In a series of poetic sentences, a young boy (biracial Mexican/Caucasian) tells about some of the everyday things for which he is thankful.
There are so many things to be thankful for.
For one young boy, it's
splashing ocean waves,
a best friend,
Dad's thick chocolate syrup,
and much more.
Straight from the heart of a child flows this lighthearted bilingual celebration of family, friendship, and fun. Come share the joy, and think about all the things for which you can say, Gracias Thanks
