God Gave Us Thankful Hearts- By Lisa Tawn Bergren; Illustrated By David Hohn

About The Book:

Adventurous Lil Pup is bummed that hibernating season will soon be coming to the Great North Woods. Why should so many of his friends have to go in for the winter and leave Lil Pup without pals? Mama reminds her little wolf that not all animals hibernate, and how he can be grateful for the beautiful autumn season – for jumping in leaf piles, eating apple treats, and celebrating the wonders of fall with his forest friends. And she points out…
“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.”
As Mama and Lil Pup explore, she reminds him that God is the giver of all good things. Lil Pup learns that even when something fun comes to an end; his heart can be thankful when he sets his mind on the best things in his life.
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.

My Review:

I am a big Lisa Tawn Bergren fan. I first discovered her when I was expecting my first child, and my mother-in-law gave me God Gave Us You. Lisa has written many precious children’s books. You are definitely missing out if you haven’t read any of her books!

God Gave Us Thankful Hearts continues the list of amazing children’s books, this time with a wolf family instead of the polar bear family. This book has a wonderful message packed in its pages. It teaches a valuable lesson that in the negative, find the positive and good and always be thankful! I absolutely love what this teaches our children! The text is simple, and easy to understand and follow. My small kids love it! The illustrations are stunning, and bright. Fall is just around the corner, and these illustrations have me eagerly anticipating the seasons arrival! I am so thankful to have the privilege to add this book to our collection!

I rate this book a 5/5 stars. I highly recommend you all check it out! You can purchase online here, or at your favorite book store!
