Picture Books & Resources

Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it.

Ralph Marston

Appreciation is difficult for young children to grasp. It is not just about appreciating a gift but also the beauty around them and the people with whom they share the planet. Children are more likely to notice if people have more than them rather than those who have less. Teaching appreciation can start with a simple thank you to noticing the suffering of others. It is important for children to understand giving without expecting anything in return. This selection of books shows characters appreciating others and the beauty of the world.
