Genres Childrens, Christinan, Illustrated

Pages 24


From watching the leaves fall to picking pumpkins from the patch, from sharing a Thanksgiving meal with loved ones to learning how to give—there’s so much to be thankful for! Join these adorable animals as they say a prayer of thanks to God, who gives us every good thing.

This is the cutest book and has amazing illustrations! It is a great book to use to teach children about the importance of being thankful & grateful, as well as prayer. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful and include the cutest animals. The story part of the book rhymes and talks about being thankful for simple things, like the colorful fall leaves or a warm hat. This is a great book for teaching children the importance of including all the things we are thankful for in our daily prayers and learning to be grateful for all the things in our life, from the simple things to the big things. I think this board book would be great for individual use at home, but could also work great in a Sunday School or Children in Worship setting, especially with the colorful illustrations and rhyming.


Thank you to the publisher Thomas Nelson for sending me a review copy of this book!
