A favorite psalm becomes wonderfully accessible to children in this comforting new book from a Caldecott Honor artist and the editor of IN EVERY TINY GRAIN OF SAND.
When I am lonely you are near,
When I am angry, you stay here.
High in heaven bright, you greet me,
Down in darkness, too, you meet me.
The bright morning light greets four children as they step into a day of joyful activity: climbing a tree, swimming through clear water, toasting marshmallows at twilight. And when they feel lost or lonely, friends are never very far away.
In this gentle adaptation of Psalm 139, Reeve Lindbergh and Holly Meade create a prayer of abiding love and hope - and a sun-dappled world where comfort is around every corner, and no one is truly alone.
