Summer Reading: All Things Bright and Beautiful Review & Giveaway #AllThingsBrightAndBeautiful #FlyBy

Written by Cecil Francis Alexander
Illustrated by Katy Hudson

I have a unique book to share with you today.  You might be familiar with the hymn All Things Bright and Beautiful. Well, is that hymn written with gorgeous illustrations from Katy Hudson. The book brings the wonder of childhood and exploration of this beautiful world God created for us. It is a stunning book and a true treasure!

About the book:

First published by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848, this favorite hymn has become a mainstay of churches and Sunday school classes everywhere. Here artist Katy Hudson brings new joy to the words with her fresh and bright watercolor style. Readers can join in the fun as they follow two little girls and their brother on a day filled with the discovery of “all things bright and beautiful.”

About the artist:

Katy Hudson was raised in Middlesbrough, England, and started her career as a small child drawing on freshly painted walls. Her parents quickly encouraged drawing with pencil and paper instead. The idea stuck, and after earning a degree in illustration, Katy is now a freelance illustrator. Katy works at a desk in a studio within Old London Library and likes to tap dance in her spare time.
