In this charming and spirited retelling of Psalm 100:1 from celebrated children's author Karma Wilson, youngsters observe a child discovering the fun and sheer joy of praising God. From birds singing and the church bells ringing to the lively worship service itself---where folks sing, clap, and shout, Hallelujah!---all creation seems to be joining together to celebrate God's goodness in this full-color picture book. Composed entirely in delightful add-on verse, each page builds on the one before, adding ding dongs to tweet-a-tweets and hums to taps to claps, until the entire congregation shouts, 'Let's make a joyful noise to the Lord!' Even the quiet prayer, we learn, is a joyful noise. Prereaders will love helping with sound effects while early readers will be amused by each deft rhyme in this satisfying and entertaining book for kids ages four to eight.

Karma Wilson's first poem was published at the tender age of six. The poem was ironically titled, 'I Don't Wanna Write a Poem!' Growing up, she had no desire to write. But Providence had different plans, and now Karma writes poems for a living when she's not busy being a wife and raising three kids. Karma is the bestselling author of Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More, as well as Let's Make a Joyful Noise, Give Thanks to the Lord, and I Will Rejoice.
