All the Thanks
As two moms of young children in an ever-revolving digital world, the local (Laguna Beach) author & illustrator know from experience the importance of slowing down and teaching children to be thankful for what they have. Teaching this lesson to children is especially difficult during the holiday season when everyone is bombarded with Christmas lists, gift catalogs, and toy commercials... and then, in a blink of an eye, the "giving season" is over. All the Thanks is a picture book that chronicles the day after Christmas, when true appreciation for all that we have-especially our loved ones-begins.
Our story focuses on the importance of being thankful for what you have and the love from friends and family around you, not just the number of presents you receive. All the Thanks has a unique angle that parents will embrace and children will joyfully receive.
Throughout this book, kids are encouraged to try and spot the red cardinals hidden throughout the pages which represent celebration, hope, health and joy.
