Look And Be Grateful
And, these themed books are wonderful to check out from the library, but I really prefer to spend my money on books that we can enjoy year-round, not just for specific holidays. There are many wonderful Thanksgiving-specific books for the Thanksgiving season, but here are some wonderful books on gratitude and being thankful that can be read year-round! Thankful by Eileen Spinelli— Spinelli walks children through a day of creativity and play, reminding the reader what many real people doctors, artists, clowns, queens… can be thankful for… And ends with a very sweet parent-child moment! Giving Thanks: A Native American Good Morning Message by Chief Jake Swamp— A beautiful message of thanks to Mother Earth traditionally said by Mohawk children each morning, wonderful reminders of all that we have to be thankful for in nature every day. Thanks a Million by Nikki Grimes— This collection of poetry in a variety of forms reminds the reader how good it can feel to say thanks, to be told thank you, and to feel thankful for something.
DePaola has been moving toward an ever more simple and radiant aesthetic, as his pictures become increasingly iconic and his colors, as on this beautiful tea-stained paper, become as translucent as glass. Even toddlers will recognize the sun, the ladybug, the flowers, and the oranges, and they will comprehend the mostly one-syllable, hand-lettered words and the open-gestured hands in many skin tones. The repetition of those open hands, the image of a white dove, and the girl and boy on the cover echo the repeated words of gratitude. The blue and gold endpapers are filled with stars. Thank you, Tomie. The uncluttered pages suit the minimal text and make the book accessible to very young children.
