Seven short declarative sentences about nature (e.g., “The sun gives us light.”) are followed by a simple thank you in a lovely tribute to the Earth and to gratitude. The young child pictured in the multimedia collage illustrations makes observations and offers thanks to the sun, bees, sheep, clouds, trees, dirt, and Earth. Yuly skillfully takes a large and important concept and makes it completely accessible to young children, inspiring them to use the same pattern to express what they are thankful for. (Ages 2-5)
