This world can be ugly. Just turn on the TV or even log into your social media and you are bombarded with ugliness and all around negativity. Which is why I am always on the lookout for books that I can read with my 4 year old son to help remind us both that there is Light & Beauty in this world, and All Things Bright and Beautiful didn't let me down.
Using the lyrics to the hymn of the same name we are lead through amazingly detailed and colorful illustrations of all of creation. From the children playing in the field to a majestic wolf basking in the rich glow of the moon this book is a great reminder that all things truly are Bright and Beautiful, we only need to take the time to look around us.
With it's 32 pages of Beautifully written and colorfully illustrated pictures All Things Bright and Beautiful is a childrens book I was proud to be able to add to my sons growing book collection.
