Thank You For Me!

Thank You For Me! by Marion Dane Bauer, illustrated by Kristina Stephenson.

This affirming picture book can help a child recognize what a blessing it is to have eyes to see, ears to hear, legs to run, etc. and to be thankful.

"I have two hands to pray. I have one heart to listen. I have one mouth to say...Thank you! Thank you for hands and feet that keep a beat, for ears that hear, and eyes that see. Thank you for each bendy knee."

Although this book talks about prayer and being thankful, it doesn't actually say who to be thankful to. Therefore, you are free to elaborate on whomever you want, i.e. God, parents.
