A beautiful fiction picture book arrived in the mail this week!
I am grateful to receive a copy of ALL GOD’S CRITTERS SING ALLELU.
Written by pjlyons; illustrated by Carol Herring, Beaming Books, 2022.
This rhyming picture book uses all the English phonemes. I am grateful for the many critters Our Lord created.
A phoneme is the smallest unit of sound in speech. For example the word cat has three phonemes /c/ /a/ and /t/. Understanding phonemes supports language acquisition and reading readiness for ages 0-4. This rhyming picture book encourages kids to sing praises for God’s creations as the cats and dogs; crickets and frogs; cows and sheep sing praises too through a literary element of onomatopoeia.
“Frogs add rhythm, baroo, baroo,
All God’s critters sing allelu.
Bow-wow, meow, cocka-doodle-doo!
Cheep cheep, tweet tweet, coo-coo-coo.”
The words and the bright, colorful, and whimsical illustrations will engage the reader and wanting to turn the page.
Thank you, Pj for writing a book that kids love to read. Thank you for gifting this book to me that I will love to read to kids.
