Item description for God of the Sparrow (Hymns For Children) by Jaroslav J. Vajda, L. Preston McDaniels & Preston McDaniels...
Overview In his popular contemporary hymn, "God of the Sparrow," Jaroslav Vajda asks us to observe the wonders of the creation around us. Seeing all that exists - the lovely and the harsh - we have no choice but to respond to the Creator of all. How do we, as children of God, express our wonder, love, faith, and sorrow, this hymn asks. Rather than answering those questions, this hymn simply lays out the images and asks children (and all of us) to consider our responses to God.

My toddler loves this book, and so do I!! Aug 2, 2006
My two and a half year old daughter has this book, "God of the Spare-ee-owe," as she calls it, memorized because she asks me to read this all the time! It's become a favorite bedtime book, and it truly is wonderful. I was not familiar with this hymn, but bought it when I bought 'Earth and All Stars' which is a hymn I've long loved that Reverend McDaniels also illustrated. I was amazed the first time I read this to my little one, it seemed so deep and lovely and spiritual. One of my favorite parts is "God of the ages, God near at hand" where the illustration is of a little boy on a beach at night under the stars, and he is holding a starfish in his hand - it's easy to understand without being oversimplified. I used the part that says "...God of the empty tomb" to talk to my child about Easter. The illustrations are gorgeous and enlightening. I have bought four of his illustrated hymns books (All Things Bright and Beautiful & Now the Day is Over), and this is by far my favorite. This would be a great gift for a godchild or a baptism. I can't say enough wonderful things about this book!
Discription not clear Feb 25, 2006
The discription of this book does not clearly explain the context. The text is strickly the lyrics of Vajda's song. God is mentioned on every other page and the illustrations are lovely but this book it not a good read out loud book for little ones. The concepts are too complex for them to understand. I would not buy it again.
