I have gifted this precious book and recording to two children, an elementary teacher and an adult producer. Each report how dear the message and the music is. Personally, I can hardly get it out of my mind. It has become my new theme song.

Great Teaching Tool!
I received my copy in the mail last week. It is exactly what I hoped it would be. The illustrations are great! I am an elementary music teacher, and this will be the perfect tool to use at the end of mysogwriting unit this month! I love the song and it's simple but truly profound message! I listen to the song over and over again!

What a wonderful gift for a child.
While I would have selected a different artist to do the vocalization, the CD sends a clear and definite that we should all be greatful for the many blessings we have. What a wonderful way to teach a child this concept. This was a gift for a mother to share with her newly adopted daughter.

Joan Power

Excellent! I loved the illustrations and the song was hauntingly beautiful.

Simple, sparkling, and beautiful. A wonderful expression of thanksgiving!
A simple expression of thanks, this song touches your heart with it's sincerity and beauty. Kids will love it as they read the book. This song will add a wonderful listening element to an elementary reading lesson, but it also is just a beautiful song to be listened to again and again.

This song echoes thru your happiest memories
Juhn Bucchino is an amazing writer - I've obsesssed over other pieces from his Grateful cd, but taking this song and illustrating it for children was a brilliant idea. When I feel lucky or accomplished, strains of this song cement the moment and allow me a little prayer of gratitude. It's a sweet song and charming illustrated book for young children - A++
