This is a GREAT book because the words flow nicely and the message is really great not only for children but for adults, as well. The illustrations are really cute, too. I highly recommend any book by P.K. Hallinan.

Format: Board book
If you are tired of materialism and want to help instill a sense of gratitude and thanksgiving in your little one, "Let's Be Thankful" by P. K. Hallinan is a book you should consider purchasing. Charming, colorful drawings enhance the rhymed text which extolls simple, nonmaterial things and people who are important in a child's life. The sun, ice cream, puppies, family, teachers, and fireflies are some of the things for which the children in the book express appreciation.

Although this book was published in 2004, there appear to be only two persons of color - a soldier and a little boy smiling at the book's family - depicted on the pages of the book. While I would understand this if the book had been written in an earlier time, I question why it was not more inclusive and why the publisher did not catch the omission. Further, while the vein of the text is expresses thanksgiving, the book does not thank God for creating the wonders expounded upon. Although God's presence could be inferred from the text, I feel it would have been better to address it directly. Since I believe Guidepost Company publishes books and magazines based on faith and inspirational stories, I was somewhat surprised that a direct reference to God was left out of the mix. And yes, this book would be an excellent one for Sunday School as the teacher could bring the aspect of God into the classroom through question and answer sessions. However, it still seems, to me, the concept is one that should have been included within the book.

I bought this book on a whim at one of the off-price stores, only to discover it was included in Amazon's 4 for 3 special and that Amazon's price was better. There are a number of books in this series from Candy Cane Press, a Guideposts Company, and I will be purchasing more - from Amazon - for my grandson. I recommend that others take a look at P. K. Hallinan's books for little ones they love.

This is my new favorite book to read to my toddler! It is a wonderful, positive message, with lovely illustrations, and lovely verse. I highly recommend this book to any parent who wants to instill a grateful heart into their child, and to remind themselves daily to be thankful for all of life's blessings!

My children love this book and the How Do I Love You? book by the same author. I use this book each year in my Kindergarten Sunday School class because it helps children think of things they are thankful for that perhaps they hadn't considered before. A never fail hit.

More About the Author

P.K. Hallinan began writing children's books 40 years ago when his wife asked him to make a book for their two young sons as a Christmas gift. He did, and the feedback he got from friends and neighbors inspired him to write more books. Since then, P.K. has written and illustrated nearly 100 children's books and has sold more than 9,000,000 copies worldwide.

P.K. was born in Los Angeles in 1944 and spent his youth primarily in Bethesda, Maryland and in the San Fernando Valley. Although P.K. never studied art, his disappointment with the work of the artist assigned to illustrate his first book motivated him to learn to draw. He has been illustrating his own books ever since.

"If I did any one thing right," says P.K., "I decided very early on to write books that help children and parents alike have better and happier lives. That decision has kept many of my books in-print for more than 25 years, because the values I teach are timeless."

His newest book, "A LIFE THAT MATTERS: Five Steps to Making a Difference", is his first book for adults. In it he describes five simple ways to add significance to virtually any career.

P.K. is also an ordained minister. He lives with his wife, Jeanne, and his boxer, Betty, in the mountains above Ashland and also at the beach, in Brookings, Oregon.
