"...A wonderful resource book. It has Scripture verses put to music, special book tips, and an alphabetical index in the back for easy reference. All of these elements make this book easy and fun to use. How I Praise You! 150 Little Psalms in Song is an economical addition to any home library. It is great for a family to learn Scripture in song and remember it long!" -- Christina Wagner, European Home School Newsletter, June 1999
"An invaluable resource book for all children's choir directors, How I Praise You! is a praiseworthy effort indeed." -- Fearless Reviews, October 2000
"I've always believed that singing scripture is an incredibly easy way to memorize God's Word. This collection of passages from Psalms put to music is a wonderful way to incorporate scripture memorization in your family devotional time...Eight different Bible translations were used. The author selected versions that used simple language patterns that would be easily understood by children and which were also rhythmical in structure and sound. Some of the tunes are original, but many are variations of folk songs, spirituals, rounds, traditional melodies and other melodies with which many will already be familiar." -- Beverly S. Krueger, The Eclectic Homeschool, Mar/Apr 1999
"Offers familiar tunes interwoven with Biblical texts...42 line drawings, 18 fillers...carefully indexed by types of songs and by subject." -- The Midwest Book Review, April 2000
"Repetition is key in many of the songs...For children beginning to learn a musical instrument...Great!"

"Want a way to help your children learn simple verses using music as the peg to hang them on? This nicely done book puts many, many verses from the book of Psalms to simple, original or classic tunes. The arrangements are very simple, and the beginning pianist should be able to play most of them. They are short enough to fit easily into your daily devotionals. Research proves that words put to music form powerful connections in the brain, and songs are much more easily recalled than mere words." -- Wendy Orth, Voice of Hope Newsletter for the Massachusetts Homeschool Organization of Parent Educators, Mar/Apr 1999
This book is user-friendly, even for the novice piano player at home wanting to lead his children in family worship. -- Melissa Moore, The Christian Librarian, issue 3, 2002
