All Things Bright and Beautiful is book based upon the hymn written by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848. This isn’t a story by word but by illustrations. The words in the book are the hymn word by word. The watercolor illustrations are simply sweet to the soul and delightful to the eyes. I’m forever pleased with this children’s book not because the reminiscence it brings to me but by the fact I can share the glory and majesty of God with my children in such a wonderful way.
This book is available in hardcover which I feel is quite suitable. I feel this is a book that will be read and used over and over again whether in a home or church setting. The illustrations go with the hymn exceptionally well. We follow three children throughout the day to night exploring all of the amazing wonderful things in nature God has created. At the end of the book, we see a tent so it appears the children are discovering all these things while camping with their family.
The adventures of the day we see the children picking blueberries, playing among sunflower, picking wildflowers, skipping rocks, flying kites, and so forth. All in all a wonderful day to be had! This will get children excited about getting outdoors and being wrapped up in all that God has given us.
My eight year old daughter and five year old son adore this book and have read it over and over again on their own and to each other. I like singing the story to my two and half month old and she smiles and coos in response. I highly recommend this brilliantly created book!
