 6 yrs. old.
