Our kids loved listening to this story, as it unfolds the reader becomes aware of what the "mystery" is all about but the characters in the book (all forest creatures native to North America) are still clueless.

The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers Hi&hellip by Sally Lloyd-Jones

Learning Resources LER0134 Plastic Pattern Blocks &hellip by Learning Resources

We also bought the pattern "cards" with pictures to replicate, but these on their own are great and you don't have to be too prescriptive in what the kids do with them. They are made of fairly solid-feeling plastic, not too flimsy and I think they will last us a fair few years.
