Publishers WeeklyWith exuberant jewel-toned illustrations that suggest a folk-art quilt, and a bouncy rhyming text, Greene and Broxon interpret Psalms 140 and 150, in which all living creation praises God. Playful words and phrasing add to the fun for younger readers in such verse as "Barn doves coo as milk cows moo/ in beastly, joyful song./ Horses n-ei-eigh while donkeys br-a-ay/ as piglets join along. Oink!" The combination of cheery animals and vibrant naturescapes replete with rainbows, rolling ocean waves, lily pads and sunflowers, convey the joyous energy of these much-loved biblical passages. Children will be entertained identifying the jaunty menagerie here and will likely delight in the general color and sound of the proceedings. All ages. (Jan.)

Children's Literature - Carlee HallmanThis adaptation of Psalm 148 and Psalm 150 in rollicking four line rhymes will delight children. "Horses n-ei-eigh while donkeys br-a-ay," rivers trickle, mountains, Sun and Moon, seasons, and people sing and dance songs of praise to God their creator. The vibrant watercolor pictures carry out the theme. A two-page spread shows a monkey blowing a horn, a bird on an elephant, a bear, tiger, fish in a stream, leopard, zebra, giraffe, mouse, frog, squirrel, butterfly, and crocodile. Animals and people smile throughout the book. Children of various ethnic backgrounds are pictured dancing across the globe. The colorful pages are bordered by dotted material embroidered with a blanket stitch. Little children will enjoy pointing out all the wonderful sights. The playful rhymes and joyful illustrations will lift the spirits of parents and children as they read and praise God.
