This padded board book is essentially a short but emphatic prayer of gratitude, just right for mealtime, storytime, or bedtime. “Thank you for this great, big world,/ for making skies so blue,/ for coloring the flowers/ for every ‘I love you.’/ For these blessings big and small.../ I am thankful for them all,” it reads in its entirety. Invoking a vintage aesthetic reminiscent of the work of Alexander Girard or Mary Blair, Walsh creates an inviting setting of blue skies, green grasses, and smiling clouds and animals for a handful of children to explore. Available simultaneously: Tiny Blessings: For Bedtime. Up to age 3. Author’s agency: Working Title Agency. Illustrator’s agency: Lilla Rogers Studio. (Mar.)
