Now and then, I think the world needs a little reminder to be grateful. So, how nice that there is a holiday to do just that. Here is a picture book that, through prayers, poems, and blessings, also reminds us to be grateful for all we have:
This lovely collection of prayers, poems, and blessings is a soothing reminder of things for which to be thankful. Divided into sections like Morning, Love and Kindness, Family and Friends, Nightfall, and more, the book is suited to read any time of day and any time of year, but the lulling rhythms of most of the poems are particularly suited for bedtime. Helen Cann’s watercolor, collage, and colored pencil illustrations depict the natural world around us. Her use of soft lines and muted color scheme are perfectly paired with the poems selected by June Cotner and Nancy Tupper-Ling. If you’re looking for a morning, daytime, or bedtime read with uplifting poems and prayers, this is a great one!
