Max Lucado's 'Thank You, God, For Blessing Me' Read 2 Me Hermie Review
The book, perfect for little hands, is based on the full-length story of Hermie (a caterpillar who discovers God has a lot more in store for him than met the eye). With amazingly sweet illustrations, your child is sure to fall in love with this little caterpillar. But, what makes the story even more endearing is the fact that the little green creature recounts all the things he's thankful for - While still in his worm-like state. He has not even transitioned into becoming a beautiful butterfly. Yet, he discovers many things he is already thankful for right there in his garden.
As you walk through this book, you may notice it has the rhythm of a child's poem or prayer book. Why not turn it into a prayer your child can learn and recite by heart. By the end of the story, your child will be counting her own little blessings. Mom and dad might think of a blessing or two as well. It's the perfect send off to dreamland, with a thankful heart!
I was able to review the book as part of the Booksneeze program. I received a hard cover, board book in exchange for my thoughts on the book. I have read it, fallen in love with it, and everything I have shared is 100% my opinion.
