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 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Reviews - What do customers think about Glory?

A Delight!  May 14, 2002
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.
