Review by Booklist Review

Teaching young children about gratitude might be daunting, especially since that audience often forgets to say thank you. But Clayton's exuberant book shows kids how to look around and be grateful for all the wonderful things in their lives. There didn't use to be boats, the book begins and then follows with a list of things to be thankful for. Along with trees and trains, the breeze and rain, Clayton takes a leap of imagination and is thankful for rope-skipping jungle cats and alligator acrobats. On a more realistic note, the book reminds children to be thankful for places to go / when you want to cry and even bad things that might turn out to be good, for they make us all stronger. Although the examples may go on a tad too long, the deliciously childlike art will sustain readers. Packaged in a compact horizontal format, the art skips across the pages, sometimes silly, sometimes practical (tiny combs, glasses, toasters, teapots) and always appealing. This will make kids and their parents say, Thank you. --Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist
