This is a children's book I'd like to sit comfortably down on the sofa with, with a child or two on either side of me and spend a happy time reading but also have the fun of looking for items of interest hidden in the colorful, well-illustrated graphics. It would certainly make for a very pleasant afternoon of reading the rhyming poem prayer about Thanksgiving and Autumn, quite possibly sparking questions about the festive season.

This was such a cute book. My kiddos loved this story so much so that they ask for it almost every night. I loved the vibrant colors, the illustrations, the rhymes. It was so sweet. I definitely recommend if you have tiny tots or want to give as a gift to a friend who is about to have a baby.

A picture book to share with your little one on thankfulness. Thankfulness is a learned virtue that changes your life and is for your well being. It is important to teach our children well they are young. This sweet illustrated book uses a seek and find that takes thankfulness further. So many reasons to be thankful and not just one time of the year but all year long.

A special thank you to Thomas Nelson and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review

What a lovely book! The colors and illustrations are absolutely gorgeous. I love the message of faith and thankfulness. The look and find section was such a cool touch that I think kids will love. There aren't many children's books about Thanksgiving that actually have to do with thankfulness and gratitude. It makes me appreciate this one even more.

This is a wonderful activity book. It has beautiful illustrations with a sweet poem on each page and items at the bottom of the page for the child to find. This book would make a wonderful gift!

This is such a cute little book. Perfect for a fall book addition to the shelf. I love the illustrations and that each spread has a seek & find part. Would totally recommend it and will probably give it as a gift.
