"Beautiful Blessings" - A Treasury of Prayers, Poems and Verses


Young children will enjoy the beautiful illustrations and poetry in this book as well as practicing their penmanship (printing) by tracing dotted letters.  We share 58 delightful poems about God's creation and our relationship with Him as His children.  These include 41 original poems by author and magazine editor Joymarie Dunlap on topics that include flowers, sunshine, rainbows, swinging, bubbles, the seashore, snow, birds, singing, family, kindness, and sharing.

We have also included 17 poems by other authors on the subject of prayer and thankfulness.  Two of those poems are by well known authors Louisa May Alcott and Fanny Crosby, written at age 8.  This book also includes 15 Bible verses, and 44 delightful, wholesome, old-fashioned paintings of children and their natural surroundings by famous artists, along with illustrations of things kids love, such as birds, butterflies, animals, fruit, flowers, and toys.

This book strengthens children's spiritual values in a gentle, natural, enjoyable way.  And while the trace manuscript penmanship in this book is designed for kids in kindergarten to 3rd grade (pre-cursive), kids as young as 3 and 4 years old will enjoy the poetry and pictures, as will some nature-loving kids ages 9, 10, and 11 as well.

In the homeschool world, copybooks are a dime a dozen. Literally, I can go to my used bookstore and come home with armloads full. The discerning parent, however, is ever on the lookout for the beautiful, interesting volume to inspire and instruct her [...]

The photos in this book are beautiful. We love the old-fashioned look though. One of our daughters said she thought this handwriting book was cute and she really liked the poem about the baby titled, "God is Giving Our Family a Baby" (Page 70 [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
