Wonderful children's book--enjoyable with a good lesson! Jan 9, 2009
This children's story fleshes out the meaning of Psalm 118:24 "This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." The verse is repeated throughout the book as the girl goes about her day rejoicing in waking up to a new day, in sitting down to breakfast, in running and playing, etc. A great story to help illustrate that we are to rejoice in the Lord in all things, even the routine. The illustrations are adorable also. My 5- and 3-year-old daughters love this book. I will probably give it as a gift in the future to other children in the 2-5 year-old range. I definitely recommend this book for that age range.
It's a Blessing Aug 6, 2007
I love Karma Wilson's books - the rhymes are delightful. I purchase all of her books for the library. I plan to use this book in my Sunday school class because the book lends to so many discussion topics. The illustrations are soft and warm to match the Psalm verse. It's a good feeling book that I highly reccommend.
