A young boy is giving thanks to the Lord for all his blessings on Thanksgiving day. The illustrations are warm and full of autumn colors-oranges, reds, and yellows

A young boy is giving thanks to the Lord for all his blessings on Thanksgiving day. The illustrations are warm and full of autumn colors-oranges, reds, and yellows. May 10, 2015 Samantha rated it really liked it.

It is good to give thanks to the Lord! This is a nice enough book, but it's not a must-have.

Karma Wilson's first poem was published at the tender age of six. The poem was ironically titled, "I Don't Wanna Write a Poem!" Growing up, she had no desire to write. This story frames Psalm 92 around a family's Thanksgiving celebration as seen through the eyes of a little boy. The illustrations are attractive watercolors that contribute to the homey, welcoming feel of the Thanksgiving celebration. It is good to give thanks to the Lord! This is a nice enough book, but it's not a must-have.

Book of Psalms, псалом 92 Psalms, пс 9. lt; It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night, Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound. For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands. O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep. A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.

by Karma Wilson & illustrated by Amy June Bates. In her double-page spread illustrations, Bates creates a winning personality for the narrator of the story, an unnamed little boy with a big smile. He greets his arriving relatives, plays outside in the leaves with his cousins and enjoys a traditional turkey dinner with pumpkin pie. The boy is followed everywhere by his friendly golden retriever, whose coloring blends in with the fall palette, and Bates adds comical touches such as a close-up view of the child during the dinner with black olives stuck on each finger.

This story frames Psalm 92 around a family's Thanksgiving celebration as seen through the eyes of a little boy. The illustrations are attractive watercolors that contribute to the homey, welcoming feel of the Thanksgiving celebration. You see him thankful for times shared with family and for all of the wonderful food. The text is done in a rhyming fashion. An example:

The day is lovely, cool, and bright.
Our house is filled with noisy cheer.
A perfect day for giving thanks
as we all gather here.

It is good to give thanks to the Lord!

This is a nice enough book, but it's not a must-have. We had previously read the author's book I Will Rejoice which is charming, oh-so-enjoyable, and read very frequently in our household, especially to my three girls, ages 6, 4, and 2. This book, however, is not read nearly as often. It just doesn't have the same rhythm and flow as you read it. It's a nice enough book for a Christian look at Thanksgiving for the preschoooler, just not quite as great as I expected.

At first I was a little disappointed that this book doesn't have the same rhythm as the Bear stories, which I like so much. However I guess that meter is appropiately unique to that series. This is the first book of Wilson's Psalms series that I have purchased, but the others continue to be on my wish list.

First page:
It is good to give thanks to the Lord!

Friends and family here at last.
Hugs and kisses all around
Everybody says "Hello!"
Laughter makes a merry sound.

From the middle of the book:
The house fills up with tempting smells--
turkey, stuffing, yummy pies!
And just when we can't wait much more,
"It's ready!" Mama cries. . . .

The table makes a lovely sight./ The food is good, it tastes just right./I savor every single bite./ I feel so full of love tonight.

Last verse:
I'm so tired I have to yawn/as we all say our sad goodbyes./I climb in bed, whisper prayers,/get a good-night kiss and shut my eyes.// And it's good, so good to give thanks to the Lord.

"It is good to give thanks to the Lord!" is the refrain repeated often in the text, and the picture of the boy with black olives stuck on all his fingers (mentioned in the editorial reviews) is a favorite of mine too. This book is a welcome addition to our Thanksgiving collection - not an easy holiday to find meaningful selections for.

  • Nawenadet
Another wonderful book by this author. I purchase a lot of her work because she seems to be able to get the message across to children. The art work is so beautiful. My grandchildren love her books.
  • Virtual
Beautiful book. It makes me tear up every time I read it to my children.
We love this book; bought it to have in our collection for reading with the kids during fall/Thanksgiving time of year. It is fun reading, with good respect to family gathering, sharing love, food, cherished times with our families/loved ones. Our son, now 7, puts it on the top for reading just prior to the Thanksgiving holiday; we usually read it several times during the fall season.
