Description

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.

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.

The Training Young Hearts board books will help parents encourage positive behavior through one of the most effective methods of learning—play! These engaging books will not only instruct kids but parents too, by equipping both with training refrains based in biblical truths. Abbey has provided us with an incredible tool to help us clearly and intentionally communicate with our kiddos in a way that points to them to Jesus.

“Helps Little Ones Fix Their Eyes on Jesus”

I received What Are Eyes For? compliments of The Good Book Company in exchange for my honest review.

What Are Eyes For? is the latest book in the Training Young Hearts series by Abbey Wedgeworth. This series was made to train toddlers while pointing them to the good news of the gospel. This volume in the series teaches young readers that God made their eyes to do many things like open and close and observe feelings on faces. It reminds them that their eyes weren’t made for glaring or looking down on others.

What Are Eyes For? includes flaps on each page for children to lift making it an interactive read. The illustrations are lovely and contain depictions of children of various ethnicities and abilities which I consider important in children’s literature. We are enjoying this lovely board book and can’t wait to read more in the Training Young Hearts series!

“Perfect for young children!”

This fun lift-the-flap board book teaches young children through practical and age-appropriate examples how to use their eyes in a Christ-like way. And with examples of what our eyes are not made for, children also learn that no matter what they do, they can come to Jesus in prayer and ask for forgiveness and help to be more like Him.

This board book is rich in Biblical truth and engaging illustrations, making it the perfect gift for the little ones in your life.

Thank you, The Good Book Company, for my copy in an exchange for an honest review.

“Love these”

We love this series. We have the whole set and love each book without exception. It engages my 2 year-old in age appropriate ways and explains the Gospel in a way littles can grasp without inducing guilt or shame. There really is no other books out there like these.

“Superb Series”

This is such a great series of books for toddlers, taking simple concepts (such as what we do with our eyes) and linking them to Jesus. In this book, we see how Jesus used his eyes, and how we can use ours too, looking to Jesus and his Holy Spirit, and looking towards his good plan for us. These are superb gifts for the young children in our churches, or for your little ones, helping them to have fun with reading and learn something about God's goodness to us too!

“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
