Cecil Frances Alexander was born in Ireland. She began writing poetry as a child and wrote nearly 400 hymns. She wrote All things Bright and Beautiful, one of her most popular, to help explain to children the opening words of the Apostles' Creed, a Christian statement of belief. The wife of an archbishop, she was known to be a generous woman who cared for the poor and opened a school for the deaf with her sister.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2-Whatley has interpreted this 19th-century hymn, which celebrates both nature and the omnipotence of the Creator, in beautiful, panoramic watercolor paintings. They feature a girl dressed in dungaree overalls, a straw hat, and boots walking on a farm with her dog. The illustrations are consistent in their wonderful, soft colors. However, the artist's talent overwhelms the simple text. Notes and lyrics appear on the last two pages.
