It's a Brand New Day!

By Donald Leslie Slater and Kenny D. Shaw

Children are reintroduced to the beauty of nature found all around them in the new book It's a Brand New Day by Donald Leslie Slater and Kenny D. Shaw.

This book is aimed at Christian parents and grandparents who are wanting to turn the attention of their young loved ones to "God's creation on display."  Filled with beautiful photographs of nature scenes and wildlife, It's a Brand New Day is a refreshing yet simple reminder of the beauty that can be found if one takes the time to be still for a moment.

Written in both English and Spanish, the words in each short sentence correlates to the song of the same name available on an optional companion CD. As the lyrics of the song repeat, so too does the wording in the book. Initially it might be distracting to see pages repeated, however when realizing it correlates to music, the book will actually seem to flow rhythmically.

An interesting section extolling the virtue of and value of mothers, fathers, grandparents and veterans is located at the end of the book. Each short section is accompanied by a page to write down ideas of ways to honor each. Additionally, the words to three of Shaw’s songs, “Lord of Love,” “Master of the Universe” and “A Song That Has No End“, are also included within the pages of the book and the optional companion CD.

Children and adults alike will enjoy the imagery and simple message found in this short unique book.
