I really wanted to love this book but every time I read it, it drives me crazy that it doesn't tell what the represented countries are! I always try to tell my little ones, "Oh these children are in..." but then I'm not exactly sure! "somewhere in Africa?" Drives me just bonkers. Or if they ask me, then what am I supposed to say? So if you're like me and value the educational aspect of these types of books, and don't have all of your world geography completely down pat, then to read this book with knowledge you will need to be sitting next to Google. One reviewer said their child loves to guess what the country is. But I'd rather they be able to actually know the truth of what they are looking at and be learning, not just guessing and wondering.

Having said all of that, this book draws children in and towards the end of the book, my daughter very sincerely looked up at me and said, "I said thank you to God once too, mommy." So that was sweet and I could tell that the MESSAGE of the book (gratefulness to God) had definitely come through and ministered to her little heart. There is value in simply hearing, "Thank you, God" over and over.

The bottom line is that if you are looking for a book to increase their awareness of gratefulness to God, this might be okay. But this book is not educational material and prompts a lot of questions it does not answer about children of the world and their respective countries.

Eta: I do highly recommend "Children Just Like Me" from DK Publishing if you are looking for an educational book about children around the world! (which this book is not trying to be, of course, but if you are!)

Focusing on thankfulness while introducing children to our similarities and wonderful differences is what Thank You, God from Kids Around the World by Allia Zobel Nolan is all about.

Nolan is well known for her well written rhyming children's books, and this, her newest title, is no less well executed. Sometimes she has children thanking God for regionally specific things (like Lady Liberty, Chinese dragon kites, Indian curry, or Egyptian camels) and occasionally for universals (like parents and God's love).

The illustrations by Miki Sakamoto compliment the text beautifully, with bright colors and cute kid faces. Many pages also feature a flap kids can lift.

What I Like: My 6 year old was fascinated to see images of children in other lands. (Her favorite? The illustration of a Chinese family.) She had fun guessing which countries the children were from, and her nearly 3 year old brother loved learning about them, too. The images are colorful, the text is well written, the theme is important. What's not to like?

What I Dislike: Nothing, really, although it would have been nice to have some written indication of which countries were being featured, perhaps with a few bits of factual information to help parents teach their children more about children around the world.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

I'm always on the lookout for top quality children's books, and Allia Zobel Nolan is one of my all-time favorite authors. Her newest book released from Zonderkidz, and is a fun way to spend time reading with your child.

"Thank You God, from Kids Around the World" is both multi-cultural and faith-based. The book is interactive, with flaps your child can lift to find 'surprises' on every page.

Each page shares a thank you message from the children of that particular region to God for what He's given them. The artwork, from illustrator Miki Sakamoto, is colorful and engaging.

Your child can learn about different countries and cultures while learning that God is good to all of us, and gives us good gifts to enjoy. And we all can learn to have more appreciation for what we have!

Plus, the price is excellent! Stock up on copies for gifts this holiday season, and use the book as a springboard for lessons on thankfulness during November. You'll find a multitude of uses and reasons to read this book often.

My thanks to Allia and my friends at Zonderkidz for my copy. I'm giving "Thank You God, from Kids Around the World" four out of five bookmarks, with a globe as a charm.

Although Thank You God is geared for the little ones (Ages 3-6) it is pure enjoyment for the whole family. An interactive book that as you read it out loud, the younger kids can lift the flap and discover the the rest of the message which is quite simple really. God loves us all despite our differences or geographic location. For my test group, the three year olds were quite enchanted with the colors and illustrations.

The older ones at the end page of the book were pointing to the group of kids on the page and telling the adults what countries the kids were from.

It was great fun, a fast read and opened up a conversation about what the kids were grateful for. Leesa, one of the four year olds- she pointed out that she was grateful for the book Thank You God because it reminded her that "Jesus Loves her too!"
