This is a beautiful book, to be sure. Cut paper illustrations are amazingly detailed and add quite a bit to this updated prayer of St. Francis. It's worth noting that Paterson changes the original hymn some and includes a reference to "mother earth" at the end that may make some uncomfortable. It makes the hymn sound a bit more pantheistic than the original, in my opinion.
