10 Thoughtful Children's Books About Gratitude to Help Kids Feel More Thankful
Recently, when I asked my 3-year-old what he was thankful for, he said, "Target." I thought he probably didn't realize what thankfulness meant until he explained, "We're always happy at Target, Mama!" So, yes, he totally gets it. I try to teach my kids thankfulness as often as I can, but sometimes it's challenging to figure out the right words to meet their understanding, especially if you don't always feel grateful yourself. That's where children's books come in. With colorful illustrations, easy-to-understand storylines, and relatable characters, it's easy for kids to learn the importance of gratitude. Next step: help them practice gratitude every day — and maybe reconsider that Target thing . . .
