This is the Day! by Nancy White Carlstrom has some of the most beautiful illustrations I've ever seen in a children's book. They cover each and every page. The scenes are gorgeous, depicting the beauty of the earth, such as animals, oceans, meadows, forests, waterfalls, and coasts. Simply breath-taking!

Unfortunately, I didn't feel that the text could equal the beauty of the illustrations. The way the text appeared led me to believe that it was going to be poetic and yet I could find no poetic rhyme to it. The theology of celebrating God's creation because "This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it" (Psalm 118:24) is questionable. The psalmist may not be exhorting his readers to rejoice in Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and so forth, as the author leads us to believe. In fact, the "day" the psalmist is referring to may have another meaning entirely - that of the day when Christ returns. All in all, it is definitely a wonderful book to look at. The encouragement to rejoice in God's creation every day is a good reminder and, yet, to use a debated Bible verse to promote this concept made it difficult for me to read. -- Jennifer Joneleit, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    For yummy eye candy, This is the Day! by Nancy White Carlstrom is a favorite book in our house.Written in free verse style, this gorgeous volume celebrates Psalm 118:24 ("This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.") by highlighting the beauty and wonder of God's creation. The text is airy, asking us to appreciate some aspect of nature each day of the week:"Sniff the garden's sweet rose,and your nose might meet a tiny tree frog.Clap for the river otter who flaps in waterbut waddles across the grassthrough cottonwood fuzz,finding his way from the pond to the bay."But it's the splendid illustrations by Richard Cowdrey, focusing on breath-taking landscapes and amazing animals, that really makes this book special. Each page brings "ooohs" and "ahhs," from the deer shown nibbling red apples, to the fox eyeing some rabbits, to orca whales playing in the ocean. Even the endpapers, showing a bird's eye view of luscious green islands at sunset, are spectacular.What I Like: The illustrations in this book are exceptional. My daughter also loves pointing out the blue heron found on every two page spread. The reminder to "Let all creation lift its voice.This is the day the Lord has made.Rejoice! Rejoice!"is also appreciated.What I Dislike: For the most part, I find the text a bit fluffy. More substance would make this book a classic.Overall Rating: Very good.
