“Birds pray, trees pray, flowers pray, mountains pray, the winds and rain pray, rivers and the little insects pray as well. The whole earth is in constant prayer, and we can join with its great prayer,” says award-winning author and illustrator Paul Goble.
Every element of creation ― from the magpie to the minnow ― glorifies God in its own way in this bold and brightly illustrated work, adapted from The Book of Common Prayer. Goble invites readers to join with the land and the animals in singing praise to God.

Grade 1-4–An author's note introduces this story as an adaptation of the song from TheLiturgy of the Hours and The Book of Common Prayer. The basis of this text is the song of praise that saved Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from death in the furnace from the Book of Daniel. Goble includes the familiar verse, in which heavens, angels, sun, moon, and the entire Earth sing songs of praise, and includes animals and plants of America as additional elements that also send out prayers to God. Dandelions, meadowlarks, cranes, vultures, and moths are raised to the level of stars of heaven and winds of God in singing praise. The refrain, "praise him, and magnify him forever," appears after each element sings its praise. Fans of Goble's distinctive style will enjoy examining the detailed illustrations. A white buffalo calf rubs noses with others in his herd, woodpeckers nestle in birches, and great sturgeons swim among sunfishes and trout. Goble also honors the natural world, and the book never becomes didactic or preachy. An attractive, contemporary offering.–Shawn Brommer, South Central Library System, Madison, WI
