A Thank You Walk
A story about gratitude (Bright Start)
A dog’s tail wagging, a bird’s chirping, a horse’s neighs, a child’s smile—a mother and daughter discover different ways of expressing gratitude as they take the family dog for a walk.
With simple stories and engaging illustrations, the Bright Start series of board books opens conversations about emotions and mental well-being, providing you with the tools and language needed to develop and nurture emotional intelligence in your child. Bright Start responds to recent research showing that emotional development begins in infancy, when children first bond with their caregivers. Early development of emotional intelligence helps children to form healthy and long-lasting relationships, builds the foundations for stable mental health, and lays the groundwork for academic achievement. Give your child a Bright Start for a healthier and happier life.
