From Publishers Weekly In crisp, evocative watercolors that depict a wide spectrum of nature's
beauty, Goble (The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses) creates harmony with lyrics
that have their roots in the Book of Daniel as well as The Liturgy of the
Hours and The Book of Common Prayer. "O all you works of the Lord, bless you
the Lord: praise him, and magnify him forever," begins the text. Subsequent
verses, some appearing in fine print, akin to captions, implore all manner of
flora and fauna, from dandelions to vultures to moose, to praise the Lord.
Goble's sweeping vistas of beasts roaming the mountains and plains, moths in
the night skies and scarlet-capped redpoll birds perched on snow-covered tree
branches show a gorgeous cross-section of God's gifts to the world. This
presentation will surely help young readers develop or bolster an appreciation
of Divine handiwork. All ages. (Sept.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business

Reviews - What do customers think about Song Of Creation?
This is terrible! Jan 16, 2008
It is basically the same line over and over. (Fifty times!) I tried to push through and both my kids walked off. Terrible. Don't waste your money.
This book is BORING Mar 15, 2007
I purchased this book because it was recommended by the home school curriculum I was using as additional reading material. I was very disappointed with this book - it is plain boring. I did not see its value or its relevance to the curriculum we were studying. It is not something my kids would read again and again - I could barely get them to sit through it once.
