Thank you Lord for Everything

Love surrounds you, beauty, too.

Notice how God blesses you!

Clap your hands, shout and sing:

Thank you, Lord, for everything.

A comfortable and relaxing rhyme tells the story of God s great blessings in this padded cover board book. P.J. Lyons engaging text and Tim Warnes playful illustrations remind readers how much they have to be thankful for."

My Review:

Thank you, Lord, for everything is a children's board book about the many ways we can be grateful to God throughout our normal days.

First, let's discuss the look of this book. 
---Illustrations: Bright, without being cartoonish or cluttered.
---Words: Big enough with a recognizable font without taking over the page-- I was able to read it upside down and my daughter was able to enjoy the pictures.
---Durability: hard board pages on the inside that are resistant to tearing but easy to turn, and the bound cover feels so smooth to touch. Bonus: the cover is easy to wipe off if something spills on it.

What do I think of the story?
A great message, but a page or two did feel like the rhyme was too forced.

But the big question is: What did River think?

Well, I read this to her the minute I got home and saw it on the mail pile. Th initial reading kept her attention and got some smiles. Always a good sign. Then, because it's built to last, I put it in her crib with her to read. This baby sat there turning pages and doing her own version of reading (which is pointing and saying things in baby talk) for hours. 

For ten dollars, this is a great book to get a 15-month old as they grow into toddler-dom and an awesome gift for any parent you might know.
