Summary: “Open your eyes, and look. Open your eyes, and see. And say thank you, for today is today. Be grateful, for everything you see. Have gratitude. Today is today, and it is a gift. So, be grateful.” That is the entire text of this little book, illustrated in Tomie dePaola’s distinctive style. A young boy wakes up, looks at the world around him, and is shown on his knees praying with his little sister on the final page. All ages.
Pros: May Thanksgiving find you as full of gratitude as this book.
Cons: Gratitude and turkey can be a dangerous combination. Go easy.
