The O in Hope
What do an orangutan, an ostrich, an orange, and the ocean all have in common?
They all begin with the letter O!
But other words also have an O—words like mouth or moon or wow,
and even the word hope.
Combining a joyful poem from the much-celebrated poet Luci Shaw with playful cut-paper art created by Ned Bustard, The O in Hope helps us experience the goodness of God's gifts of hope and love.
This delightful book can be enjoyed by children and the adults who read with them. Also included is a note from the author to encourage further conversation about the content.

"How delightful to have the wide-eyed wonder of Luci Shaw's poetry combined with the vibrant playfulness of Ned Bustard's art! Kids and grownups alike will love The O in Hope. This book is my new go-to gift for baby showers and little ones' birthdays."
"I think I've been waiting all my life for a children's book by Luci Shaw (There's an O in obviously, after all!)—not only because I long to have the faith of a child, but also because this book introduces one of my favorite poets to my young sons. May this book be a gateway to Luci's body of work and, best of all, to the hope she proclaims."
