Review by Zoe @ the blessed and bewildered blog
Overall Rating
I have loved all three of the children's board books that I have read and reviewed by Bonnie Rickner Jensen to date. I pray that there are many more coming. My kids have loved them too (including my 18-year-old!). My family and I have given each of them a solid 5-star rating. The board books are just so God-honoring, sweetly written, and down-right adorable. A Very Thankful Prayer is no exception. A perfect book to snuggle up with your toddler, or your teen, to read during the Thanksgiving season. And who says it just has to be at Thanksgiving... we can enjoy it all throughout the year.

A Very Thankful Prayer is a book that I will have sitting on my Thanksgiving table for everyone to look through during the day (even though my kids aren't very little anymore). This beautiful book is a priceless way to spark some ideas for all ages around your table to share what they are thankful for.

My family and I have a tradition of creating a thankful tree, or thankful wall banner each Thanksgiving season to remind us of how God cares for us. A reminder to have grateful hearts. During Thanksgiving week I will have a mason jar sitting out prominently. It contains a variety of thankfulness tags, fun pens, and a means of attaching them to the tree or banner. I typically hole punch the tags at the top and attach a short piece of bakers twine to hang the tags on the tree. For a banner, I would have a roll of double-sided tape nearby. My husband and I encourage everyone throughout the week to think about what they have to be thankful for (outside their toys ;) and to write them down and hang them on the tree. Don't forget to add your own!!!

After we eat the glorious Thanksgiving meal, while slumping in our chairs from our overextended stomachs, we find that the kids are calm and relaxed. That is the perfect time to go around the table and share what each of us is thankful for. If new ideas pop up we add them to the tree. It is so fun to hear everyone share their blessings.

God Loves Daddy & Me and God Loves Mommy & Me are the first two books that I reviewed by Bonnie Rickner Jensen. The illustrator was Laura Watkins for both of those stories. I genuinely LOVE her artwork. A Very Thankful Prayer introduced me to a new illustrator, Natalia Moore. Moore is another incredible illustrator. You will truly enjoy just looking at the book.

Don't miss this one... it's priceless!
