Thank You, God, for Mommy

Thank You, God, for Mommy

Two adorable pandas take you on a journey into thankfulness in the delightful board book by Amy Parker entitled, “ Thank You, God, for Mommy.”

Little Panda tells you and your child why he is thankful for his mommy in this sweet story for the infant and toddler crowd. He speaks of his mommy and her caring nature, patience with messes, and boo-boo kisses with deep love and affection. The beautiful illustrations help the children see the characteristics spoken by Little Panda. The author points the reader to the expressions of faith shown by Mommy Panda in her words and actions and shows these actions vividly in the illustrations.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it for all parents of infants and toddlers who want to reinforce Christian principals when they share stories with their children. The last illustration in the book tells it all when it shows Little Panda covering up Mommy as she lay sleeping. By doing so, he is showing his love for her even as she showed her love for him.

This book was provided to me free of charge from Thomas Nelson Publishers for review purposes.
