Grace sets off to spread gratitude to everyone in her community and receives a delightful response!
Grace writes charming and humorous letters to thank relatives and friends for her birthday presents. But why stop there? To who else can she give thanks? Grace thanks Mr. Jones for teaching her to read, her dog for his waggy tail, and the sky for being so blue.
Soon showers of thoughtful letters and notes are circulating through the town. When Grace returns home, a gatefold reveals that the inside is decorated from floor to ceiling with notes, cards, and letters responding to her thoughtful missives.
Favorite storytime author and illustrator, Jane Cabrera’s vivid and textured acrylic paintings are filled with joyful cuteness and warmth. Patterns from the inside of envelopes smartly add to the epistolary theme. This delightful celebration of mindful thankfulness and community togetherness is perfect for curling up in a cozy spot and sharing one-on-one.
Grace is excellent at expressing her gratitude—not only does she write thank you notes, but she also does it promptly! What are some things you are grateful for (even if it wasn’t your birthday yesterday)? How can you express your gratitude to others?
Does Grace get everything she asked for for her birthday just like she imagined it? How can you react when things don’t go quite your way?
Grace’s gratitude starts a positive chain reaction. Can you start a positive chain reaction of your own?
