All Things Bright and Beautiful by Cecil Frances Alexander and illustrated by Bruce Whatley
This week Anthony has discovered this picture book and has been requesting it every day at naptime. “Sing,” he commands me.
This is an illustrated version of the hymn. It follows a girl as she goes about a day on the farm from putting on her boots in the morning, doing chores, feeding the animals, to singing with her family in the evening and ends with her in bed looking out the window at the night sky. Beautiful, beautiful pictures with lots of animals, sure to please the toddler set. Horses, birds, cats, dogs, ducks, etc.
If you get it, you’ll need to learn how to sing it. A video helps:
