Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-Parr explores the idea of gratitude in this picture book: "Every day I try to think about the things I am thankful for." Those "things" include personal characteristics-"I am thankful for my hair because it makes me unique"; music- "because it makes me want to dance"; nature, and so on. Readers are sure to get a laugh out of the notion of being thankful for underwear-"because I like to wear it on my head." Parr's signature illustrations employ bold outlines and bright colors and feature an array of characters both human and animal. The theme is ripe for discussion and lends itself to extension activities in which readers create their own "I'm thankful for" pictures. Pair this book with Mercer Mayer's Just So Thankful (HarperCollins, 2006) or Greg Foley's Thank You Bear (Viking, 2007) for storytimes filled with gratitude.-Stacy Dillon, LREI, New York Cityα(c) Copyright 2011.

Bright and bold as ever are Todd Parr books. Most of my experience with his books so far have been board books, and this is not a board book, but more like a picture book, but the content would work well again as a board book. This is a list about things to be thankful for and would go great with an interactive thankgiving theme, but it is not overly for the fall/autumn/winter/holiday season and could easily be used at anytime of the year. I definitely seeing this one spark some interest in a classroom to encourage kiddos to perhaps draw out their own thankful book.

Now, a retired kindergarten teacher, I first ran into a Todd Parr book by accident. The title: The Dos and Don'ts of Underwear.
It became the most requested book in both sections of kdgn. The kids loved the book and laughed out loud everytime I read it. His style and kid-like drawings were a hit. I now have/own all of his books and just recently bought: The Thankful Book.
It is delightful and ALL can relate to the subject matter. I have given away numerous copies of The Grandma Book and The
Grandpa Book to friends having their first grandchild. Don't hesitate! All of Todd Parr's books are GREAT and a starting point
for discussions and writing a book of your own!

What a great book that reminds us of those little, everyday things to be thankful for. I love all of Todd Parr's books but this one is near the top of my favorites.

Every book on happiness I read raves about the value of being thankful. Once again, Todd Parr takes on a worthy subject and brings to it the simplicity and wisdom of a child. Beautiful illustrations and brilliant observations. I will share this with my thirty-two classes of primary children next week, just in time for Thanksgiving. I'm confident they will love it, too. I'm confident as well that teachers will be lined up to check it out.

We love Todd Parr's other books, so we bought this one with Thanksgiving in mind. It did not disappoint. It is serious. It is a little silly. It is thankful. This is exactly what we were looking for.

This is a lovely book to use with young children (and all of us) to help us reflect upon the joys we encounter each day.
