“I think the trick to having a thankful heart is thinking about the things that make us happy, rather than the things that don’t.”

This inviting addition to the best-selling God Gave Us series, with nearly 2.5 million books sold, helps little ones to understand how giving thanks warms hearts and brings joy.
