Reviews

"Colorful photographs and large, bold text fulfill the title's promise. The photographs are top-notch...Little ones will enjoy the verses and photographs at face value, while elementary school-aged students may well read the simple--although far from simplistic--verses right through to the weightier prose at the end."--Kirkus Reviews
"The carefully crafted verse, with its rhymes and repeated sounds, should be a pleasure to read aloud--Sayre's skillful use of enjambment is notable, too. ...A splendid marriage of poetry and photography."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"[Sayre] uses vivid, full-color photos paired with simple lines that poetically and artistically tie to the images...The photographs truly make the book pop, and Sayre's adoration for her subject shines through. This would be a great addition to an ecologically themed storytime."--Booklist
"Sayre offers a powerful expression of gratitude for all that planet Earth has to offer. Vivid nature photography accompanies the prayerlike text."--Publishers Weekly
