Book Review–Thank You, God, For Blessing Me by Max Lucado

From the Publisher:

Meet Little Hermie—the cutest baby caterpillar in the garden! Little Hermie’s thankful heart shows toddlers how to be thankful for God’s blessings.

Little Hermie is thankful for everything God has given him. He goes through his day thanking God for his many blessings in this adorable board book with flocking on the cover!

With over 5.5 million brands units sold, the new Little Hermie books open the wonderful world of the Hermie & Friends garden to an entirely new audience.

This sweet little book is perfect for the younger crowd. It’s a very short book that flows well and teaches that we can and should thank God for everything that we have, from things we touch like our food to things about ourselves like our feet. He thanks God for his friends and asks God to help him be thankful as a way to give thanks.

The illustrations were detailed and descriptive. The words were simple enough but not overly simplified. I liked the prayer and the pattern that it had, a good pattern to teach our children: to be thankful for all we have and can do, for all God has made for us, and asking for help to be thankful and obey.

The only thing I wish is that it was longer! I guess I’ll have to wait for another “Little Hermie” book…
