K Up An outstanding, refreshingly different collection of poems giving thanks, asking blessings and celebrating the beauty and variety of creation. The poems are drawn from many culturesEskimo, Guyanan, Tewa Indian, Islamic, East African, Japanese, Hindu, European and Americanand also include works of well-known poets such as Ogden Nash, Eleanor Farjeon and Langston Hughes. The text is on various levels of difficulty, from short and simple to longer and richly detailed, but all could be interpreted to small children. The elegant illustrations in dreamy soft-toned watercolors show many moods, from lively and joyful to pensive and peaceful. All are filled with meticulous details and expertly keyed to the word picture of each poem. The familiar world of cozy toys and country kitchens blends with the exotic ones of igloos, tepees and huts. A high interest level is maintained in the variety of settings and selections and the different ways in which the text and pictures are arranged on the pages. This holds up favorably against some stiff competition, such as Tasha Tudor's First Prayers (1952) and More Prayers (1967, both McKay); And God Bless Me, compiled by Lee Bennett Hopkins (Knopf, 1982) and A Child's Book of Prayers (Holt, 1985), illustrated by Michael Hague.
