I am thankful for music because it makes me want to dance. I am thankful for my feet because they help me run and play. I am thankful for kisses because they make me feel loved. Todd Parr's bestselling books have taught kids about unconditional love, respecting the earth, facing fears, and more, all with his signature blend of playfulness and sensitivity. Now, The Thankful Book celebrates all the little things children can give thanks for. From everyday activities like reading and bathtime to big family meals together and special alone time between parent and child, Todd inspires readers to remember all of life's special moments. The perfect book to treasure and share, around the holidays and throughout the year.

Today I am thankful for so much, including books! For my Kindle, libraries, little free libraries, and the opportunity to be a steward for my own 2 Heartland Little Free Libraries 😊 I'm thankful for litsy and wonderful Litten friends ☺️ For my friends, family, kids, grandkids, and fur kids ❤️. for power restored quickly, the ability to cook way more food than we'll be able to eat today, & the soup the leftovers will become tomorrow ☺️ #Thankful

I am thankful that both my children are doing such a great job of #raisingreaders. Each of the grandkids is getting a copy of this wonderful book for Christmas. Number one grandson is also getting Todd Parr‘s It‘s Okay to Make Mistakes because he tends to be very hard on himself. Darling granddaughter will love If Everything Were Pink because she‘s a princess who turns up her nose at most other colors 😂

Clare-Dragonfly Who‘s getting Harry Potter Uno? I‘ll take it if you‘re looking for a recipient 😆 2mo
Lynnsoprano @Clare-Dragonfly Our grandson is the recipient. His mom and I played Uno for countless hours while we lived in Prague. Her memorable quote was “think in your head” 😂 @Alisnazzy 2mo

Some of my favorite books!
1) Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
2) Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
3) And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
4) Matilda by Roald Dahl. I actually prefer the movie, but as a girl who felt misunderstood & who was the lone book lover in her family, I adored it so much growing up.
5) Everything by R.L. Stine because he really kickstarted my love of reading.

Bold and bright and fun. I am thankful for Todd Parr and his books and stories that I can read to my children at Thanksgiving that make them think about all sorts of things to be grateful for. And of course I chose the library page to feature. :)

What a lovely surprise when @Kaye announced I was the winner of her 50K Giveaway. :)

Kaye had an awesome game with 151 folks participating.

I am blessed that I won, and I thank @Kaye for her generosity.

Here is a photo of the package she has ready to mail. 😍

Looking forward to receiving her very generous gift.

SilversReviews @LazyDays Thank you. Yes extremely wonderful. @Kaye 2y
Kaye Thanks guys. Silver, shoot, I just noticed something when you reposted the picture above. I tried to get everything to match, put all the notes on the items, etc. I just saw one major thing I did wrong, so I‘d like to apologize ahead of time. I know your first name AND how to spell it, but my oldest granddaughter is named the same, and her name is spelled with an S where yours is the traditional Z. So sorry for the mistake. 2y
ElishaLovesBooks Congratulations!!🎉🎈Looks amazing! 2y

Gosh, @JenP - a package has arrived from you for Maddy! What a lovely surprise and thank you so much. It‘s enormously kind of you but then, as I‘ve learned, you‘re an incredibly kind person. We‘ve decided, in true Icelandic tradition, to open any Litsy presents on Christmas Eve. She can‘t wait! 💕

JenP Nice! It‘s wrapped so you can take it out of the packaging if you like. 2y

I'm #thankfulfor so many things this year. The relative health I have, that I still have my Mom (and she's nearly 2 years cancer-free), that life seems to be finally turning a corner for myself and my family. I'm thankful for my two kids, Sweetpea & Chico. And I'm oh so very very thankful for this awesome place full of fantastic people. It's the only place I really feel safe (online or in public). You've grown my ❤️& mind & book stacks. 💖you all!

Be #thankfulfor a healthy body. A loving & supportive family. Great friends. Be thankful for the freedom to go to a library/bookstore, choose any books we want. A good pair of eyes to read, ears to listen to audiobooks and music. Ability to put food on the table. Bad days, hard work. These are some of the things I remind myself to be #thankfulfor.
