I bought copies of this book for both of my grandchildren -- It is well done, and I think just one more teachable moment can be captured as we gather this Thanksgiving to help them realize even more how much they need to thank God for all His gifts.

Counting our blessings is what Dr. Mary Manz Simon's My Basket of Blessings (and many reasons to thank God) is all about. This book is die cut to look like a basket, and each page has die cut images of items in the basket, giving a fun layered look. Adding to the attractive appearance are many sparkly images.
The text is well written rhyme and explains how the items in the basket remind us of God. For example, the juicy apples "will never match the sweetness of God's love for me" and the kitten "reminds me of God's caring and of his gentle touch." There's also a scarecrow to remind that God made us, a pumpkin pie, with it's wafting scent, to remind us God's gifts are everywhere, a squirrel whose "chatter now reminds me to share God's love with you," and a teddy bear, who reminds us bears sleep in deep caves and that God is with us day and night. The book ends:
"My basket overflows now the blessings from above.
These precious gifts around me remind me of God's love!"
What I Like: My 2 year old adores this book. He was instantly attracted to the sparkles and the die cast images in this book. The message is simple and the book keeps his attention over and over again.
What I Dislike: Nothing.
Overall Rating: Excellent.
