New ‘Bible Basics’ book is a beautiful keepsake for all ages

As a mom, believer and children’s book author, I jumped at the chance to review Bible Basics: A Baby Believer Counting Primer, the beautiful new board book by Danielle Hitchen at Catechesis Books.

New Bible Basics book is a beautiful keepsake for all ages

The downright frame-worthy graphic artwork by Jessica Blanchard in Bible Basics absolutely took my breath away. And, although this counting primer is geared towards babies and toddlers, it can truly be used to introduce or reinforce Biblical concepts at any age.

My just turned three-year-old loves the board book’s floral Beautitudes artwork, while my almost five-year-old gravitates towards the Fruits of the Spirit illustration. My favorite graphic in Bible Basics, however, is the sequential six days of Creation chart.

The wonderfully appealing, bright and modern yet elegant illustrations draw in children and adults alike, while the book’s text provides a foundation for important conversations about God and the Bible that can be tailored to fit any age.

I laughed during my discussion of the Trinity with my girls, as my oldest immediately pointed to the Cross in the book’s illustration of Father, Son and Holy Spirit and said, “That’s the important one.” She’s not wrong, but her untarnished, big picture perspective on the Bible helps me fine-tune my own beliefs and theology as we talk through the concepts in Bible Basics.

This unique children’s book is my new go-to gift for baby showers and first birthday parties, as it is a beautiful keepsake for believers of all ages.

    I love any toddler Bible that the babies can hold, touch, and look at. This teaches them to learn to love the word of God at a young age, instead of putting the Bible on a shelf where it will collect dust.

  2. Kat says:

    The Beginners Bible has been my son’s favorite. Its the same Bible my siblings and I started off with as well.

  3. This looks precious!

    I love the Jesus Storybook Bible! I feel like I get just as much out of it as the kids every time we read a story. It explains the “why” behind all the stories so beautifully!

    OH, it looks so pretty! I think my favorite is probably the Jesus Story book Bible, and these adorable little books that you sing with: Jesus Loves Me, Jesus Loves the Little Children, and Jesus is with Me. Thy are my kids’ favorites too.
