I got to sing this with my Grandma's 83 year old sister. Pretty cool. I have always liked this gospel and was at first taken aback that it changed genders on each page. My great-aunt had the same problem. We enjoyed singing it though and talking about the beautiful pictures with her grandson, my 4-year old cousin who was singing with us by the end as he picked up the tune. He loved the details of the pictures and had us pause our singing long enough to look at each page before continuing.

Based on the song we all know, this book is extra neat because at the end the author goes through each part of the song and discusses for children why each part is important (ie- rivers, mountains, etc) and what we can do (briefly) to help preserve them. I did have to change the wording occasionally to avoid evolutionary-theory.
