God Gave us Thankful Hearts by Lisa Tawn Bergren with art by David Holm is a wonderful children’s book. The story follows “Lil Pup” who is sad that winter is coming when it will be time to hibernate. After he complains to his parents about winter they show him all the things to be thankful for at all times of the year.
This is such a wonderful book for our children to read. This world needs more thankful people and that starts at a very young age. Even as an adult reading this it reminded me of all the little things that we can and should be thankful for everyday. No matter what our lives are like, there is always something to be thankful for, sometimes we just need to look a little harder. Any child would love to “read” this book at bedtime, and with this wonderful message it is great for little minds.
The drawings in this book are phenomenal. I loved to look at the pictures and I know any child would too. The pictures are happy and have enough detail to keep anyone intrigued.
This book was very well written for a child. It is easy to follow and understand as well as being easy to read out loud, a wonderful asset for any parent reading every night.
I would recommend this book to any parent who reads to their child and wants something positive that has a great message for their child. This will be a book your child will want to read over and over.
“I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.”
