Sing a New Song, 1997 first edition, by Bijou Le Tord.


Written and illustrated by Bijou Le Tord. First edition, 1997. William B. Eerdman's Publishing Company, Grand Rapids MI and Cambridge UK.

"The Lord is like a sun,
shining on the universe."
- Psalm 85:11


"The life-giving light of the sun, the miracle of little seeds springing from the soil, and the wondrous cycle of the season are all part of God's magnificent creation. As the Psalmists discovered, the harmony of nature offers one of the most beautiful evidences of the majesty of God and his love for the world."

Artist Bijou Le Tord's charming yet expertly done watercolors distill the complex beauty of the Psalms to a child's simpler understanding of God. Le Tord was born in St. Raphael, France in 1945 and attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Lyon. She moved to New York City at eighteen and published her first book in 1976, A Perfect Place to Be. Le Tord has been a popular children's book author and illustrator with the American Library Association, Horn Books, and Publisher's Weekly, which named Sing a New Song "Best Religion Book for Children" for 1997. She's created more than twenty children's books, including Rabbit Seeds, Joseph and Nellie, and My Grandma Leonie, and other religious themed books, including Peace on Earth: A Book of Prayers from Around the World and Noah's Trees. She began a series on 20th century artists, and completed Monet and Matisse.
