The kids and I already have and enjoy Dallas' other Awesome book, so it was no big surprise to discover the treasure awaiting us in this new one.
I especially love the way he uses both pages in one spread, not worrying about the page split. It makes his message bigger, stronger, louder (in a good way). But the illustrations are just half of the book, the poetry is very meaningful and great for night time read-alouds. It reminds us to be thankful for everything around us, the living and non-living, the good and the bad.
I'm thankful that Dallas gave me the chance to read and share his book with all of you, and guess what? He also offered to do a giveaway for one of my readers. One of you will get your own copy of An Awesome Book of Thanks. A comment will be chosen from those left on this post, and if you click "Follow" (there in the top left sidebar), you can leave an extra one for a second entry. I'll pick the lucky person next Friday, January 14th.
Good luck, but even if you don't win, please be sure to get your hands on this book and read it at least once. It really is a gem.
