The children and animals in Todd Parr’s “The Thankful Book’ reveal what they are grateful for. There are humorous statements, “I am thankful for underwear because I like to wear it on my head.” And more meaningful declarations, “I am thankful for hugs because they make me feel good.” The book’s message will inspire children to think about their own reasons to be grateful. As Todd Parr says “there are lots of things to be thankful for. Try to remember some of them every day!”
