Joy, wonder, sadness, regret--the psalms display the full richness of our emotions. In Psalms for Young Children, children can also express their feelings to God. Combining simple yet powerful images with equally simple but powerful text, this gentle collection paraphrases the Psalms so young readers can experience different emotions toward God. For example, Psalm 18 becomes "God is like a warm, dry place during a storm. He protects me from things that might hurt me." Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
The Psalms describe a whole range of emotions, from joy and wonder to sadness and regret. This collection of Psalms, paraphrased for young readers, uses simple yet powerful imagery to help children express their feelings
