I Will Rejoice

"I Will Rejoice" by Karma Wilson (Zonderkidz) was created to celebrate Psalm 118:24 "The is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."

This is a story about a little girl told in the first person. She takes us through her day praising God for all that happens.

"I'll dress myself up, sit down in my seat, and give thanks to the Lord for the food that I eat. This is the day that the Lord has made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it."

The illustrations by Amy June Bates are soft and traditional.

"I will rejoice in a warm, cozy lap, as I hear a good story before my noon nap. I'll lie down and dream about castles and kings, princes and dragons with shimmering wings. This is the day that the Lord has made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it."

Karma Wilson has other similar books if you are interested. "Let's Make a Joyful Noise: Celebrating Psalm 100" and "Give Thanks to the Lord: Celebrating Psalm 92" (which is a Thanksgiving-themed book).
