Reading Guide: Light and Color
When God made light, He made a way for the world to see Him through the things He made. Light helps us use our sight sense to discover and explore all of creation. Darkness hides color, shape, size and other features that our eyes can see with light. But light has the power to push darkness away. When it does, our eyes can see all the beautiful details that reveal God's own character in the things He made.
The Light & Color Compass Box helped little learners activate their sight sense and understand how our hearts are like lanterns made to carry God's light.
A curated reading list accompanies each Compass Box to infuse your learning time with living books that spark wonder and curiosity while fostering connection with the Creator. These books are a few of our favorites to accompany the February 2022 Compass Box.
