We received a complimentary copy of the book, All Things Bright and Beautiful by Cecil Frances Alexander for our review. All opinions are our own.
I simply adore little books like these. They are brightly illustrated, have short sentences to keep little ones attention and on the pages where there are no written words, they can use their imagination and make up their own story.
This book was actually written back in 1848! Yes, you read that right, 1848! An artist by the name of Katy Hudson brought the story back to life through her watercolors!
This book is really a neat book! I think your little ones will enjoy it!
About the book:
First published by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848, this favorite hymn has become a mainstay of churches and Sunday school classes everywhere. Here artist Katy Hudson brings new joy to the words with her fresh and bright watercolor style. Readers can join in the fun as they follow two little girls and their brother on a day filled with the discovery of “all things bright and beautiful.”
About the artist:
Katy Hudson was raised in Middlesbrough, England, and started her career as a small child drawing on freshly painted walls. Her parents quickly encouraged drawing with pencil and paper instead. The idea stuck, and after earning a degree in illustration, Katy is now a freelance illustrator. Katy works at a desk in a studio within Old London Library and likes to tap dance in her spare time.
