Thanks to everyone who shared with me their favourite kid’s books on gratitude. I’m starting off the review list with a book by Dallas Clayton, one of the first self-publishers that came to my attention, with the Awesome Book. The Awesome Book of Thanks follows on from his self-publishing and sharing philosophy. You can actually check out the whole entire book here.
Dallas has been described as the next Dr Seuss, and while I think that might be a bit of a push, his books are definitely channelling the same enthusiasm for dreams, imagination and a bit of nonsense. This book is probably for the toddler to preschool age kids but I reckon older kids would enjoy reading it too, if only because the illustrations are so appealing. A nice way to introduce gratitude as a concept. I’m giving it 4 stars (out of 5).
