Fun lift-the-flap board book that motivates small children to use their eyes in a Christ-like way.

This helpful and engaging training tool will help parents to teach their kids that God didn’t make their eyes to look down on others, but for positive things like watching, blinking, squinting and winking.

Not only will children be encouraged to follow Jesus’ example, but they’ll also be reassured that he loves us no matter what we do. He can forgive us when we fail and help us to change.

This book is part of a series called Training Young Hearts, that addresses the attitudes of the heart that underpin behaviour and explains how the gospel of grace enables us to change.

Parents, teachers, and other loved ones can refer back to these resources when specific behaviours need both to be corrected and to be connected to forgiveness, grace and growth.

Endorsement written for What Are Hands For? Board Book

One of the most important ways we can train young children is to teach them what is right as well as teach them what is wrong. In the Training Young Hearts series Abbey Wedgeworth faithfully shows children how to live while also telling them the good news of God’s grace. These board books are such an engaging (and fun!) way to teach big truths to young hearts.

“Through Eyes of Our Savior”

The What Are Eyes For? Board Book is a lift-the-flap board book by Abbey Wedgeworth to encourage your kids to use their eyes like Christ. I love the entire concept of this book and how we can use body parts like our eyes to worship God.

Through Eyes of Our Savior

Wonderfully illustrated by Emma Randall, this book is an engaging and delightful. I was most moved to share with my children that we can look up to God while also looking around to the needs of others in this world. Help your children see through the eyes of our Savior!

I received a media copy of What Are Eyes For? and this is my honest review.

“Our favorite!”

My toddler loves these lift-the-flap books! We have the entire series now.

“Absolutely fantastic”

Beautiful and engaging book, with big flaps. Not only it talks about what eyes are for but also what they aren’t for. Seamlessly integrated with Bible verses and compared to Jesus and God. Written in a way that even the smallest readers will understand and learn from. I honestly couldn’t remember this book enough.

“A timely addition to our home”

I have found these books to be extremely timely and helpful in the shepherding of our little ones hearts. I have three children under 6 and so sometimes, ears and eyes aren’t doing what I’d hope they’d be doing. These books have been just the tool we’ve (long) needed to bring a visual to the conversations we are consistently having around thinking of others and using our bodies to glorify God. Thank you Abbey for creating these incredibly practical tools which point our children’s hearts to Jesus and all he has done for them.

The books go through what our ears and eyes are for, what they are not for, that Jesus was once a child like them and that because of his loving sacrifice for us, we can say sorry and ask for his help. A wonderfully positive and clear message for our little ones. All with the assistance of the alluring lifting of the flaps ☺️

As a side note, I loved how inclusive the illustrations were too ♥️

“Great for toddler discipleship!”

Another great book in this series! Parents looking to impart Christian values of esteeming others to your little ones simply and effectively – this book is an absolute gem for you! It is interactive, featuring lift-flaps and cool gestures like clapping and waving to keep things engaging.

What's even more remarkable is the clear Gospel message it conveys – pointing to how Christ modeled obedience and they can too! It is so gracious and life-giving to teach little ones of God’s kindness.

It's worth noting that the book does include cartoon-style depictions of Christ, which might be something to consider if your family has convictions on that. That said, overall, it's a fantastic book that deserves a solid four stars. It's a great addition to your personal library, and it's also perfect for the kids' room at your church

“A true gem of a book and great discipleship tool!”

These books are true gems! I shared two of her previous books that my toddler loves awhile back and am so excited to add these two to our collection. Each book has flaps to lift on every page for busy hands. Not only that, but they teach children that how we use our bodies is important to God. God has made us with our eyes, ears, hands, and mouths to praise Him and bring Him glory. Each book shows children the right way to use our bodies, the way God intended for them to be used. They also address sinful ways we use our bodies and disobey and then immediately point children to Christ and his example and how we can ask God for forgiveness and ask the Holy Spirit to help us when we are tempted to do wrong. These are for ages 2-4.
These books have been such great tools in our home for discipleship and discipleing. I love that they share the gospel in such a tangible way for toddlers that is so applicable to daily life and shows them their need for Christ. Highly reccomend for the toddler in your life!

Thank you @thegoodbookcompanyusa for my copies for my honest thoughts!

“Big Truth simply!”

This book quickly became a favorite of my 2-year-old! She loves sitting and turning the sturdy pages and opening the flaps, which are both designed to be perfect for little fingers. She really engages with the illustrations of the kids and their clear facial expressions.
As a mom, I appreciate the solid biblical truth the book is written to convey. Though it uses simple language that is easy to understand, the message of God as our creator, our purpose in serving Him, and Jesus as the only perfect One is communicated very clearly.

“Adorable and full of truth”

This lift-the-flap board book is written by Abbey Wedgeworth.

In this sweet series, children are introduced to gospel-centered truths, through sweet and simple biblical messages.

One thing I love about this series is that it teaches children, no matter what you have done (such as rolling eyes, or ignoring instructions), there is hope and grace in Jesus.
An important truth we can never learn too early!

Full of vibrant and colourful illustrations, and relatable content for young children, these books would be a fantastic addition to your toddlers home library.

I received a copy of this book from The Good Book Company in exchange for an honest review.

“We love this book!”

We absolutely love the Training Young Hearts series! This is the latest addition to the series which is now available for pre-order! We loved the first two books in this series and read them on repeat, these two new ones are equally amazing! I love how clearly Abbey addresses why God gave us the ability to see and talks about the way we can use this sense for Gods glory or for sin. She always brings it back to the gospel and God's good plan, His forgiveness when we sin and how we need God's help to obey Him. These books are wonderful for training toddlers hearts and they are so engaging with all the flaps. I can't say enough good things about these books and highly recommend them if you have a young child!
