Thank You, God, for Blessing Me is a charming and delightful book written for pre-school age children. The book is classified as a "Read 2 Me" book, intended to be read aloud to children who are not yet able to read. This is a board book with heavy cardboard pages that cannot be ripped or torn and is appropriate for small children who will want to reach out and touch the colorful illustrations in this book.
The book offers nine pages of sweet and playful rhyming text. It offers a lesson on gratitude and gives parents and other caregivers an opportunity for a teachable moment with their children, encouraging them to be thankful for every-day things. The book has beautiful color graphics that are fun to look at and make the story come to life. Parents and children alike will want to linger on the pages of this text as the illustrations are truly fantastic.
This book is part of the "Little Hermie" series and makes some references to characters who appear in other books in the series. This could create a small problem for children who are not familiar with the other books and characters. However, this would probably be a minor issue while reading, and possibly looked over by most younger children.
Thank You, God, for Blessing Me is a wonderful addition to the collection of Christian books for pre-school age children and gives parents the opportunity to enjoy reading to and sharing their faith with their young children.
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for this review. I was not required to post a positive review.
