Quick Overview:

Give Thanks to the Lord, written by New York Times bestselling author Karma Wilson and Illustrated by Amy June Bates, tells a heartwarming story about the Thanksgiving holiday based on Psalm 92.

"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."

Celebrate the season in this heartwarming story that references Psalm 92 in tender rhyme from award-winning author Karma Wilson. Told from the point of view of one young member of an extended family, Give Thanks to the Lord celebrates joy of all kinds, from the arrival of distant relatives to a cozy house already filled with merriment, to apple cider and the delicious smells of roasting turkey and baking pie.  And just when your mouth is watering, sit down and join a thankful child in prayer, praising God for “food and fun and family, all the wonderful things I see.”

About the Contributor(s) Karma Wilson

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. But Providence had different plans, and now Karma writes poems for a living when she's not busy being a wife and raising three kids. Karma is the bestselling author of Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More, as well as If I Were a Mouse, Give Thanks to the Lord, and I Will Rejoice.

Overall Rating
Give Thanks to the LORD is a new children's picture book celebrating thankfulness (& the Thanksgiving holiday), inspired by Psalm 92.

Although the cover says "celebrating Psalm 92", Give Thanks to the LORD does not cover the full Psalm (more like the first 4 verses, only vaguely covering verses 2-4). It does not have the full text of the Psalm in print, only verse 1.

With that being said, however, the book has a great theme throughout of thanking God for friends, family, weather, nature, food, drinks, fun, and more food.

The illustrations in Give Thanks to the LORD by Amy June Bates are big, warm, and interesting. They have a "sketch" quality to them, as you can see from the cover image.

Give Thanks to the LORD has charming words, large illustrated pages, and a fantastic theme. I think it is a great book to read with young ones.
