Children aged three to eight will gravitate toward this affirming, illuminating message about God's design, and the light of goodness that shines even in the darkest of times or corners.
"Let there be light " that's what God said.
And light began shining and then started to spread."
"In flickers and flashes,
In spills and in splashes,
Shine began SHINING across
Nothing but blackness."
Wild and creative illustrations from top children's illustrator David Catrow pair with Matthew Paul Turner's lyrical verse in this message of a God-made light that cuts through darkness to bring vision and hope to all young readers. This light radiates, chasing away the shadows, providing the wonder and fun of stargazing or firefly chasing. Most important, this light appears in each child--an inner God-given spark that grows and will be used to change the world.
