Description

ECPA bestseller

"The book opens with two young black girls with hair in cornrows, a rambunctious mutt, and a playful cat engrossed in creative indoor play. The rhyming text seems to draw the girls outside as sunshine spills through their large window. "Dance in the grass. / Go climbing in trees. / Build castles with sand. / Face the wind; feel its breeze." Ebullient illustrations in Catrow's signature style depict the two girls and their pets as they frolic and explore in their own backyard and beyond, employing chiaroscuro with often dramatic effect. Throughout, both pictures and text revel in God's creation, light in particular and its glowing presence in the sun, moon, and stars as well as within the children themselves...A life-affirming exploration of the common grace of creation and appreciation of the miraculous in every day." -Kirkus Reviews

"This is a joyful riot of colors and enthusiastic children and pets playing and celebrating how amazing and wondrous our universe is. Filled with fanciful and bold illustrations, it makes me smile every time I read it. Your kids will, too!"
-Doc Kirby, WTBF, Troy, AL

I am a huge fan of Matthew Paul Turner. He is an amazing author. This is a beautiful story. It's a message that's easy for kids to understand. Would make such a wonderful baby shower gift. All his children's books are worth checking out.

I am a huge fan of Matthew Paul Turner’s books. His rhymes and messages, along with the illustrations, are simply breathtaking. He somehow makes such big, profound life lessons become clear for little ones to understand, like how much God loves them and how He is inside of them all the time no matter what.
