Thank You, God!

Thank You, God!, written by Kathleen Long Bostrom and illustrated by Elena Kucharik, is another book in the Little Blessings series. This delightful book is filled with what I would call mini prayers. The book is written in rhyme and each verse ends in the word “Amen.” There are nine verses, or mini prayers, in all. The first one goes like this:

God made dark
and God made light.
God made day
and God made night.
Thank you, God,
for all that’s bright!
Thank you, God, Amen.

As in the other books in the series, the illustrations are cute, colorful and child-like, covering each double-paged spread. Complimentary borders line one page of each double-paged spread. For instance, the page that reads: God made creatures – some with paws, has a border with paw prints on it.

What I Like: Everything.

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: Baby to preschool.
