This gentle message of gratitude and connection, enhanced by beautifully simple collage illustrations, makes for a charming gift.
Sun gives us light. Thank you, sun. Clouds bring the rain that makes puddles to splash in. Sheep give us wool for our sweaters and hats. The honey that sweetens our bread comes from bees (thank you, bees). With spare, repetitive text and bright, torn-paper collage artwork, this picture book gives even the youngest readers a subtle sense of how everyday things are related — and inspires an appreciation for life’s simple gifts.
A sweet and simple message about gratitude and connectedness by talented author-illustrator Toni Yuly.
A great tradition families can adopt in their day-to-day lives: “The bus gets us to school. Thank you, bus!” Etc.
Sure to inspire conversations about the various ways in which we’re connected to the world around us.
