Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), the essayist and poet, is widely considered one of the most important thinkers of nineteenth-century America.From Booklist:
Ages 3-8. Emerson's passionate regard for nature and his advocacy of environmentalism are his legacy to us and one that young readers will experience in this beautiful book based on his classic poem. Emerson's philosophy is expressed in his thankfulness to the Father for the flowers, the tender grass, the bird songs, the streams and sky, the breezes, and the blooming trees. Graham's lovely impressionistic oil paintings are a resonant accompaniment to the words. They sing with brilliant cool shades of blue and green, bright flashes of yellow, hot red, or orange. The deeply spiritual aspects of the poem are made accessible with scenes of a family hiking together, discovering mountain vistas, and apple trees in bloom. A brother and sister leap and run, watch an owl in flight, and roast marshmallows--sweet images set against the quiet five-syllable refrain, "Father, we thank you." REVWR
