‘This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.’ Psalm 118:24
(Grace had a struggle reviewing this book–I don’t know if it is the book or her. I did not read it yet so that it would be her review and not mine).
Grace believes the point of “This Is the Day!” is to praise God and praise God for the animals.
It is about God’s creation and the days of the week. The main characters are animals. It’s not really a story but a book that gives ideas about God.
Grace says that this is a happy book because it is about God. She loves God.
We both love the beautiful, colorful pictures. Grace’s favorite is the title page with the pretty bird and sunset. Mine is the one of the insects and purple flowers.
Grace recommends “This Is the Day!” to everyone!
