"May every creature abound in well-being and peace." (Buddhist)
Around the world and throughout time, people have found words for comfort, strength, rejoicing, and mourning. Prayers, proverbs, poems, songs--every culture has these simple gifts. In this beautiful, oversized volume, Reeve Lindbergh, daughter of Anne Morrow Lindbergh and Charles Lindbergh and author of many picture books, including The Circle of Days, gathers 77 poems and prayers in this warm, lovely collection. Each of the four sections (For the Day, For the Home, For the Earth, and For the Night) is illustrated by a different contemporary artist. Some two-page spreads consist of just one poem with a big, gorgeous illustration swirling all around. Others fit two, three, or even four proverbs or verses, nestled gracefully among the pictures. The book will make a lovely gift for families that want to embrace spirituality in many forms, from Christian to Papago to Jewish to African to Sioux to Hindu to Celtic, and beyond. Featuring well-known prayers and poems (from the Bible and Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass) and less familiar words (from Lao-Tzu and Hildegard of Bingen), this anthology, with its wonderful variety of colorful illustrations, will bring joy and beauty to every home forever and ever. Amen. (All ages) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
Christine Davenier, who lives in Paris, says she loved illustrating poems about mountains, the ocean, water, sand, flowers, and stones. "Now I want to move to the country," she says.
Bob Graham says he was drawn to illustrate IN EVERY TINY GRAIN OF SAND by "its generosity of spirit."
Anita Jeram especially enjoyed painting "all of those dark skies, stars, and the moon."
Elisa Kleven says she found the poems in "For the Home" in this anthology "deeply comforting."
Reeve Lindbergh says of IN EVERY TINY GRAIN OF SAND, "It is a joy to see familiar and beloved words from my own childhood come to life again for other children in the presence of such beautiful paintings by four remarkable artists."
