It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old…or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!
You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

This is a fun little book geared to ages six to nine. Some of the riddles are the kind that make big people groan and little people laugh out loud. The last page has bonus riddles that can put little feet on the right path.
If you let your child take a book to church to keep him quiet during the sermon, don’t take this one. The giggles could be disruptive.
