"This Thanksgiving, set the mood with a story of gratitude." — CHILD
Thank you, Mother Earth.
Thank you, Father Sky.
Thank you for this day.
How can a young boy ever show his gratitude for all the beauty he sees? He will learn from his father, who thanks the earth and the sky, the frogs and the crickets, the hawk and the deer, even the trees that wave their arms in the breeze. Majestic as the most beautiful autumn day and filled with glimpses of favorite woodland animals, GIVING THANKS is truly a gift to readers from nature-lover Jonathan London and master painter Gregory Manchess.
Stuart Waldman is a writer and editor. His "Great Explorers" book "We Asked for Nothing: The Remarkable Journey of Cabeza de Vaca" won a Notable Children's Book Award from the International Reading Association. He lives in New York City.
