Book Giveaway for Kids: Cassie and Caleb from Moody Publishers!

 

Cassie and Caleb Discover God’s Wonderful Design was written to “teach the beauty of God’s design to boys and girls” through short, realistic stories with cute characters. This book of 20 stories is meant for children between the ages of 5 and 8, but I know that children who aren’t in this age group will still relate to these characters and learn something from them. 

Parents are encouraged by the LORD to be intentional about teaching their children about God and His Truth; I wholeheartedly recommend this book to parents who want to spend time learning with and leading their children to God’s Word about the following topics:

 

  1. “God created man in His own image…male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27). 
  2. Jesus is present in all of Scripture and that God’s plan to redeem mankind is the uniting theme of the Bible.
  3. The Bible is our guide for living and loving God.
  4. We exist to worship and glorify God.
  5. We are part of His church – the Family of God!

 

This book is bound to be a good foundation for parents to start teaching their children about God in a format and manner than children can grasp and then put into practice.  Each short story has colorful, eye-catching illustrations and begins with a verse (NIV or ESV) that presents the theme -the Truth – the story will illustrate.

Each individual story is followed by discussion questions on the level of the child, suggestions for more Bible reading, a guide to praying together using Scripture, and some stories even include a section where parents can choose to go over the questions – and answers – of the First Catechism from Great Commission Publications (www.gcp.org) {Reformed Faith Doctrine}.

All in all, I was very impressed with the layout, material, and resources that this book provides.  The size of the book doesn’t make it intimidating; once I looked through the book I felt ready to  start reading it with my three children right away.  I have no doubt that others will have the same reaction!

My favorite part of this book was the fact that it provides a real-world example in a certain chapter of how the Church, God’s family, can be a blessing and an extended family and support to the overlooked ones in our congregations: the father-less, the widow, and the single mom.

 

Whether you use this book as a springboard for deeper study or used as a stand-alone resource, once you finish this book, your child will have a deeper grasp of the following topics, just as a start:

 

  1. They will be able to share why God made men and women differently and how they complement each other;
  2. They will be able to explain why it’s important to have a good attitude; and
  3. They will know why it’s important to make Godly decisions in life.

 

 

 * There is also a bonus page with a “family” recipe for Snickerdoodles

that you can make WITH your child . . .  

just like the ones that the main characters eat in the book! * 

 

*This book is part of the Plants and Pillars Series at Moody, inspiration for the name taken from the following verses: *

 

Psalm 144:12

English Standard Version (ESV)

12 May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown,
our daughters like corner pillars cut for the structure of a palace
