"Would you like Grand-Merey to read you a new book?" I asked my three-year-old grandson, holding T is for Tree by Connie L. Meyer from Reformed Free Publishing Association in my hand.
"Yes!" he smiled, hopping on my lap.
We read the beautifully illustrated picture book. That was my first time reading it because I wanted to see it through my grandson's young eyes.
I was so impressed!
Not only were the pictures beautiful, but the choice of words was lovely. A gave us ants, those industrious creatures commended for their hard work in Proverbs. G introduced Goat and we were reminded of the scapegoat the Israelites used to "pay the price" of their unintentional sins.
My grandson loved the lovely picture book and we reread it several times. I took time to sit down and read the book alone and was amazed by the deep theological content of T is for Tree by Connie L. Meyer.
Each page is beautifully illustrated with a letter, word that begins with the letter, and a lovely picture defining the word. The poems on each page are pleasing to the ear of young and old alike!
The poem makes the verse come alive in simple language. The verse the word and poem are taken from is written at the bottom of every page.
Let me give you an example. F is for Faith. There is a beautiful mountain scene. The poem: "F is for Faith, a might gift of grace; As little as a mustard seed will move a mountain's place." Simple, yes? But you probably already know that it's based on the verse from Matthew about having faith as tiny as a grain of mustard seed can still move a mountain. Matthew 17: 20 is quoted on the bottom of the page.
Did I mention I love the illustrations? I would love to frame some of them in my house to remind me how beautiful God's perfect Word is. This book is a great way to reinforce Biblical truths in our children's lives. And adults might want to take a few minutes alone and refresh their own souls as well in T is for Tree.

I just had to go check out some other products from Reformed Free Publishing Association. Behold the Beauty is an art curriculum for elementary children in three separate volumes. Come My Children is a Bible storybook for young children. I was intrigued by the impressive variety of books about doctrine, courtship, marriage, Christian living, and biographies. There are also several Bible study guides. All of their materials are written from a Reformed, or Calvinist, Theological perspective.
Until next time, Happy Homeschooling!
For His Glory,
