This I Know by Clay Anderson is a lovely little children’s book about finding beauty in nature. The story begins with a girl waking her baby sister in excitement about the day ahead. Through rhyme and playful illustrations, we go on a trip with this child and her family. They go to the beach, then to the mountains. The child plays with her dog and hikes with her family. There are charming reminders of God in sunny and stormy skies. A brilliant rainbow reminds the reader of God's promise. Finally, they catch fireflies under the night sky and patiently wait to see a shooting star. The family is truly present in enjoying God's wonder in nature.
Clay Anderson's This I Know is a cute book! It is a Christian children’s book intended for that audience but even as a non-Christian, I still appreciated it. The theme of natural beauty resonates with most kids. I enjoyed the word choice and flow of the book. The rhymes are easy to follow and I imagine kids being able to read along after a few times of hearing the story. I especially liked the illustrations which were colorful and optimistic. The theme of the book is simply explored and consistently uncomplicated throughout. Unlike many Christian children’s picture books that are full of scriptures, this one only hints at God. This title makes a nice bedtime story or book for emergent readers. It would also make a cute book to accompany your kids on camping or road trip!
