Thank You, God, for Blessing Me is a wonderful short read about seeing the blessings around us. With beautiful illustrations and kid friendly language, well known author Max Lucado brings the message of Thankfulness to life. Little Hermie finds himself being thankful for so many things, from the bed to sleep in to the relationships he has around him. The pages are durable and the message is clearly written for readers ages 2-5 years.
We really enjoyed this book. My kids love Little Hermie with his button nose. Come on... what's not to love about this character? I love the fact that he's thankful without being preachy. Lucado also introduces that fact that obedience and kindness are ways of showing thankfulness to God as well. The story gives children a variety of ways to look for blessings in their every day lives and God is clearly woven into the story in a very relatable way. This little story will bring a smile to your face as your children begin to recognize how truly blessed they are. It would make a wonderful gift for the preschooler in your life.
