A Heartfelt Thank You

Give Thanks to the Lord: Celebrating Psalm 92 by Karma Wilson is a pretty fun Thanksgiving book, with a faith-based focus. It celebrates Psalm 92: "It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High." and is kid-focused too, showing little folk doing all the things they do on Thanksgiving day with family. Jumping in leaves, eating at the kids' table (with olives on all their fingers), sharing pie with Grampa and stories too, are among just a few examples.

Amy June Bates' illustrations are perfect and sweet, and the faces of the children are so expressive and real.

An excellent book with the added bonus of giving Thanks where it ought to be given: "We all sit down, we all join hands. Our heads are bowed as we say grace. We give our highest praise to God and feel him in this place." Amen. Happy Thanksgiving!!
