The words are familiar, of course, so I heard children's voices singing as I looked through this book. The illustrations are colorful and fun.

Very colorful collages illustrate the hymn by Cecil Alexander. As a nonchurch-goer, I would usually shy away from a hymn based book, but this is really a beautiful celebration of earth as well as a hymn.

This book is all about the illustrations and they are really amazing. I feel like I could spend hours looking at it and still miss something. It's a truly amazing piece of art from beginning to end.

I have been trying to get a very specific copy of this book. No luck yet, but our libraries are still trying. This is probably the most beautiful edition I have seen this year. The watercolor illustrations are vibrant and perfectly illustrate this poem.
LibraryThing member LibrarianRyan
You have probably hear this poem more than once. It’s pretty common. This illustrator uses cut paper to make the graphics to her version of this poem. And they are fantastic. Very intricate and interesting. Plus the color. It’s amazing what someone can do with construction paper.
