Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Carlstrom, author of the Jesse Bear series, offers a poetic look at the connection between God and nature, basing her free-verse text on a well-known Bible verse ("This is the day the Lord has made"). Day by day through the week, each spread offers a brief bit of advice in bold text about praising God or celebrating the wonders of nature, followed by a short, graceful description of the animals and natural wonders shown in the illustrations, which are set in the islands of the Pacific Northwest. The text uses active verbs and sensory details to draw the reader into the setting with descriptive phrases that are usually successful but sometimes a little overblown or too metaphorical for the intended audience ("Call out cloud shapes the sky has made / and watch light / walk across the water"). Cowdrey's realistic paintings capture the intriguing birds and beasts of the area, from herons and eagles to harbor seals and orca whales, with a dandy orca breaching on the front cover. (Picture book/religion. 4-7)

Meet the Author

Nancy White Carlstrom started writing when she was seven years old and has been writing ever since. She says, "I write when I am happy and when I am sad, and especially when I celebrate God’s creation. When you read This Is the Day, I hope it will cause you to look at your world and be surprised by wonder every day of the week."

Richard Cowdrey’s favorite things to draw and paint are the things that reflect the awesomeness of God and His creation. From vast landscapes to the littlest bug on a leaf, Richard marvels at the beauty in the details. Richard's bestselling children's books include Bad Dog, Marley and A Very Marley Christmas.
