Reviews

PreS-Gr 4-This gentle song is sung by Art Garfunkel on an accompanying CD. It is a celebration of the beauty of the seasons, the wonder of nature, and the meaning of faith. Hakkarainen's soft-focused, luminous illustrations grace each page. Some of the words and ideas are challenging for a young audience; for example, "In a world that can bring pain,/I will still take each chance-/For I believe that whatever the terrain/Our feet can learn to dance." The concept of faith is stressed here, with the reference to believing "in a hand you cannot see." Nevertheless, go ahead, learn the song, and by all means, sing it from the heart.-Sandra Kitain, Abrams Hebrew Academy, Yardley, PA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

"Soft-focused, luminous illustrations grace each page. Go ahead, learn the song, and by all means, sing it from the heart."--School Library Journal "Lovely, just lovely."--Children's Literature "Warm and fuzzy illustrations."--The Horn Book "As you look around, you can find many things to be thankful for--the sky, the roof over your head, and even your heart and mind. Once you start counting all the good things in life, it's hard not to feel happy."--Brightly
