Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Along with the jaunty verse (actually the lyrics of a well-known hymn) as sunny as this paper-over-board book's bright yellow cover, Wilhelm (the Dinofours series) introduces a downy, daffodil-hued duckling happy in its role as one of Jesus' chosen little ones. "Jesus wants me for a sunbeam,/ To shine for Him each day./ In every way to please Him,/ At home, at school.../ ...at play." Very young children will want to dive right into the breezy watercolor-and-pencil scenes crafted with an up-close, duckling's-eye-view perspective and awash in comforting, golden light. Young readers will also easily grasp the theme of striving to be a shining example of Jesus' lessons about kindness, love and acceptance. Ages 3-5 (Feb.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

This book is simply a marvelous illustration of an old hymn, which as a Presbyterian I did not learn until after I bought the book and learned that it appears in some Baptist hymnals. The range of the song is a little great for preschoolers to sing, but they love to try anyway, and the illustrations provide a wonderful lesson about showing God's love by helping others.

It's writing style is best for improving reading skills. There isn't much of a story, but the duckling is adorable!
