Psalms May 26, 2010
Wonderful for children of any age. I have really enjoyed seeing the simplicity but thought for children.
Lovely book for adults as well as children Feb 13, 2010
I had borrowed this book from the library for my three-year-old twins and found that it was so beautiful I wanted them to own it. The drawings are lovely, but the translations of the psalms into child-accessible language and ideas is truly inspired; it gave me new understanding of the psalms and their order and interrelationship.
Beautiful text, beautiful illustrations Jan 7, 2010
This book was purchased for a 4 1/2 year old who loves the Psalms. She is crazy about it, and only reluctantly shares it with her 7 year old brother, who has asked for his own copy if she will not let him use it. I simply don't understand the folks who said they don't like the illustrations (some on other websites); everyone my daughter shows this book to (i.e. everyone who comes to the house), immediately comments on the beautiful illustrations! The language is just right for this age group, but does not "dumb down" the emotional depths of the Psalms. The print size is large and friendly. We just need a "volume 2" -- not every Psalm that shows up in church is in the book.
Well written Dec 16, 2009
Psalms for young children has been written so that children understand what the basic context is meant to say. The book is handy during prayer time, each psalm can be included along with their prayers. I recommend this book for both parents and grandparents.
Psalms to which chidren can relate Aug 25, 2009
Simple, direct phrasing of the Psalms so that young children can relate. Psalms are the main thing that I read out loud during Bible time to son at his age so he has enjoyed having some for his own. Every two pages features several sentences from a specific Psalms. On the oppossing page is the illustration for that particular pharaphrased chapter. The book dosn't rewrite, just pharaphrase so some of the sentences don't exactly flow or talk about the same thing but they do reflect the Psalm they are paraphrasing. The art work is ok, quality but not exactly my style. Rather fanciful and not always a reflection of the Psalm. Son enjoyed. Seems to be Biblically correct.
