Review:Cassie&Caleb (Discover God's Wonderful Design) by:S. Hunt/R. Hunt

About the Book:
 May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars cut for the structure of a palace." Psalm 144:12
Boys and girls, from 5 to 8 years of age, will love the fun world of Cassie and Caleb, two energetic and inquisitive children discovering the beauty of God's wonderful design. Through twenty beautifully illustrated short stories, followed by an interactive time between parent and child, your children will learn:
The creational principle that "God created man in his own image . . . male and female he created them" (Genesis 1:27) is extraordinary! That Jesus is in all of Scripture. The Bible is not a collection of disconnected stories; it is the one big story of the Triune God redeeming His people. God's Word is our authority and His Glory is our purpose. That when we belong to Jesus we belong to His covenant family, the Church.  A Biblical framework for living and thinking. The authors do not underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit in the heart and mind of a child. This book intentionally uses the rich language of faith, and then builds meaning around the words and concepts as the stories proceed, providing children the words of life.

My Review:
First of all I love the format of the book. It is a catechism type book that teaches with stories. My children are able to retain more more from the Bible and the lessons it is trying to teach them if it is told in a story type format. The illustrations are colorful and very well done. The stories are a good mix for boys and girls. Also at the end of each chapter are discussion questions, memorization facts, followed by prayer.

 If you are a homeschooling family like we are this is the perfect book to add to your Bible curriculum. It can also be used in a young children's Sunday School class or as a Bible study for young children. My children enjoyed it and I'm sure yours will too.
