Soul Sustenance: Knowing My God Series Starter Set

The “Knowing my God Series Starter Set” was recently released by publishing company Graham Blanchard. This gift set of board books includes three popular titles: Jesus Invites Me, based on Matthew 11:28 – 30, Jesus Shows Me, based on John 15: 9 – 14. and Jesus Saves Me, based on John 10: 14 – 16. These books aim to help kids make a personal connection with the words of Jesus, even from infancy. A keepsake book band holds the set together, which offers thinking and drawing activities for reflection.

I had a chance to review these books. Even though they're board books, which are generally reserved for toddlers and babies, they were very useful with my kindergarten-aged daughter as well! The concepts are presented at a very basic level, good for the youngest believers, and would make an excellent gift for a baptism, christening, or dedication. They are theologically general enough to work for all denominations, and I love the activities and questions included, to help extend the learning from just reading the books to gently helping toddlers and preschoolers think about their faith and what it means.
