This book is a wonderful way to teach children that the world has a Creator. The rhymes are cleverly written, and the illustrations are stunning, authentic reflections of the beauty that exists in our world. When the child in the story draws his own picture, it becomes obviously apparent that an Artist must have created the natural “pictures” that surround us. The message of this book is not limited to young children, and I felt older children would enjoy it as well. While it says the book is geared towards children ages 2-5, I felt the rhymes were delightful and would be enjoyed by older children up to age 8. Highly recommend!
