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.

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!
Always an emotional and meaningful experience for me when I read these books, they hit a lot of sore spots, but they get through to me each and every time!
