This delightful little book was written by Ellie Holcomb, a musician who began her career touring with the Americana band, Drew Holcomb (her husband) and the Neighbors. She was named Best New Artist at the 2014 Dove Awards. Maybe some of her music could be reviewed on an upcoming post? Beth Ann?
At any rate, this children’s book combines Ellie’s love for music with thoughts of God and His creation. Who sang the first song? Was it in the wind? The waves? The roar of the lion? Of course, we learn that the original singer was God Himself, who as Ellie says, “He wrote His song into everything.” Everyone of us, and all of God’s beloved world are invited to make a joyful noise, because we were made to sing.
I enjoyed the fanciful illustrations(thank you Kayla Harren) and the brief, but inspiring text, and I think young children would enjoy this book as well. A copy is definitely going on the Christmas list for my yet-to-be-born granddaughter, Hailey!
I give this book five stars! If you want to purchase it, you can go to the following link:
