Children's Book Review: All Things Bright & Beautiful

Katy Hudson provides enchanting illustrations to accompany the classic hymn "All Things Bright and Beautiful" by Cecil Frances Alexander in this glorious, hardback picture book. The watercolor paintings show three adorable children flying kites, picking wild berries and enjoying mountain rivers, flowers, and birds. The children have come to camp with their parents, and the various wildlife ("creatures great and small") rome the hills or hide away in corners as the moon and the stars come out. Hudson's stunning drawings match the hymn perfectly, while the book concludes with the appropriate Scripture selection of Genesis 1:1,31. The rich meaning behind the text combined with such lovely pictures make this a children's book that even adults will enjoy keeping on their bookshelves.
