Cassie and Caleb Discover God’s Wonderful Design by Susan Hunt and Richie Hunt. Moody, 2013. 96 pages.

Reading Level: Devotional, ages 4-8

Susan Hunt and son Richie Hunt tell 20 short stories about siblings Caleb and Cassie and their Christian family. The stories are a touch contrived, such as you might expect from a story-with-a-meaning, but they still resonate with children. (If you’re familiar with Susan Hunt’s ABC Bible Verses, Caleb and Cassie will sound similar to Missy and Billy.) Each story is followed by Scripture to read, questions on the story and application, and something to pray about. What is intriguing about Caleb and Cassie is the central theme: the biblical roles of and designs for men and women. Caleb and Cassie are learning about the similarities of boys and girls (same sin, same Savior) as well as the differences spelled out in Scripture (using the scriptural metaphors of plants for boys and pillars for girls). It’s easy to miss spending such intentional time training our children in a key area like this—an area in which our society is most definitely doing its best to instruct them whether we like it or not. Stories are short enough to cover weekly or more frequently, depending on the ages of your children.
