THANKS A TON! is filled to the brim with bright colors, rhymes, animals, and gratitude. While an elephant has a hard time expressing in words how much small kindnesses have meant to them, they know about the stuff that says thanks. For instance, letting them win deserves a terrapin turtle and making them smile deserves a crocodile. With plenty of fun animals and scenarios that children will recognize, this is a sweet book about gratitude as well as how much small kindnesses can mean to someone.

What I loved: This book is full of charm from the fantastic illustrations with neon colors to the adorable animals that literally fill the pages. It even has a fold-out long image at the end for some extra, interactive fun. There are also some really fun details with the animals and the little snail who has something adorable to say on each page. A particular favorite in our house is when the snail says "Big Hug!" for a hug with all the animals and the chant on the inside of the back cover that begs to be repeated.

The story captures not only the importance of saying thanks (even without giving animals), but also the value that small acts of kindness can have. From making others smile to giving up your seat on the bus or sharing a meal, these seemingly small things can have a big impact. This message is conveyed throughout the book and can encourage young readers to give others kindness in their every day life as it means so much.

The story is fun to read aloud with rhymes on every page that flow easily off the tongue. The font is clear and large enough for caregivers to easily read. This could appeal to a large range of ages, as the amount of text to pictures is reasonably low and the number of pages would be great for even older picture book readers.

Final verdict: Full of charming illustrations, rhymes, and animals, THANKS A TON! is a great book about kindness and gratitude that is perfect when enjoyed as a gift, around the Thanksgiving holiday, and/or just for fun!
