Product Description

When Little Critter sees something that someone else has, he wishes that he could have that too. His attitude gets worse as he begins to wish that everything in his life could be different, better, instead of being thankful for what he has. After an important trip to Grandma and Grandpa's farm, Little Critter learns an important lesson about thankfulness that he in turn passes on to Little Sister.

Publisher's Description

Join Little Critter® as he learns why it’s important to be thankful for what he has—not to be upset about what he doesn't. 

Since 1975, Mercer Mayer has been writing and illustrating stories about Little Critter® and the antics he stumbles into while growing up. Tommy Nelson is thrilled to bring this beloved brand to the Christian market with the Inspired Kids line of faith-based books featuring Little Critter.

In Being Thankful, Little Critter isn't gettinganything he wants. Gator gets cool brand-new sneakers, while Little Critter is stuck with his boring blue ones. Tiger’s dad has a boat—but not Little Critter’s dad. And even at the ice cream shop, Little Critter can’t enjoy his chocolate ice cream cone because he would rather have a huge ice cream sundae instead. But on a trip to the farm, Grandma shows Little Critter why thankfulness is so important and helps make any situation seem so much happier.

Based on Psalm 107:1this book will show children what gratitude is and why we should be thankful for all of the blessings God has given us.

  • Little Critter® brand has humorously portrayed issues kids face for almost 40 years

    This book is a good supplement to teaching thankfulness. It is more wordy than most regular Little Critter books, but still keeps children's attention.

    Teaching a child to be thankful is a hard job. Our very nature seems to lean towards selfishness. Everything around us just inspires us to want bigger, better and more, more, more. So what's a parent to do? Send them to their grandparents of course!

    Come along as Little Critter makes a trip to his grandparents' farm. While he is there his very clever grandparents begin to teach them lessons on being thankful. Grandma and Grandpa gently point out that sometimes we need to do something just because it makes someone else happy.

    One of the objects that Grandma uses to drive home the idea of thankfulness for Little Critter is a blue thankful rock. Grandma has a green thankful rock and Grandpa has a purple thankful rock. One of the best lines from the story is spoken by Grandma and Grandpa to Little Critter.

    "Remember how happy the farm animals were with what they had? And how happy we can be when we decide to appreciate what we have?" {Grandmother}

    I nodded. {Little Critter}

    Then Grandpa pulled his thankful rock from his pocket. "That's what it means to have gratitude--to be thankful for everything in your life," said Grandpa. "Sometimes when I forget, I look at my thankful rock and I praise God for His goodness and for all the things I'm thankful for--like you Little Critter!"

    When Little Critter arrives back home it seems that the ungrateful bug has bitten Little Sister. But Little Critter has taken his grandparents' lesson to heart and gives his little sister a red thankful rock. Don't you love it when your children learn a valuable lesson and pass it on to their younger siblings? Peer pressure can sometimes be a good thing, especially when it is coming from an older sibling.

    I think you and your children will love this wonderful book on thankfulness by the talented Mercer Mayer. It is a delightful way to address the topic of being content with what God has given us. Psalm 107:1 tell us to "Thank the Lord because he is good. His love continues forever." What a powerful statement on being thankful!

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
