About the Author

Crystal Bowman loves writing books for kids. Her books come in all shapes and sizes and many of them have become best sellers. Whether her stories are written in playful rhythm and rhyme, or short sentences for beginning readers, she tries to make them so enjoyable that kids will want to read them over and over again. 'But the most important part,' she says, 'is to teach children that God loves them and cares about them very much.' SPANISH BIO: A Crystal Bowman le gusta escribir relatos y poemas. Cuando tenia diez anos, su libro favorito era una coleccion de poemas divertidos que todavia conserva. Ademas de escribir relatos, poemas y rimas, Crystal disfruta pasando tiempo con su esposo y sus hijos ya crecidos, dando largas caminatas y comiendo helados. Ellos dividen su tiempo entre Michigan y Florida.

You can find Claudine diving the oceans with Technicolor fish, camel riding in the Sahara, trekking in a jungle populated with wild monkeys, or exploring the African savanna in search of huge elephants. Although adventurous, she sometimes gets scared when coming upon a giant spider or other scary beasts. At that time she heads back to the comfort of her studio, where she draws all the wonderful things she saw and dreams of her next visit to faraway lands.

Format: Board book
Make this Thanksgiving special for your very little ones by sharing this book with them. It is a Thanksgiving prayer from a child's perspective. Written in rhyme, the verses give thanks for things children think about and can appreciate: food, family, and nature. The text is short and simple, with words and images children can understand and relate to.

Here's a sample:

Thank you, God, for birds that sing
and mountains standing tall.
For rivers, trees, and bumblebees -
Lord, you have made them all.

The illustrations in this book are painted with bright, bold colors and project a very child-like quality. Every double-paged spread, except one, contains a single picture. The other two pages contain three pictures that are painted to look like photographs. The book itself is a boardbook, cut roughly into the shape of a cornucopia.

What I Like: Everything. The shape of the book captures your attention since, as mentioned, it is shaped like a cornucopia. The bright illustrations, with a decidedly orange theme, are cute and heart-warming. With only two sentences on each page, youngsters won't need a long attention span to enjoy this book. And the fact that it's a boardbook will make it easier for little ones to turn the pages by themselves. This is a great book to introduce your youngsters to all the things we have to be thankful for.

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: 4 and under.

My 18 month daughter loves this book. It's so cute, that I read it this year at the family's Thanksgiving table in lieu of the usual prayer. It is a prayer itself, and it is clear, sweet, and to the point. Very easy for her to enjoy, and it also helps me to get her to eat every night because she loves how I read the line that thanks God for "potatoes, corn and meat"!! Great book. ALso, as a single mom, I appreciate that there is no direct reference to mom & dad, just a large family around that table that could represent anything you want: grandparents, siblings, or just cousins. In one scene, there is a couple on a swing, and my girl looks at them as her grandparents. I highly recommend this.

Nice board book with pretty art work. We got it for our grandchildren to read outloud to us before meals when the family is over. They get practice saying the prayer, and everyone always compliments the 'good job', so they like that.

Excellent Book. The big size and bright colors makes it very easy for even the smallest babies to be drawn to the colors. We are now reading it again, 2nd year, and toddlers love it. The sturdy board book is easy for their little hands to turn pages, and the art big so they can point to all the images (bug, dog, boy, girls, flower, etc). One of my favorite books for them.

This is a sweet book. I like the sentiment and thought about embracing the reason for Thanksgiving. It looks like the printer had an issue with colors on two pages, but nothing major. It was still usable and darling. I would recommend for faithful families that want a book for smaller children about Thanksgiving.

Excellent! I love how this book starts off with thanking God for their food around the Thanksgiving table, but moves on to thank God for family, creation, the weather, and everything He provides for them each day. Beautiful images and very sturdy board book pages. Very pleased.

My mother-in-law works as a librarian, so she's always giving our son books. For Halloween the year he was about 1.5, she got us "My Happy Pumpkin". He loved it SO much that we got this one for Thanksgiving the same year, and he loves this one too! The illustrations are bright and fun, and the stories are simple and clear. The book rhymes, too, which is a plus for us. I highly recommend these as quality books with a quality message that kids and parents will like.

This prayer book is the entire meaning of the holiday. I think it is a great way to introduce little children to the tradition. I bought two of these books for my great niece and great nephew. Their parents love it and the children did too.
