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
flying ladybugs,
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 "
