All Things Bright + Giveaway




How does she know this from memory? It was actually a class assignment from her 2nd grade teacher. They memorized a portion of this beautiful song/hymn by Cecil Frances Alexander.


Oh, the thrills when this book came in the mail! My daughter was ready to fill in the missing lines that they did not memorize.



This story is so beautifully illustrated by Katy Hudson. Very soft imagery that flows along with the words. The children are just so into their surroundings. They're just checking out all the wonderful things God created for us to look at and explore. 

About the Book
First published by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848, this favorite hymn has become a mainstay of churches and Sunday school classes everywhere. Here artist Katy Hudson brings new joy to the words with her fresh and bright watercolor style. Readers can join in the fun as they follow two little girls and their brother on a day filled with the discovery of “all things bright and beautiful.”

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.
