All Things Bright and Beautiful Children's Book {Review and Giveaway}

We had the great opportunity to receive the new children's book All Things Bright and Beautiful thanks to FlyBy Promotions. 

About the book:

You may know this as a hymn first published by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848.  It has become a mainstay of churches and Sunday school classes everywhere. I have read other versions of this hymn turned into a children's book, but this is by far my favorite. I love the sweet, colorful illustrations that artist Katy Hudson has created.  Her fresh and bright watercolor style bring something new to this beloved hymn. Each double page spread is a complete scene, fully painted in with beautiful details which illustrate one phrase of the hymn which is printed in a large flowing font.

In this book, the reader joins three young children on a day filled with the discovery of “all things bright and beautiful.” They are wandering through the fields and by the river, admiring all of God's creation they come across.

Here are a couple of my favorite pages.

Aren't the illustrations lovely?

This 32-page, jacketed hardcover book is beautiful and I highly recommend it. The book is recommended for children 4-7 years old.

Retail Price: $15.99
You can purchase All Things Bright and Beautiful on Amazon.

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.
