In this exuberant Thanksgiving story, a little girl goes on a last-minute errand for her mother. Along the way, she thanks all the familiar things she loves -- her warm boots, the song of the birds, the pretty clouds in the November sky. And when she gets home from her errand, her family thanks her for what she has brought.
David Milgrim's spare, repetitive text and colorful, contemporary illustrations are perfect for beginning readers, and leave no doubt about how much there is in the world to be thankful for!
"After a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, a young girl walks through the snow to the general store to buy whipping cream for the family's pumpkin pie. As she walks, she gives thanks to various animals and objects that she sees. "Thank you, pretty clouds.- Thank you, park.- Thank you, snow people." The colorful digital-oil-pastel pictures are cheerful and incorporate lots of humorous details. The very simple, repetitive text, reminiscent of Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon, will appeal to toddlers. -- School Library Journal
