Give Thanks to the Lord: Celebrating Psalm 92

Karma Wilson, Author, Amy June Bates, Illustrator , illus. by Amy June Bates. ZonderKidz $14.99 (24p) ISBN 978-0-310-71118-6

Noted picture-book scribe Wilson again teams with Bates—the pair also created I Will Rejoice: Celebrating Psalm 118 —for a follow-up project that spotlights a biblical psalm. This time around, Wilson ties in references to the titular refrain from Psalm 92 with an account of a family’s Thanksgiving Day celebration. In rhyming text, a child recounts all the sounds, sights and smells of the November holiday, citing the joys of family, food and fun. Playing in piles of leaves, warming up with apple cider and settling on the couch post-feast with a full belly are among the experiences for which the child expresses thanks to God. Bates’s wispy lined pencil-and-watercolor illustrations exude a warmth that is sure to be especially welcome on chilly autumn days, and a joyful spirit appreciated any time of year. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
