In her book, Amy Parker followed the advise of the Apostle Paul when he said,
“In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1Thessalonians 5:18
This book is basically a little girl going throughout her day and mentioning ordinary stuff like breakfast, her family, pets, and even bath time. Yet, she is able to be thankful for each event, and at bed time she recognizes that they are all blessings from the Lord. Amy Parker not only incorporated an excellent theme, but the book is written in a simple poetic form making it actually easier for children to recall. Also, the illustrations are darling! Marijan Ramljak does a beautiful job of creating soft (almost impressionist) pictures with calming colors making this an excellent bed time story.
I have a little girl. She’s only 16 days old! I’ve already decided that this is a book I want her to grow up reading. Not just for the cute illustrations and fun poetry, but because the theme is life impacting. Thankfulness does not come natural to humans. It must be learned. Yet a thankful person will have a much happier life than a person who complains regularly.
Even though I got this book for free to review from Thomas Nelson Publishers through their Booksneeze program, these are my own opinions
