Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A traditional blessing often said by children at mealtime ("Thank you for the food we eat./ Thank your for the world so sweet") makes up the heart of the cozy padded board book Thank You Prayer, adapted by Josephine Page, illus. by Jayne Church, featuring a cuddly bear and his friendly-faced animal pals as they take time to appreciate simple everyday gifts. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This adaptation of a familiar prayer for young children has a padded cover and thin cardboard pages. The bear on the cover continues as the largest animal and main character. The page with "Thank you for my family," shows the bear, a pig, a dog, a cat, and a mouse. The imaginative picture with "Thank you for the world so sweet," shows a world centered on Africa with the animals running over the top rim. One page has the animals tucked in while the bear kneels beside the bed. Each square of their quilt displays a different design. The colorful endpapers are dotted with little birds and flowers. Youngsters can learn to recite the prayer while looking at the details of the colorful, computer-generated pictures of this child-friendly book. 2005, Cartwheel Books/Scholastic, Ages 2 to 6.

Thank You Prayer is the perfect book to remind us of what Thanksgiving is all about. It is a simple prayer thanking God for all the beautiful things He gives us each day. It is sweet and heartwarming, with adorable illustrations. This is a great book to read with children around the holidays, or any day for that matter. It is a nice reminder that God is in our lives and continually blesses us.

Simple, short, and sweet. Illustrations are bright and colorful, and prayers rhyme. I love this book! Great book about giving thanks for everything. I know my son will learn this prayer fast. It helps that the pages are short and sweet and the illustrations depict things we can talk about.
