Details: Product Description "An Attitude of Gratitude: 11 Books That Show Kids What It Means to Be Thankful" (Brightly.com) Once in a while, a perfect union of words and music creates a transcendent song that soars from the heart and speaks to every soul... Grateful is such an anthem—a loving reminder of the gifts available to us when we approach life with gratitude. It is a song that inspires courage, compassion, and hope. In this exquisite picture book and accompanying CD recorded by Art Garfunkel, Anna-Lisa Hakkarainen's radiant paintings bring John Bucchino's words to life. A joyous celebration of the beauty of the seasons, the wonders of nature, and the blessings of faith, here is a gift to be treasured by children and adults of all ages. From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 4-This gentle song is sung by Art Garfunkel on an accompanying CD. It is a celebration of the beauty of the seasons, the wonder of nature, and the meaning of faith. Hakkarainen's soft-focused, luminous illustrations grace each page. Some of the words and ideas are challenging for a young audience; for example, "In a world that can bring pain,/I will still take each chance-/For I believe that whatever the terrain/Our feet can learn to dance." The concept of faith is stressed here, with the reference to believing "in a hand you cannot see." Nevertheless, go ahead, learn the song, and by all means, sing it from the heart. Sandra Kitain, Abrams Hebrew Academy, Yardley, PA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc. Review “As you look around, you can find many things to be thankful for—the sky, the roof over your head, and even your heart and mind. Once you start counting all the good things in life, it’s hard not to feel happy.” (Brightly) “Soft-focused, luminous illustrations grace each page. Go ahead, learn the song, and by all means, sing it from the heart.” (School Library Journal) “Lovely, just lovely.” (Children's Literature) “Warm and fuzzy illustrations.” (The Horn Book) From the Inside Flap CD with an original recording by Art Garfunkel included Once in a while, a perfect union of words and music creates a transcendent song that soars from the heart and speaks to every soul ...
