God's Crime Scene for Kids by J Warner and Susie Wallace

Wallace has taken his expert way of investigating truth and made it available to readers age 8 to 12. The story includes a group of kids, one of whom has found a mystery in his attic. Detective Jeffries help them solve the mystery while instructing them on investigative techniques. He then helps the young detectives apply those techniques to understanding the origin of the universe.

I like how Wallace helps young detectives learn how to think through issues rather than telling them what to think. The kids learn skills like making a reasonable inference, asking the right questions, evaluating information, and more. He helps them come to the point where they can trust their conclusion.

Some serious issues are tackled in the book too, such as why God allows bad things to happen. There is also a good salvation message included in the book. The illustrations are great, as are the sidebar boxes with definitions and extra investigative ideas.

I recommend this book to young people who want to learn to think like a detective does. It's a great book for parents to read right along their their kids. You can find out more about this book and the others Wallace has written for kids at http://www.casemakersacademy.com/cold-case-christianity-for-kids/.
