Once again Max Lucado has made a beautiful story for my little one. In addition to being a hard cover sturdy book (to keep it together after many many readings) The story (about the cutest baby caterpillar EVER!) is perfect for little eyes and ears to understand. Set throughout a day in little Hermie’s life he goes through his day thanking god for all his blessings rom the small to the large. Teaching little ones that nothing is too small to be thankful for.
I love any book that teaches about being thankful for life’s blessings. In an age where my daughter is being hit with images of greed and “I want” I am happy to give her books that teach about being thankful and about life’s little blessings.
This book is defiantly more age appropriate for my two year old than the previous hermie book which was in fact a level two reader (not that it mattered to her! Ha-ha)
I love the beautiful pictures and feel it defiantly speaks more to younger children making the lesson easier to understand. The message was spot on about valuing everything in your life and giving God the glory.
I not only will recommend this book I plan on buying it for a couple of my mommy friends who have kids the same age as my daughter. We also will be using this as our Thanksgiving book for November in my mommy and me reading group!
