This story follows a child and her surroundings. Making sure to not each thing that she is thankful for throughout. I would recommend this story to children 3-5.

This is a story of a girl who is being thankful for the natural things around her. This is very good book to teach how to express gratitude to simple things that we have in everyday life.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689854102, Hardcover)

Perhaps you'd like to know a secret, one of the happiest ones of all.

You will surely find it for yourself one day.

You'll discover it all on your own, maybe when you least expect it. If you've not yet discovered the secret of saying thanks, it's waiting for you. The secret can be found in the sunrise that offers promises full for the day ahead, or in the gentle shade of a tree sheltering you from the hot rays of the sun, or on the rock that offers rest from a long walk.

In the inspirational text that made him a bestselling, internationally acclaimed author, Douglas Wood offers a spiritual homage to nature and the world. Greg Shed's stunning portraits of the natural world tenderly portray all of the many ways in which we can say thanks for the wonders we sometimes take granted in life.
