Lovely book with great pictures and great words! ( )

Very simple but great book about all the different things there are to be thankful for. It's not only good for Thanksgiving but should be shared throughout the whole year. It reminds you of even the simplest things that we often take for granted. ( )

This book focuses on the many things you should be thankful for. In this heart felt book you will learn the true key to happiness.

Every book on happiness I read raves about the value of being thankful. Once again, Todd Parr takes on a worthy subject and brings to it the simplicity and wisdom of a child. Beautiful illustrations and brilliant observations. I will share this with my thirty-two classes of primary children next week, just in time for Thanksgiving. I'm confident they will love it, too. I'm confident as well that teachers will be lined up to check it out. ( )
