Reviews
"Another gorgeous story from Glenys Nellist. This time, Glenys masterfully draws us into the rhythm and rhymes of the seasons and how they speak (and sing!) of God's goodness and presence in this world." -Caryn Rivadeneira, author of the newly released Frankinschool: The Cupsnake Escape and Grit and Grace: Heroic Women of the Bible

"For many generations the Psalms have shaped our spiritual imaginations, immersing us in a world where trees clap their hands and stones shout in praise of their Maker. Inspired by Psalm 98, Song of the Seasons calls young readers to explore just such a world--one where every season has its own music and way of witnessing to the presence of God in the midst of change. Friendship and exploration are also woven into the vibrant illustrations of this gentle and reassuring hymn of praise." -Laura Alary, award-winning author of Here: The Dot We Call Home and many other books

"Psalm 98 begins by encouraging us to sing a new song to God. Through delightful rhymes and wonderful imagery, in word and picture, Song of the Seasons encourages us to listen deeply to the songs of God all around us in creation. Listening deeply, children and adults alike may also hear the song of God in their own hearts." --Bishop David Alan Bard, Michigan Area of The United Methodist Church

"The combination of Glenys Nellist's simple, elegant use of rhyme and illustrator C. B. Canga's whimsical illustrations and deft use of color make Song of the Seasons a truly special book. Children and their grownups are invited to "hear the seasons speak" and to remember that God made us, and we are good. What a lovely book...for any time of year!" --Jennifer Grant, author of Maybe God Is Like That Too and What If I Can't Explain God?

"Song of the Seasons is a playful and beautiful book with the overarching message that God is with us always. The colorful, lively illustrations bring the rhythmic verses to life on each page. This is a wonderful addition to a church or home library to showcase Psalm 98 in a child-friendly way." --Rev. Kathy Pittenger, Children's Initiatives Coordinator, Michigan Conference of The United Methodist Church

"I want my children to grow up knowing and believing God loves them no matter what. Song of the Seasons makes this message crystal clear in ways that both literal and metaphorical thinkers will appreciate. Written in the lovely lyrical style we've come to expect from Glenys Nellist, this book does not disappoint. Thank you, Glenys, for writing another book my family will treasure for years to come." --Traci Smith, author of the Faithful Families series

"Song of the Seasons" is a captivating book that beautifully celebrates the unique beauty of each season, reflecting the marvels of God's creation. Glenys Nellist skillfully captures nature's praises through poetic and action-filled verses inspired by Psalm 98. The colorful illustrations by C.B. Canga vividly animate the wonders of the natural world, captivating young readers and fostering a deep appreciation for the Earth's intricacies. Nellist's poetic writing and Canga's lively artwork blend seamlessly to create a moving portrayal of the seasons, making this book essential for those exploring the connection between nature and spirituality." --Roger Hutchison, author of Sparrow's Prayer "I adore the penmanship and tender, warm, and gentle mysticism of author Glenys Nellist, who was born and raised in Northern England (but now lives in Michigan.) Her books have been acclaimed and celebrated. This new one is well written, a lovely reflection on the four passing seasons. As it says on the back, we are invited to "Join all of creation in a song of praise to our Creator through the unique beauty of every season of the year." --Byron Borger, Hearts & Minds
