Praise For…


"This is a great book for children to begin thinking about easy ways to incorporate gratitude into their daily routines. I love that the examples gave leading questions to help think a little deeper about how kids (and adults!) can be practicing gratitude every day." —Becky Thomas, special educator

"As a speech language pathologist and mom, I am grateful for this book! Such a simple and fun way to explain the complex idea of why we should all be thankful and the small ways we can show it. The concrete examples helped even my three-year-old become better at saying thanks. Yesterday, he thanked the playground! A wonderful book with great illustrations and relatable examples." —Jennifer Volpe, speech language pathologist

"Children love to see themselves as having superpowers. This book encourages them to imagine how gratitude and care for others can make them powerful and effective in the world. It's a positive message presented clearly and simply in scenarios kids can identify with. I highly recommend this book." —Judy Schneier, LCSW, psychotherapist
