All Things Bright and Beautiful
A joyful, artistic rendering of a favorite childhood hymn. God's touch can be seen everywhere: in the rivers and streams, in the forest and its creatures, and in each of us. And nowhere is this more lyrically celebrated than in the words of "All Things Bright and Beautiful," first published by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848. Here, artist Katy Hudson brings new joy to this mainstay of churches and Sunday school classes with her fresh and engaging watercolors. Readers will be swept along as they follow three young children who delight in a day filled with the discovery of "all things bright and beautiful.” This striking book is a beautiful reminder that every good thing we see is from God. Ages 4 to 7.
My thoughts: My daughter and I love this gorgeous little book! It is a great way to work with young children on the words to the song by the same title. I adore the illustrations, since they match the words perfectly as they show God's beautiful creation through the eyes of a family on a camping trip. My daughter just may wear this one out, since she asks me to read it to her quite often.:)
If you are looking for a good way to teach children about God's creation, then this book is a beautiful way to go about it.
I received this book from Worthy publishers in exchange for my honest review.
