Adapted from The Book of Common Prayer, this book for children age 5-10 is beautifully illustrated by the author, Paul Goble. With bright, delightful pictures that youngsters and parents will love, Goble shows every element of creation — birds and animals, day and night, ice and cold, sun and moon, winds and water, plants and air –worshipping and glorifying God, the Creator of it all. It’s a good reminder that God’s presence is all around us.
Each page includes a few verses in smaller type, reminding the reader that they can add verses and ideas of their own.
Children will enjoy and quickly pick up on the liturgical statement that is repeated over and over:
“bless you the Lord: praise Him and magnify Him forever.”
However, parental involvement will be needed to unpack the meaning in a way children can understand.
VERDICT: 4 STARS
