Teach your children big ideas with simple language
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 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.
As we sat in bed at night and read these stories to our children we quickly realized they are not just for kids. This book brought us together and built us up as a family, and on more than one occasion this dad was convicted about my responsibilities as a husband and father. The questions at the end of each story helped us discuss the principles from God's Word and apply them to life. I heartily recommend this book for children and parents. ~ Rob Langston, Associate Pastor, Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church (PCA), Dallas, Georgia
As a mom of three young sons teaching them about manhood and womanhood, according to God's Word, can be a challenging task! However, Cassie & Caleb Discover God's Wonderful Design is a helpful tool to pass on key concepts to the next generation. The Hunts' whimsical, practical stories will provide a launching pad to discuss these topics further with your children. After just one read my sons asked deeper questions that opened the door to more discussions of the grand design of men and women! ~ Heather Patenaude, mom to three boys and author of Emotional Purity: An Affair of the Heart
Are you looking for a resource to help your young children or grandchildren understand biblical thinking in a life-transforming way? As grandparents, we were thrilled to see how Susan and Richie Hunt use the likeable characters of Cassie and Caleb to help children understand life issues from God's perspective. The discussion questions, Scriptures, and guide to praying at the end of each chapter provide opportunities for sharing the concepts that are taught in each story in a relevant and authentic manner. This beautifully written and illustrated book offers much more than simply enjoyment as a child reads it. It is a relevant and valuable resource for adults to use as we train children to love and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. ~ Kent and Karen Sanders, Fort Worth, TX
This delightful book by Susan and Richie Hunt offers a much needed message for children growing up in a "gender blender" culture. Filled with beautiful illustrations, gospel truths, stories that help apply biblical principles, and questions for discussion, this will serve parents, grandparents, and ministry leaders as a resource to equip the next generation to live according to God's good design. As a grandmother of six, I am especially thankful for a book that points boys and girls to the gospel of Jesus Christ to learn why they were created, the way to true blessing, and how they can uniquely bring glory to God. I can't wait to recommend this book to others! ~ Linda Green, Women's Ministry Director, The Orchard Evangelical Free Church, Arlington Heights, Illinois
As a mama to young kids, I found this book to be a helpful resource. Especially in a culture that blurs the lines of manhood and womanhood, it showed me where to begin in teaching my little ones the beauty of God's unique design when He created male and female. I also loved the way God was woven through all the details of Cassie's and Caleb's day. I think this book will help remind families that God and His Word are central to all of life. ~ Maggie Paulus, mom of a couple rambunctious kids
Authors Susan and Richie Hunt create a powerful collection of age-appropriate stories for children to discover many biblical truths through the lives of characters, Cassie and Caleb. I found the format of the book—short story, paired Scripture, discussion questions, and prayer suggestions—extremely helpful for families who are looking for a daily Scripture lesson in their family routine. ~ Tina Sines, a happy mom
In a culture gone wild, it's easy to feel overwhelmed, outsmarted, and in over my head as a mom. I know that I want my children to hold tightly to God's Truth about who they are, but I don't always know how to make that happen. That's why I'm incredibly grateful for "Cassie & Caleb: Discovering God's Wonderful Design." It presents God's rich Truth in a way that makes a difference in little hearts and lives. (And unlike so many books on our shelves I enjoy it and learn from it too!) Every mom needs a copy! ~ Erin Davis, author of Beyond Bath Time:Embracing Motherhood As a Sacred Role
