This gentle message of gratitude and connection, enhanced 
by beautifully simple collage illustrations, makes for a charming gift.

Sun gives us light.
Thank you, sun.

Clouds bring the rain that help flowers grow. Sheep give us wool for our sweaters and hats. The honey that sweetens our bread comes from bees (thank you, bees). With spare, repetitive text and bright, torn-paper collage artwork, this picture book gives even the youngest readers a subtle sense of how everyday things are related — and inspires an appreciation for life’s simple gifts.

This is an exuberant book about some everyday gifts from the natural world and a lighthearted way to express gratitude for them, with words that are easy, charming and important to say out loud now and then: “Thank you, bees,” “Thank you, trees,” “Thank you, Earth.” —Washington Post
