Think about how many beautiful things in your life you are thankful for. Can we name those things and situations to our kids to teach them the sense of gratitude? Absolutely! Well-being and success in adulthood are said to be taught by being grateful in childhood. Back in 2006, psychologists Nansook Park and Christopher Peterson carried out an analysis of parents’ descriptions of their children’s strengths. They found out that gratitude had the strongest relationship to life satisfaction. Isn’t that amazing?

That’s why today we’d like to show you this interesting kids’ book by the New York Times bestselling author Todd Parr.
