Beautiful Thoughts

Children’s Books About Grace and Beauty

The two books below are lovely ways to teach children about God’s grace and the wonder of His creations.

Give Me Grace  A Child’s Daybook of Prayers by Cynthia Rylant is a beautifully illustrated board book, with a prayer for each day of the week. They are lovely meditations for all members of the family:

"Monday make me good and kind

to all the creatures that I find. 

Help me love God's whole creation. 

Make my life a celebration."


All Things Bright and Beautiful, Written By Cecil Frances Alexander, Illustrated By Katy Hudson is the entire classic hymn, with joyful illustrations for children. This new book was published this year and deserves a special place in family libraries.

We have sung the first two stanzas of  “All Things Bright and Beautiful” in class, so the children will love hearing the complete lyrics as a poem. This is a happy book that will charm all ages.

"All things bright and beautiful,

All Creatures great and small.

All things wise and wonderful:

The Lord God made them all."
