All Things Bright and Beautiful Children's Book Giveaway!


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.

 My Thoughts

This is such a beautiful book. I love the hymn by Cecil Frances Alexander and I like that the history of it is added in the back of the book. Each page is vibrant and captivating for younger eyes and the many animals on the pages make it all the more fun. I read this book to the kids I take care of and they just loved it. This is a rather large book (which makes it all the better) and as an adult I couldn't help but love the little butterflies and details throughout the story. Katy Hudson did a wonderful job incorporating the hymn. This is a must buy! 
Five Stars!

Illustrations can make or break a picture book: The art looks adorable on this one and what a neat way to introduce a classic hymn to children. =)
