In line with our November social media focus this month of “The Core of Thankfulness”, we will be reviewing two children’s books on gratitude, “Thank You, God, for Blessing Me” by Max Lucado and “I’m Thankful Each Day” by P.K. Hallinan. These book reviews are written by one of our counselors, Christine Baker. She works out of our Birmingham and Tuscaloosa offices. If you would like to read more about her, click here.
“Thank You, God, For Blessing Me” by Max Lucado:
This ten-page book tells the story of a day in the life of Little Hermie, who is a thankful green caterpillar. This book is very well-illustrated with lots of color for your children to enjoy. Little Hermie visits all of his friends and goes through all of his daily activities and thanks God for each one. This is a great book to teach your children about how we can be grateful to the Lord for everything, big and small. I would recommend this book for children ages 2 and up.

“I’m Thankful Each Day!” by P.K. Hallinan:
This twenty-six page book rhymes its way through the day of a young boy. The book is well written with some words understandable to children of all ages, and some more challenging words. The book is very well illustrated with beautiful bright colors. It is a great resource to use to teach children to be thankful for things outside of just material possessions. It is not an obviously Christian book like “Thank You, God, For Blessing Me”, however you could easily use this book as part of a family Bible study to help teach your children about gratitude. I would recommend this book for ages 5 and up. If you would like to purchase this book, click here.
