If Animals Gave Thanks
This bestselling story imagines how animals might show their gratitude!
If animals gave thanks, Crow would caw-caw for the great bowl of sky. Raccoon would chir-chirrrr thanks for her cub. Skunk would hiss-hiss for her stinky spray. And Bear would thank his friends with a bountiful feast. This delightful rhymed book will inspire you to think of what makes you thankful.

Nothing pleases me more than sharing my love of reading. The special times I spent reading with my children—cuddled close, delighting in the poetic prose, and discovering secrets in the illustrations—inspired me to write children’s books for other families and children to enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by.
