Based off of a hymn by Saint Francis of Assisi in 1225, this book is a prayer to God thanking him for all the things we have on this earth Illustrations are beautiful but one would have to be careful how it was used in the classroom setting since it is somewhat religious There is a theme of Thanksgiving and gratitude in this book which makes it a good choice when teaching this character building moral to children.
I didn t look through this at the library, just chose it based on cover and title alone It s a prayer thanking God for all of creation and has neat illustrations to go along It s not overtly religious, however, just saying thank the Lord in the beginning and end Really a nice book.
I have this in hardback, and it s even better.
A lovely picture book version of a prayer by St Fancis of Assisi.
Nicely done version of Canticle of the Sun by St Francis of Assisi A book about thankfulness for the world around us Lovely illustrations
A dull version of this classic.
Beautiful book based on St Francis Canticle of the Sun Beautiful illustrations A prayer of thank and praise for all creation.
4 1 2 beautifully illustrated I don t think we appreciated the text as much as we did the style of the illustrations.
I love this children s book, I keep it in reach as a reminder to stay in a place of appreciation.
A beautiful rendition of the Cantile to the Sun by St Francis Gorgeous.
