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.

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.
