All Things Bright and Beautiful- Children's Book Review and Giveaway

All things bright and beautiful
All creatures great and small
All things wise and wonderful
The Lord God made them all...

I have loved that hymn's verse, and the additional lines that follow it, since I was a child.   There is just something about lines that take the beauty of the world and point us back to God that warms my heart.

Even better, illustrator Katy Hudson has taken the words penned by author Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848 and combined them with her lovely drawings into a sweet children's book.

All Things Bright and Beautiful is beautiful hardback book, geared for ages 4 -7.  It is such a joy to read!  Each of the 32 illustrated pages is teamed with one line from the poem and reminds children that God and his touch can be seen everywhere.

What a better lesson to teach our children, even at a young age?

The brightly illustrated pages will hold the attention of younger children, but also capture the imagination of older readers.  Even our 9 year old said he liked the colors and has read it several times!  Here's his favorite page:

With each new quality children's book I have the priviledge to review, I grow more and more excited to one day be able to pass them on to the next generation of our family.  I love that our faith can be taught to our children and someday granchildren not only by what we say and do, but also in what we read to them.
