Happy Thanksgiving Day Board Book

About the Book:

Author: Jill Roman Lord
Illustrator: Jody Wheeler

In this touch-and-feel board book, textures and bright artwork bring to life the things for which children can be grateful at Thanksgiving. Tactile experiences throughout the book engage the reader and help children to connect the book to the textures in their actual surroundings. Soft, vibrant watercolor illustrations add warmth and sweetness to the book.

My Review:

Happy Thanksgiving Day is a beautiful board perfect size for toddler's little hands. Throughout the book there is textures added to help bring the story to life such as a furry puppy, fuzzy blanket, smooth pumpkin and more. This book will be a great addition to a child's library and teaches a great lesson that everything is a gift from God and we need to be thankful for it. It really helps bring about the real point to Thanksgiving day. A day that is slowly getting buried by Christmas, shopping and being to busy to step back and reflect on all the blessings in our lives.

I really enjoyed reading this book to my little girl and found the story to perfect length for her and the illustrations are beautiful. I loved how the pages are easy to turn for her little fingers and that she can explore the book through the textures. I know this book will have a home on her bookshelf for years to come.

*I received this book through the publisher for the purpose of this review, my honest opinion was all that was requested. Thank you Ideals Books.
