Sometimes it’s a challenge to remember to be thankful. In Being Thankful by Mercer Mayer, Little Critter is letting his wants get the better of him. Why can’t he have cool new sneakers, or a fancy new scooter? Why do other kids get to have big ice cream sundaes and trips to the movie theater when he only gets an ice cream cone and a dvd at home? Mom and Dad try to help him remember to be thankful for all the things he does have, but Little Critter is really having a hard time. One day, he goes a bit too far and takes his frustration out on his little sister. Mom and Dad think it’s time for him to visit his grandparents. Grandma and Grandpa live on a farm. While being their helper, Little Critter realizes how thankful each animal is for a place to live and the food they are fed. Just in case he forgets again, Grandpa gives Little Critter a “thankful rock” to keep in his pocket and bring out whenever he needs a reminder. Any fans of Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter will enjoy this latest installment, and anyone in need of a gentle reminder to be thankful will have a fun time being reminded.
