Although Daisy?s parents thank God for things all the time, she doesn?t really understand why until she tries it herself. She starts with everyday life, like the people she meets and the animals she sees, but soon her journey takes Daisy from the material to the intangible as she learns to thank God for the Breath of Life and for Hope. And at the end of her journey, when her father asks her what she is thankful for, there is only one answer she can give: everything!

Nationally renowned spiritual leader August Gold?s powerful prose is perfectly matched by Wendy Anderson Halperin?s fanciful artwork, which beautifully adds dimension and vibrancy to a spiritual voyage that any young reader can appreciate.

I have read this book to both first and second grade catholic catechism classes.
I gave each child a sloppy copy "work sheet" to write down things they would like to thank God for, as I read the book out loud. When we returned to our class I gave them each pretty stationary to write a real thank you letter to God using their sloppy copy for inspiration.
I plan on using this every year I teach (thankful prayers thanksgiving time) - pictures are great and the reading was easy to follow and it held the kids interest!

I bought this book for my 3-year old after we had checked it out from the library. I really like the illustrations and that it focuses on gratitude, without being overly specific to any one religion.

A great book on thankfulness to read with your children and begin the conversation about faith! I use it in my own home and in the church that I serve.

August Gold, spiritual director and co-founder of the Sacred Center New
York, (a church) has written a generic book about thanking God. Daisy, a
ten year old, is looking for reasons to thank God. Each of Daisy's thoughts
is beautifully and colorfully illustrated on two facing pages. She thinks about all the things she loves and thanks God "for each day that I wake up and all the things I get to do". Halperin's appealing watercolor illustrations place Daisy in various environments showing the world and its diverse splendor. There is a small amount of text on each page and no specific religion is mentioned. The non denominational text is appropriate for Jewish children. The realistic illustrations which support and greatly enhance the text do not contain any symbolism that would offend Jewish readers. For ages 3 - 7. Ilka Gordon
