Todd Parr's kid friendly, bright illustrations make this a great book for a read aloud or lap sit.

In yet another hit from Todd Parr, "The Thankful Book" focuses his playful art and simple sentences on gratitude for the pleasures of a child's everyday life. Each bold, colourful page asserts a reason to be thankful; a confident, yellow-faced child with wild purple hair claims, "I am thankful for my hair because it makes me unique." An elephant exclaims, "I am thankful for my ears because they let me hear words like 'I love you.'"

As usual, Parr includes a hearty dose of silliness: “I am thankful for underwear because I like to wear it on my head.” But, in seriousness, he inspires optimistic gratitude in children, reminding them to give thanks for something every day.

A simple, cute book that you can use to get your kids talking about what they are thankful for. My 18 month old liked the colorful pictures, my older child liked the story, which is basically pages of what the author is thankful for.
