God Gave Us Thankful Hearts (Review)
This review is for the book "God Gave Us Thankful Hearts" by Lisa Tawn Bergren. I will be honest. We have almost every book in this series that Lisa Tawn Bergren has created ("God Gave Us...") and our family absolutely loves them. I am never disappointed with the books.
In this book, Little Pup, a fox, is bummed because he knows that winter is coming and that means hibernation time is close. His mother encourages him to think of things to be thankful for in every season. When Little Pup complains about poison ivy, his mother tells him to be thankful he knows how to avoid it. She teaches him to focus on the things that make us happy, rather than the things that don't.
This is the cutest book as Little Pup's mother and father take him through the things that seem to be disappointments and help him turn them into blessings. It's really a great lesson for all of us! I highly recommend not just this book, but any of the books in this series. They are fun to read and they teach great lessons in a really simple way.
Thank you to Waterbrook Multonah for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
