Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

Lubomirski, a fashion photographer and Polish noble, offers a collection of secular prayers of thanks created by his young sons. The inclusions are particular and relatable ("Thank you for when spring comes because sometimes winter is too long"). Graphic art-style illustrations provide a modern aesthetic, with child, adult, and animal figures appearing as shadowlike black-and-white profiles set against eye-catching background colors. Despite the minimalist style, each scene is infused with emotion: a nurse comforts a child in a wheelchair ("Thank you for doctors and hospitals who make us feel better when we get hurt or get sick"), and a girl engages with her white cat: "Thank you for my pets who play with me and also sit with me." Readers will be readily inspired to create their own statements of gratitude. Ages 7-12. (May) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
