The Perfect Thanksgiving Book for a Child

A Very Thankful Prayer by Bonnie Rickner Jensen

*I received a copy of “A Very Thankful Prayer” to facilitate this review. 

A Very Thankful Prayer is the perfect Thanksgiving book!

If you are looking for a good book for your children or grandchildren for this time of year, check out A Very Thankful Prayer by Bonnie Richner Jensen. I think it is the perfect Thanksgiving book for children. Betty Rickner Jensen is the best selling author behind the Really Woolly® brand. The brand has sold over 1 million books, and the book Really Woolly Bedtime Prayers won the ECPA Gold Award. She has won many other awards for her books as well. I think I love her books because she gets her inspiration from her grandchildren.

A Very Thankful Prayer is perfect for Thanksgiving!

Why is it the perfect Thanksgiving book for children?

The fact that it is a board book will make it easy for the toddlers to turn the 24 pages. The corners are rounded, so we don’t have to worry much about pokes from corners. The foil stamping on the front cover makes it very eye catching and those adorable friendly animals inside will give the kiddos more than enough to look at and ponder over.

A Very Thankful Prayer teaches a child thankfulness!

The book is illustrated by Natalia Moore, and the characters are simply delightful. The animals are all smiling and friendly, wearing scarves, hats and long sleeves. The colors are perfect autumn golds, rusts and greens. Each page is something for which a child should be thankful, even Thanksgiving! I have to admit, my favorite page is about being thankful for farmers and farms, because that is where our food is grown. It helps children realize how much they have to be thankful for. I think it also helps a child learn how to pray a prayer of thanks, and to really be thankful .

I’ll be donating this book to our church nursery. The teacher in that class, Ms. Lenora, loves to read to the toddlers, and this is the perfect book for her to read right now! You can get your copy of A Very Thankful Prayer from Amazon.
