What intrigues me so much about Caleb and Cassie is the central theme: the roles of and designs for men and women. Caleb and Cassie are learning about the similarities of boys and girls (same sin, same Savior) as well as the differences spelled out in Scripture (using the Scriptural metaphors of plants for boys and pillars for girls). Such a needed topic today!

It's a nice devotional for children that teaches God's truth. Each day's devotional starts out with a Bible verse which is basically the topic for that day's story. At the end of the chapter are some discussion questions. It teaches the basic truths about God, Jesus, etc... This book definitely is God-focused and the short-story would help the children learn more about God and how to be followers of Jesus.

What a charming book to teach your children God’s word concerning the scripture passage, "God created man in his own image . . . male and female he created them" My family enjoyed this delightful book. Every chapter ends with a “Let’s Talk” which includes Discuss, Memorize, and Pray. I like this in children’s books. This is a wonderful book that will be read over and over.

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 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. Also at the end of each chapter are discussion questions, memorization facts, followed by prayer. http://asimplelifereally.blogspot.com/2013/04/reviewcassie-discover-gods-wonderful.html

The concept behind this book was a good one, but the narrative style didn’t work for me. I would rather have read out regular Bible lessons to my children than these little stories that didn’t quite feel realistic. It seemed like they were forced, to fit the planned lesson than following a proper plot. Still, I’d like to see what else the authors may have written, in case they’ve published any non-fiction lessons. http://beccacarter.com/?p=2836

This book is appropriate for a family with children in the 5-8 range. There are 2 page devotional thoughts followed by a page with a few questions and a verse. I like the example of this family applying God's Word to all aspects of their life, not just something they talk about or read at church. As a parent this book gave me ideas of things from the Bible we can have discussions about with our son. http://raindropsrainbows.blogspot.com/2013/03/cassie-caleb-discovering-gods-wonderful.html
