Review of All Things Bright and Beautiful


All Things Bright and Beautiful is a wonderful little hardcover book whose contents contain just the words of the famous Cecil Frances Alexander hymn.

The book is filled with delightful little color illustrations of each of the stanzas, from the “bright and beautiful” rainbows to “great and small” creatures like elephants and turtles. Some of the illustrations are even embellished with special textures such as glitter on a river, a mountain, or the breath of the “cold wind in winter” to provide even more engagement for¬†youngsters.

This is not the sort of book to just “read”, but rather to explore with your little one–I’d say it’s great for any child age 2 or higher. Each page is filled with different illustrations perfect for very young children who are just learning to speak and read. Even younger children¬†will be enthralled by the bright colors and appealing illustrations. The poem itself is so simple but with a powerful message that both you and children will benefit from.

Highly recommended.
