Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In colors as bright as sunshine, Caldecott Honor Illustrator Molly Bang presents a young child who is thankful for the world around him/her.

Few children's book artists can capture the voice and feelings of a young child as well as master painter Molly Bang, the recipient of three Caldecott Honors. Bang's most popular books are in this genre, such as our own WHEN SOPHIE GETS ANGRY--REALLY, REALLY ANGRY..., which has sold more than a million copies in the United States. In this book, a child is thankful for those things that are most immediate to a youngster--including hands, feet, eyes, and ears. Simple and very engaging!

Review:

"A child celebrates his body, senses, emotions and surroundings in this lyrical story, illustrated with crayon, paint and collage art on brown paper bags. Simple images of a boy with yellow felt overalls contrast with finely detailed renderings of his cat and the collaged objects that inhabit his world. Several pairs of the boy's hands are shown petting and playing with the cat: 'What grand hands! Thank you, hands, for gripping and throwing and patting and holding. And for hugging.' Crayon lines extend beyond the frame of some pictures, suggesting a work in progress, creation in the making. Caldecott Honor artist Bang (When Sophie Gets Angry — Really, Really Angry...) amplifies this notion in a concluding note about how she created this book, encouraging kids to make their own ('Don't forget to make a cover!'). At times, the book feels like a game for parent and child ('I smell with my... nose,' reads the text as pie, cheese and other odiferous objects float above in a starry sky), but the overall effect is that of a joyful, grateful prayer. Ages 3 — 5. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Through pictures as bright as sunshine, three-time Caldecott Honor artist Bang speaks directly to young children in this bold, colorful book of thanks that is sure to fascinate and engage young readers and their parents. Full color.
