Publishers Description With words that sing and colors that spill joy across the pages, Glory celebrates creation and the way every creature praises God. Whether winged or finned or furry, each creature -- by being and doing what it was made to be and do -- gives glory to the Creator.
This unique and inspirational book encourages young children to discover how they, too, can praise God in their own special ways.
From Publishers Weekly "Glory be to God for fluttering wings,/ for chickadees and butterflies/ that
dot the skies/ like words,/ dragonflies and hummingbirds." So begins
Carlstrom's (the Jesse Bear books) nondenominational song of praise, which
never falters in its timing and flow. Jenkins's (I Wanted to Know All About
God) inventively conceived illustrations, meanwhile, create a narrative that
easily engages readers. Against a buttery gold background, a thick, red, wavy
brush stroke begins on the title page and ends on the back cover. On that red
wave travels an extravagantly colorful parade of animals: a pink giraffe, blue
elephants, a green zebra. An early spread introduces a girl in a black
leotard, first seen creating her own pictures. In graceful transitions, she
dons varying costumes butterfly, ladybug, lion and dances beside the
creatures. Swept along by the music of the song, readers will find a
contagious energy in these exultant pages. "All creatures large,/ all
creatures small,/ that dance and leap/ and curl and crawl,/ the wild, the tame
/ All creatures by their being/ praise their Creator's name." The creators of
this illustrated hymn provide a joyful opportunity for their readers to
participate in praising God's name as well. Ages 3-8. (Sept.) Copyright

Glory is a brightly illustrated book, giving glory to God for all of the creatures on earth. Children from 3 to 7 will really enjoy this simple, colorful book. A big splash of red graces each page, containing all the particular types of animals, which are being praised. "Glory to God for gills and fins and all that moves upon the ocean floor . . . .for those who praise in ways they swim."
This is a delightful book for helping to introduce the child to the glory of God and giving thanks for all the creatures great and small.
