Best-selling composer Marty Haugen's "Child of Wonder" is one of the most beloved of all his songs. Written for the baptism of his godson, the lyrics celebrate the sacredness of human life and delight in the lives of children.
Now in this wonderful book, prepared in collaboration with Marty Haugen, artist Stephen Nesser accompanies the lyrics with scenes of birth and new life rituals from faith traditions and cultures around the world and then shows these growing children as they play together to form community. The vibrant illustrations are a perfect compliment to Haugen's inspired poetry.
Included with the volume is a link to a free mp3 download of the song as well as the full notation of "Child of Wonder" for families who wish to sing as they page through the beautiful paintings.
This is truly a book infused with meaning—something for children and families everywhere to cherish.
