Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The brief text in this book calls for a blessing on all of the plants and animals, great and small, who share the beautiful earth. Wolff's illustrations are big and bold, and full of color. They will offer children plenty to point to and talk about. An ideal choice for a family library or a Sunday school collection.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2A lovely, tender poem that extols nature's wonders, calling for blessings upon many things: each flower and tree, bear and hare, whale and snail, ant and cactus plant, stream and moonbeam, etc., culminating in a special blessing for each birth on Earth. The lines of large, clear print are placed in gentle curves upon magnificent double-page spreads that depict, in glowing oils, scenes such as meadows pink with apple blossoms, bears fishing in a foaming river, giraffes and elephants on a tawny African plain, and wild ducks diving in a shimmering pool. Each painting, done with bold lines, rich color, and solid forms, is alive with minute details. Backgrounds include barn swallows soaring, poppies blooming amid stalks of rye, and field mice huddling around their nest. Life is celebrated exuberantly in both text and art.Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
