Review: Thank you, God for blessing me by Max Lucado, Illustrated by Frank Endersby

Thank you, God for blessing me by Max Lucado, Illustrated by Frank Endersby

"Meet Little Hermie—the cutest baby caterpillar in the garden! Little Hermie’s thankful heart shows toddlers how to be thankful for God’s blessings.
Little Hermie is thankful for everything God has given him. He goes through his day thanking God for his many blessings in this adorable board book with flocking on the cover!"

My Review:

This is an adorable christian book for toddlers (my guess is one to four, but I only have a three year old), with an important message--thanking God should be part of everything we do.

I liked how it gave examples of what we can and should thank Him for: food, eyes to see, friends and family, and even things that are hard for children like being kind and obeying. The story is a great introduction to Hermie, who I have seen books and movies for. The rhymes make it easier for me to read, and I think more pleasurable for my little girl to hear.

The illustrations are cute and detailed, with carry over from one picture to another. There are ladybugs and grapes in the first, and then they are on each consecutive page. I like the calm coloring for the majority of the page, and then how it’s contrasted with nice bright colors for the flowers or grapes.

My daughter asked to hear it again, and it’s a book that I wouldn’t mind reading two or three times in a day, which I can’t say for all of the books in the house or that we get from the library.

I think the length is about perfect, although I wouldn’t mind another couple of pages.

I received this book for free from BookSneeze, but it did not affect my opinion or review.
