A new children's book to start our fall off with thankful hearts!

 I love snuggling up on the couch with my 3 boys and sharing a good story together. It makes my book loving, Mama heart proud that they are always begging for "just one more" book at story time. So, What a better way to celebrate the changing of the season into a cozy, reflective time of year than to acquire some new, quality kids books? I'm so excited to have Thankful by Eileen Spinelli to add to our fall book rotation

What a simple, yet deep child's poem book with delightful illustrations to bring it to life. Thankful reminds children (and their parents!) of some simple, everyday occurrences that bring joy and gratitude. I especially appreciated the way the illustrations brought life to the lines of the poem. The sweet scenes of a family sharing mundane, yet special adventures together made me love this book all the more!

I think this is my favorite line of the poem and illustration. This is an example my boys and I could relate to. We had such a  good and bonding time growing a garden this year. We learned together to work hard and be thankful for the food our garden provided us with!

 I am always working to instill everyday gratitude into my heart and the little hearts I am nurturing in my home as well. I know this book will be a great reminder to us and become a favorite around thanksgiving time.

I recieved this book in exchange for my honest review.
