Beauty. Nature. Wonder all around us. Celebration. The words of St. Francis of Assisi have been "reimagined" for our children in an unexpected book that offers a chance to sit still and appreciate the wonderful world that surrounds us every minute of every day. The water, the sun, the plants growing and nourishing us, and those who "offer their lives to the making of peace" in this "world of hatred and war." We are given so many gifts and here is a chance to sit and share them with children. The words are warm and reassuring and are paired with gentle, artful, happy drawings showing the brightness of the world against a constant black background. There is a medieval quality to the artwork with the design of the patterns and the small stories being told in small spaces. This is a book that helps you stop and hold still and take in all the good things in the world around us. A gem. Ages 4-9
