Little Book of Thanks by Precious Moments, Jean Fischer from Tommy Nelson an imprint of Thomas Nelson Publishing

My thoughts:  This is one of those special books that get passed down from child to child or generation to generation. Though it will be used a lot by each child or family, it will be carefully used and treasured.

There is such a wealth of thankfulness beautifully expressed in well composed rhymes that lend themselves to memory or recollection. Rhymes that further the love of literature in its beauty. No, these are not classics, but they are worthy of keeping, loving, treasuring.

The illustrations are, as are all Precious Moments drawings, beautifully charming. The sweetness is just so special.

Now about the thanksgiving prayers in this little padded cover board book. They begin with being thankful for the "new day." Then the pages are filled with thanks for others' love, sounds, food, songs, weather, laughter, autumn leaves, etc. I like that things to be thankful are addressed in this delightful book that normally are not mentioned in a young child's book.

I heartily recommend this as a special book to gift to that young child you love. What better time to gift it than as Fall breaks forth and Thanksgiving time nears.

Serve the Lord with joy. Come before him with singing. Psalm 100:2

Thank you, God, for Songs.
Of speckled eggs the birdie sings
And nests among the trees;
The sailor sings of ropes and things
In ships upon the seas.

The children sing in far Japan;
The children sing in Spain;
The organ with the organman
Is singing in the rain.
—Robert Louis Stevenson

Silly Song
I love to sing a silly song.
I love to sing it all day long.
And if you like my song, feel free
To sing the song along with me!
