“I will rejoice as I run and I play. Thank you, dear God, for this beautiful day!”
Based on Psalm 118:24, I Will Rejoice teaches us how to find joy in each day God has made. We can appreciate the simple, everyday things we do, from cuddling in a warm, cozy lap to being glad in the evening light. There are lots of reasons to rejoice.
Children will love the rhyme. They’ll delight in looking for ways to be joyful during each day’s activities. This treasure of a book helps Scripture come alive.
“Written in rhyming couplets, the short, simple text blends the scriptural refrain with immediate details from a child’s world … a good sleepy-time choice.” ---Booklist

Karma Wilson's first poem was published at the tender age of six. The poem was ironically titled, "I Don't Wanna Write a Poem!" Growing up, she had no desire to write. But Providence had different plans, and now Karma writes poems for a living when she's not busy being a wife and raising three kids. Karma is the bestselling author of Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More, as well as If I Were a Mouse, Give Thanks to the Lord, and I Will Rejoice.
