"Caldecott Medalist Goble has created a stunning prayer of praise. . . Goble's instantly recognizable illustration style is at its best, from the herd of charging wild horses on the cover to the snowy mountain on the final page."
Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Goble's sweeping vistas . . . show a gorgeous cross-section of God's gifts to the world."
Children's Literature "The author . . . here combines the song of praise to God from creatures and elements of the earth with distinctive watercolor illustrations in his signature style. . . . Many parents and church schools will find this lovely book an asset, both to help children see the relationship of an ancient religious text to our own time and place and to make vivid the timeless world of the Black Hills."
