Being Thankful Board book – July 21 2014
Enhance your purchase
Join Little Critter® as he learns why it’s important to be thankful for what he has―not to be upset about what he doesn't.
Since 1975, Mercer Mayer has been writing and illustrating stories about Little Critter® and the antics he stumbles into while growing up. Tommy Nelson is thrilled to bring this beloved brand to the Christian market with the Inspired Kids line of faith-based books featuring Little Critter.
In Being Thankful, Little Critter isn't gettinganything he wants. Gator gets cool brand-new sneakers, while Little Critter is stuck with his boring blue ones. Tiger’s dad has a boat―but not Little Critter’s dad. And even at the ice cream shop, Little Critter can’t enjoy his chocolate ice cream cone because he would rather have a huge ice cream sundae instead. But on a trip to the farm, Grandma shows Little Critter why thankfulness is so important and helps make any situation seem so much happier.
Based on Psalm 107:1, this book will show children what gratitude is and why we should be thankful for all of the blessings God has given us.

A word of caution here. If you do not like your child reading about being nasty to a sibling this might not be the book for you. When Little Sister bumps into Little Critter, causing him to drop his ice cream cone he says "I wish I had a big brother instead of a dumb little sister like you." Needless to say, Little Critter's mom reprimands him. The next day Little Critter is out at Grandma's farm. How did this trip help change Little Critter's attitude?
This book has a tremendous lesson for all of us, not just the kids. FANTASTIC story to share with your family. Thanks, Liz
Other than that, I liked the book, but I will be editing that word from now on, though my daughter already knows it's there.
Finally, Little Critter visits the farm and sees how happy and content the animals are with the food they have. So he goes home with a new perspective and even teaches his sister to be appreciative as well. That's all :) Gotta love Little Critter.
