REVIEW: I had read an enjoyed another book by this author titled, “Nora’s Ark,” which made me want to read another book by them. This book is illustrated by Archie Preston who captures readers’ attention and brings the story to life in a unique way.
This book is fun to read with little ones as they enjoy the illustrations and message inside. The author talks about all that we have to be thankful for. The pictures show two children role playing different professions as they look at each and see what they might be thankful for.
This author helps children and parents think about all the different people that make up their community and look at family members in a new light. There is much to be thankful for. This book not only creates an opportunity for parents and children to talk about the subject of what to be thankful for but it also helps them look at all the people in their world and community in a different way. t helps the reader see the lives they touch and those they are grateful for.
This is a beautifully illustrated story that is fun to look at and read. I can see this being a family favorite!
Back Cover: Thankful, by bestselling and award-winning children’s author Eileen Spinelli, combines charming rhymes and whimsical illustrations to convey the importance of being thankful for everyday blessings. Like the gardener thankful for every green sprout, and the fireman, for putting the fire out, readers are encouraged to be thankful for the many blessings they find in their lives. Spinelli exhibits her endearing storytelling with this engaging poem, reminding children how blessed and special they are. Meant to be read aloud, this heartwarming picture book will be a treasured keepsake for parents and children alike.
