Well, its been a busy few days with off topic posts. So I'm very thankful to get back to book reviews and something else I'm very thankful for is good Christian Children's books. I love books that are based on a scripture passage and tell the story from that perspective. One of our favorite books which is also a book on being thankful is: Thankful Together, by Holly Davis, Illustrated by Valerie Sokolova.
There are sweet illustrations of a mommy squirrel and her little one as they go about their day being thankful for the many blessings the Lord has provided. This is a great read for giving thanks and being prayerful throughout the day. There are so many things each day that we can thank God for and this book focuses on just that, the small blessings of our days. Which are really the best blessings. I love this for a summer read, as it is clearly a wonderful summer day that they are sharing and a Thanksgiving Holiday read. Plus you and your kids can have fun finding a mommy and baby snail on each page. Very cute!
I'd like to also share the scripture verses used in the book:
O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever. Psalms 30:12
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34
