Psalm 23: "God is my shepherd. He leads me in the right direction. And even if I have to walk in a dark place, I am not scared. I know nothing will hurt me if I walk with God!"
Psalm 88: "God, please listen to me. I am full of sadness, I am crying. I feel lonely and scared. Do you really love me? I'm calling you, God. Please comfort me!"
Psalm 108: "My heart is ready, God. I want to sing. I want to play music for you on the strings of a harp or on a beating drum. Your love is bigger than the earth and sky!"
The illustrations are bold and bright, ranging from vivid desert colors to cool nights full of stars.

I bought this hardback for my five year old son Buddy's Easter basket and look forward to sharing its poetry for years to come.
