All Things Bright and Beautiful


All Things Bright and Beautiful. Based on Work by Cecil F. Alexander. Illustrated by Ashley Bryan. 2010. January 2010. Simon & Schuster. 40 pages.
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.
You may be familiar with the words of this new picture book. But Ashley Bryan has provided new illustrations to this familiar song. His illustrations are bright, bold, colorful. Very expressive.

I can't promise you that you'll love all the spreads equally, but I think you'll find it an interesting read all the same!

Perhaps this would pair well with This Little Light of Mine illustrated by E.B. Lewis, He's Got The Whole World In His Hands illustrated by Kadir Nelson, and Let It Shine also by Ashley Bryan.
