Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Psalm 18 and its joyful refrain "This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it," is the peaceful focus of a child's thoughts throughout her busy day in this reassuring picture book. Whether she's getting dressed, having a tea party with a playmate and their teddy bears or greeting her father as he returns home from work, the young narrator takes the time to recognize and appreciate God's gifts present in her life. Though it may be idealistic to think that young children have such a big concept always in their consciousness, Wilson's (Bear Snores On) text, akin to a checklist of blessings, will help remind readers of all they possess. In her loose pencil-and-watercolor illustrations, Bates (Pumpkin Cat) places the action in comforting, contemporary, universal situations that many children will recognize. Together, art and text create a resonant coziness. Ages 4-8. (Feb.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    This beautiful book based on the verse 'This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!' is beautiful. It reminds my daughter and me that there are many things to thank the Lord for through out the day!
