Reviews

Living Church -Invites us to linger on the many good things we have received and to receive them with delighted, thankful hearts.-Publishers Weekly (STARRED review) -An inspiring and accessible introduction to the practice of prayer.-Kirkus Reviews -Simplicity made plain and lovely carries a nondenominational prayer of gratitude for all that is.-Booklist (STARRED review) -Family, friends, shared meals, and shared stories are just a few of the everyday familiars with which readers will identify. But some of the spreads artistically recreate the natural world, and these pictures, rendered in digital paints and photographic textures, make an especially strong impression and capture the wonder of the universe. . . . Both poetic and child-friendly.-Christian Library Journal -Thank You, God has a peaceful rhythm and a timeless truth. . . . [It] would make a memorable gift for a young child, likely to be shared by the whole family and revisited often.-Catholic Library World -Thank you, God provides words perfect for children to use as they learn to converse with God. The text, suitable as a bedtime prayer, highlights the myriad riches of the world for which we can all be thankful. . . . Teachers and librarians will find a place for this book during storytimes as they teach young children about God's role in their lives.-Congregational Libraries Today -Thank You, God will be a welcome addition to any congregational library that serves children.-School Library Today -Elegant and enjoyable. . . . This book would be a great tool for devotions in the home, classroom, or church.
