Synopsis: Would you like to start a new bedtime tradition that underscores the importance of gratitude? Read Before I Sleep: I Say Thank You with your children to begin a nightly routine of saying five things you are grateful for before bed. It will add sweetness and joy before your little one falls asleep.
It's bedtime and after brushing his teeth and zooming to bed in Mom's airplane arms the little boy begins reminiscing about his day. He recalls ways he could have been more helpful like when mom needed assistance picking tomatoes and he decided to play instead. He also shares things he's thankful for like playing soccer and catching frogs.
This is a delightfully whimsical story with bright and playful illustrations. I love that it reminds children and parents that each day offers so much to be grateful for. All we have to do is take the time to notice.
I highly recommend picking up a copy. Available on Amazon.
