Psalms For Kids: Psalm 19 is written by Sherri Trudgian and illustrated in bright watercolor by Melanie Moreland. In Psalm 19 we read, "The heavens declare the glory of God," and this book will show children how creation displays God's glory. Everywhere we look in nature, we see indications of our great Creator and Designer. In the text of the book, the sun says:
"Up in the sky
Sun talks to me
"Look up, Look up."
I hear her say --
"Look up and see
"I warm the earth,
Give light to see --
The flowers, birds,
Next, the stars, mountains, thunder clouds, trees, snow, and ocean waves take their turn in glorifying God for His handiwork. Your child will also learn how God's word tells us of His glory, and how God created each child to display His glory as well.
What I Like: This book is so glorifying to God, and is a wonderful depiction in picture and verse of Psalm 19.
What I Dislike: I don't dislike anything about this book.
Overall Rating: Excellent
Age Appeal: The publisher doesn't specify, but I would say ages 4-8.
