Publishers Description
Birds pray, trees pray, flowers pray, mountains pray, the winds and rain pray, rivers and the little insects pray as well. The whole earth is in constant prayer, and we can join with its great prayer, says award-winning author and illustrator Paul Goble.Every element of creation from the magpie to the minnow glorifies God in its own way in this bold and brightly illustrated work, adapted from The Book of Common Prayer. Goble invites readers to join with the land and the animals in singing praise to God.

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 Information.

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.
