Overview

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

A lush little board book edition of the beloved hymn.

Naoko Stoop's charming art, with an array of cuddly animals and an adorable little girl, captures the sweet spirit of the lyrics, which offer praise for nature, beauty, and the glory of all creation. The girl, accompanied everywhere by a cute monkey, wanders through glowing fields of flowers, where birds fly and nest; purple mountains with a flowing river where ducks make their home; and lush butterfly-filled meadows, perfect for playing. This is a gorgeous book for parents and children to share.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The famous hymn is given beguiling illustrations in this board book."--Kirkus Reviews
 
“This well-known hymn is considered a particularly accessible one for children. Here the words are matched by Stoop's charming pictures painted on wood. Pictures of 'all things wise and wonderful' feature a little girl and her monkey surrounded by an elephant, a giraffe, a rhino, bears, rabbits, and birds. They cavort throughout the day and enjoy the pleasures of the natural world until night falls. With two lines to a sturdy page, this board book will be a nice introduction to the song for the very youngest.” --Booklist
Kirkus Reviews
The famous hymn is given beguiling illustrations in this board book. The verses break naturally with each page turn as a little girl plays with an animal menagerie in, appropriately, the great outdoors. As morning breaks, all the characters dangle from trees and sprawl on the grass. As the book progresses, the focus turns to individual interactions and observations, the only constant being the little girl and her monkey companion. The youngster leans against the tree's branch as she looks eye-to-eye with an owl and her owlets, but butterflies, frogs, bunnies and so on are not visible. The child has baby-doll dresses, sturdy legs and disproportionately tiny arms, bringing whimsy to her solemn regard of the natural world. The day turns to twilight as the child explores landscapes and seasons. The reverent respect for the Creator that is evident in the text is not overt in the illustrations, though they complement the famous song beautifully. These softly lyrical illustrations befit the traditional hymn. (Board book. 6 mos.-3)
