A Very Thankful Prayer {Book Review and Giveaway}


Fall is my favorite season. I love cooler weather, cozy sweaters, and curling up with good books.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own and no other compensation was received.

We recently had the opportunity to read a fall-inspired book, A Very Thankful Prayer by Bonnie Rickner Jensen. It’s part of the A Time to Pray series for children.

A Very Thankful Prayer is an adorable picture book with rhyming text. It’s a sturdy board book so it makes a nice addition to your home library.

The warm, vibrant colors of fall fill the pages and draw children into the sweet story of thankfulness. Every page reminds us of fall blessings like apples, pumpkins, beautiful falling leaves, and the Thanksgiving family meal. Each illustration by Natalia Moore features cute animals that children will love. My daughters especially liked the animal characters in this book. The animals dress and act as people would, so if you have a fan of furry creatures in your family, they’ll love this.

Every Day I Wake Up with a Happy, Thankful Heart

I’m thankful for the seasons,
And I am thankful God made fall.
But for His love that fills the earth,
I’m thankful most of all.

We all know that as adults we often focus on our complaints, rather than our blessings. It’s been proven that having a thankful heart and counting our blessings instead makes for a more joyful, more successful life. This book can help us share that lesson with our children in a very basic way.

Do you keep a book basket or bookshelf filled with seasonal and themed reading for your children? Will you be traveling for Thanksgiving? This book can be the perfect thing to include in your book basket or take on a long car trip.

I definitely recommend adding A Very Thankful Prayer to your fall reading list.
