Thank You, Lord, For Everything is a great little book that is centered on thankfulness - I think it is really a great book to read with your little ones.
The illustrations in Thank You, Lord, For Everything are really cute. They feature the little bear on the cover and follow him through the day.
All in all, Thank You, Lord, For Everything is a great book and a wonderful choice for your family's bookshelf.

“Thank You, Lord, for Everything” is a children’s picture book written by PJ Lyons. The precious illustrations were done by Tim Warnes. This book is a board book, so it is fine for little hands. I love how it has rhythm and rhyme, which little ones seem to really like. It has bright pretty pictures to catch a child’s attention. And, it names different things in a child’s life to help them learn to give thanks. Our society wants to teach an attitude of “It’s owed to me.” But, this book teaches an attitude of gratitude.
I’d definitely recommend this book to young children and those reading to and teaching them.

P. J. Lyons has once again put together a wonderful rhyming poem that focuses on being thankful for the things that we encounter during our average days. Tim Warnes said on his website that he challenged himself to make the sweet little bear "the cutest, most endearing, softest little bear he could." I say he met the challenge and exceeded it. Designed with toddlers in mind this padded board book will be able to withstand the multiple readings from those sweet little hands.
In case you are just needing an excuse to buy the book here's a little quote from the author about the book.
"I wrote this, along with some other stories, for a friend who wished the Sandra Boyton books her toddler loved had some take away value. (That toddler is now going into tenth grade.) These books (God Is Watching Over You comes out March 2016) contain all the sounds, or phonemes, in English. It's important for children to hear all these sounds to help them learn to speak and read. I think of them as Baby Einstein gets religion." (www.pjlyons.com)
I love that! Now you can buy the book without any guilt because you are just helping your little one learn to speak and read. But seriously, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and this adorable little book would be a marvelous addition to your little one's personal library.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review. (Posted on 11/9/2015)

A happy book that teaches our children who to thank for the world around them. A perfect gift for children right before the holidays. Geared towards children in the age range of 4-8 years old. Can be read by an adult to very young children and the perfect size for young hands. A precious book about thankfulness!
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. (Posted on 11/3/2015)

Thank you, Lord, for Everything is a great book to help do that! It's a board book so it's designed for the younger crowd. I read it with my 21 month old today and he absolutely loved it. It instantly became one of those books that you have to read to them over and over again. What better message to drill in his head, over and over!
I like books that rhyme for the little ones. It makes it more sing-songy which Jax tends to listen and pay attention to more. Since he's just a toddler, long books and uninteresting words don't go far with him. The repetition also helps as each page ended up with the same statement "thank you Lord for everything!" He's just putting together words and phrases now but I'm hoping this is one of the first sentences he remembers and says.
The thing I like about this message is that it's a great reminder to be grateful for even the little things. Sometimes we forget to be thankful for food and shelter and things that we take for granted when there are those that do without. The little things to us are the big things to others and I think it's a great message to give our children as we approach the holiday season.
The pictures are adorable and I think that's part of what kept Jax in tune. The first time through I pointed out some things I thought he'd like and remember since he's also learning to talk. I pointed out a ball, rabbit, bees and flowers. The next time through he pointed at them and said their names. Early reading is also a great tool for learning to talk and it's such a joy to share this with him.
Thank you, Lord, for Everything became an instant favorite with my toddler and is a great book to read for the holidays and a message to reinforce all year!
I received a copy of this book for review. All opinions are my own. (Posted on 10/15/2015)
