Being thankful is a perennial theme for this young age group. Learning to appreciate yourself, the people around you, and people's unique gifts and individuality is a lesson that is more crucial now than ever, and that is what is at the heart of this touching story.
Author Lisa McCourt and illustrator Cyd Moore team up once again to bring us a truly endearing tale of mother and child that's perfect for the Thanksgiving holiday but can live all year round. This new story is the closest in feel and tone to the original, and with over one and a half million copies sold of I Love You, Stinky Face, we're confident this one will truly resonate with this audience.
THANK YOU, STINKY FACE stars a little boy who asks his mom, "Are you thankful for me?" He and his mom are cooking and his hands are a mess, but his mom reminds him that she's still thankful for him. The boy continues to ask what else his mom is thankful for. His arms? His mouth?
The illustrations go perfectly with the words and are adorable. This book is perfect for a mom to read with her son. It reminds our children that we're thankful for them no matter how "stinky" and dirty they are. It is the perfect representation of a child's imagination and a mother's love.
Final Verdict: This is a book for a humor and family love. It's a great book to read with Thanksgiving around the corner!
