All Things Bright and Beautiful By Cecil Frances Alexander

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.
First published by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848, this favorite hymn has become a mainstay of churches and Sunday school classes everywhere. Here artist Katy Hudson brings new joy to the words with her fresh and bright watercolor style. Readers can join in the fun as they follow two little girls and their brother on a day filled with the discovery of all things bright and beautiful. Ages 4-7.

Katy was raised in Middlesbrough and started her Illustration career as a small child drawing on freshly emulsioned walls around the house! Her parents quickly dissuaded this medium and encouraged drawing with pencil and paper instead.

The idea stuck (the pencil was updated to an ink pot and pen in some cases) and after some lovely time at Art College and a degree in Illustration Katy is now a freelance Illustrator working at a desk in an old London library.

All Things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small, 
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

My Review

Great story book teaching children that God can be seen everywhere. Might be in the creatures, rivers and streams. Even in a rainbow. The Lord God made them all..  The book is beautifully illustrated by Katy Hudson. The colors are so beautiful. What a awesome why for little ones to learn about creation. For little ones who can't read the pictures are just awesome. I know my granddaughter will look and tell her own story.  Loved it!!
