If you have been following the blog for a while, then you know that I am a huge fan of the Baby Believer series by Catechesis Books. These primers are a fantastic way to introduce your little ones not only to important concepts like numbers, letters, and opposites, but also to the beauty and relevance of scripture.
This is the third year that I have been privileged to be a part of the launch team as Danielle Hitchen and Jessica Blanchard continue writing these books. I am so excited to give you a peek into the newest addition to the series – Our God: A Shapes Primer!

One of my favorite things about this book is that it teaches children not only to recognize shapes in the world around them, but also the hand of our Creator in those very shapes. Now when they see a round clock they won’t just think ‘circle’ – they’ll associate ‘circle’ with God being the ‘Rock of Ages’. I’m realizing more and more just how sponge-like toddler minds are. Vivian pays attention and memorizes more things than I know, and I want to be diligent about putting Scripture before her daily for her to soak up.
In keeping with the other Baby Believer books, Our God features bold and appealing colors and modern illustrations with a simplistic charm that will appeal to all ages. I absolutely love the artwork! Each page shows a shape with its name, and on the adjacent page it features the shape in a picture with a corresponding Bible verse.
As always, I love love love that these books are composed of Scripture. No diluted gospel here – we are teaching our little ones the very word of God. And yes, there will be words that are hard to understand, concepts above their head – but that is why we are here alongside them, to help them learn and grow and understand. Just like when we adults read the Scripture for ourselves, there will be more to unpack with each reading.
Here is a link to each of the books so you can check them out for yourself!
