What it’s about: A picture book about being thankful.
What made me pick it up: I saw it sitting on my coworker’s desk and took a few minutes to page through.
My favorite things: I liked the repetition of thanking various elements — clouds for rain, sun, earth. It has very vivid illustrations, which reminded me a little of Eric Carle, and a simple message which I enjoyed.
Who it’s great for: Little ones who need a lesson in gratitude.
