The Lively Garden Prayer Book by William Cleary is a bright and gladsome collection of poems in which plants, beetles, dogs, cats, worms, and aphids sing their praises to the Great God of Sky and Earth. There's even room in this backyard theology for poison ivy, tics, weeds, dung, and the "maggot's magnificat." The blessings range from A (Acorn) to Z (Zucchini).
