Synopsis

Being Thankful by Mercer Mayer

Join Little Critter(R) 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(R) 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. Features & Benefits: * Little Critter(R) brand has humorously portrayed issues kids face for almost 40 years* Faith-inspired message shows kids how to be thankful for the things they have* More than 150 million Little Critter books sold
