Miriam M5 Stars Out Of 5Worth ItOctober 2, 2018Miriam MQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Let There Be Light is the third book from the Baby Believer Series. Published by Harvest House and Catechesis Books, Let There be Light looks at the Creation Narrative through opposites such as "Above/Below" and "Wet/Dry". Each page spread contains an opposite pair with a compelling Old Testament scripture. There is one New Testament Scripture (John 1:1-4) to illustrate "Light/Dark". I highlight this to say that this book could also be shared with a Jewish family for a Bris or the birth of a child (despite the inclusion of John 1). The art is focused on texture and color to illustrate the opposite concept as well as the chosen scripture. The simplicity of the art is ingenious as it allows for the imagination to be captivated while the opposite and scripture captivate the heart of both the child and the parent reading it.
I have purchased the first two Baby Believer books, and I am proud to add these next two books to my collection*. I give these books to my God Children, and as gifts at baby showers. Let there be Light will be no exception.
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
Ashley Moyer5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful Illustrated and Full of ScriptureOctober 2, 2018Ashley MoyerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Our family loves the books in the Baby Believer series, and "Let There Be Light: An Opposites Primer" is no exception! Each two-page spread takes a simple concept (opposites) and along with the beautifully captivating illustrations, introduces Scripture to our children. I love that this book is able to reach all three of my children (4, 2 and 9 months) at their individual levels. My three girls love the gorgeous illustrations, and for my 9 month old, that's perfect for her right now. My older daughters are enjoying learning the opposites in addition to looking at the pictures, and my 4 year old is even beginning to memorize small chunks of some of the verses! As an added bonus, I'm memorizing the verses, too, just from reading with my girls. The very first time I read this book with my daughters, my oldest pointed out the dinosaur on the Large/Small spread because they happen to be one of her favorite things. I love that this book, which outlines the Creation story through various Bible verses, includes this dinosaur, as they are often left out of Christian children's books. I can't say enough about how wonderful this book is and what an excellent tool it is for sharing God's Word with little ones!
Emily Werger5 Stars Out Of 5BeautifulOctober 2, 2018Emily WergerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love that it immerses my kids in scripture. The illustrations are dreamy and captivating. I like that it teaches opposites with a Biblical base. Absolutely love it.
malformica5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful book to teach children opposites and ScriptureOctober 2, 2018malformicaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The illustrations are captivating and lovely. I really like that they aren't cartoony and that they capture many details without being overwhelming or "loud". There is obviously a lot of thought and care put into which Scripture is used. This primer book focuses on teaching a simple, foundational idea like "opposites" to young children while simultaneously teaching Scripture related to the story of creation. I love that these concepts are mingled together and I'm teaching my children basic ideas and also theology! The gifts that these 2 women have for creating theology books for children blows me away! As a mama of 3 little ones (19m twins and 3 year old) with the desire that my children would each come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ, I'm immensely thankful the hard work and dedication that goes into these books. It's important to me to teach Scripture to my kids and not in a watered-down way that I've found many other books to be. This book has Scripture on every page! My 3 year old can easily recite the main opposite words on each page and is already recalling some of the Scripture that goes along with it.
Marissa Y5 Stars Out Of 5Simple Basics Beautifully DoneOctober 2, 2018Marissa YQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We love the Baby Believer books in our home! What a genius idea to take simple developmental basics - like opposites - and incorporate them into a book like this! Every parent wants to teach their kids the basics like this (just look at all the other books on opposites that are available); why not add in Bible verses and teach them THE most important thing at the same time?! The pictures are beautifully done and the creation story is easy to follow. My kids (ages 1, 3, and 6) all love it and my older two can easily recite the main opposite words on each page. I seriously wish I could buy each Baby Believer book for every one of my new mom friends. This is now my go-to baby shower gift!
