About EvensongBabyBooks

Sales 298
On Etsy since 2019

We create beautiful gospel-centered baby books to help you on your way to raising your littles to love their savior.

Evensong was born out of a desire to bring up my children in a gospel-centered home. I searched high and low for high-quality Bible-based children's books. Take it from someone who knows: there's not a lot out there. Many Christian children's books on the market today focus solely on Bible "stories" but leave out the story of the Gospel. Those that do offer an in-depth picture of Jesus' death and resurrection aren't developmentally appropriate for the littlest of God's children or fail to hold my daughter's attention. Many gloss over the true message of the gospel with overly-simplistic messages or fail to actually engage and instruct small children on how to live a life of active faith. I set out to create books based on our favorite songs and prayers so that my daughter could have a reminder of her Savior's love daily at her fingertips.

Our name is based off of the early Christian church's name for vespers, or evening worship. Many parents spend time reading with their children before bed. At Evensong Baby Books we hope to bring worship-- whether loud and boisterous or quiet and reflective-- to your child's bedtime routine.

Why are your baby books so expensive?

I work to keep prices as low as possible. There is a lot of time and energy involved in writing, designing, formatting, cutting, ironing, and sewing my baby books. Ordering custom fabric comes with its own expenses (shipping, for one.)

Most board books are mass produced in large batches in factories. Mine are produced at my kitchen table during nap time. If I charged less I wouldn’t be paying myself for my time or energy.
