Product Description

Little pup is sad that it is fall, with winter coming right around the corner. He can only think of the negative things, like all of his friends going into hibernation, and the cold, wet weather. But his Mama and Papa are quick to teach him to learn to see things with a thankful heart, and to be thankful for winter, because without it the land and the animals wouldn't have the rest they truly need. Mama reminds him about leaves and apple treats---and he learns that he can be happy if he's thankful despite his concerns.

Publisher's Description

Adventurous Lil Pup is bummed that hibernating season will soon be coming to the Great North Woods. Why should so many of his friends have to go in for the winter and leave Lil Pup without pals? Mama reminds her little wolf that not all animals hibernate, and how he can be grateful for the beautiful autumn season – for jumping in leaf piles, eating apple treats, and celebrating the wonders of fall with his forest friends.  And she points out…

"I think the trick to having a thankful heart is thinking about the things that make us happy, rather than the things that don’t."

As Mama and Lil Pup explore, she reminds him that God is the giver of all good things. Lil Pup learns that even when something fun comes to an end; his heart can be thankful when he sets his mind on the best things in his life.

This inviting addition to the best-selling God Gave Us series, with nearly 2.5 million books sold, helps little ones to understand how giving thanks warms hearts and brings joy.

    This author has written several children's books with a sweet polar bear. Her newest book focuses on a wolf family and little wolf's discovery of thankfulness. Adding this to our back-to-school/ fall book rotation but it has a temporary place on our book shelf - We just didn't find this picture book/ story to be very interesting.

    The "God Gave Us"-themed books usually follow a curious polar bear cub, but "God Gave Us Thankful Hearts" now centers on a fox family. Lisa Tawn Bergren continues to write in a comfortable conversational manner. Initially, I was slow to warm up to the new fox pup, but by the last page, I really appreciated the lessons and examples of thankfulness that permeate the story.

    The pup is glum at the beginning of the book because he is dreading the arrival of winter. His mom carefully leads him to see instances, even after sad events, that could be seen through joyful eyes. Pup's dad also makes an appearance and offers significant comments about enjoying events, merely because they are together.

    When I read the book to my young children, I was able to pause and ask follow-up questions, either from the fall-colored artwork or with the written examples. Overall, my kids seemed to like the new fox family just as much as our friends, the polar bears. This is another nice book to have on your bookshelf!

    I received this book from Blogging for Books for my honest review.

    Another great added addition to the GOD Gave Us books. This book tells of a bear family and the baby bear is not happy with the changes that the Fall season brings. As his mother and father correct him to be thankful for the things he has and for the changes. This is a great story that teaches all ages to look at what you have, not what you don't have.

    I would recommend this book to everyone, the art work and story line is of great teachings. When reading this book, it will make you realize how thankful you should be for everything, good and bad. Buy this book for yourself and buy it for a gift, it is one of those books that you will talk about, think about and learn a lesson from. GREAT BOOK!!! I am very thankful for this author and artist, can't wait for the next one.

    Really great children's book, especially as we get closer to Thanksgiving. "God Gave Us Thankful Hearts," written by Lisa Tawn Bergren and artwork by David Holm, is a delightful book that tells the story of Lil' Pup who is grumbling over the fact that Winter is approaching. This 40 page hard cover book is simple for a young reader to enjoy, but also suitable for parents to read to younger children. The lesson to be grateful and look for the positive in all things is one that needs to be taught early, and the book is a perfect conversation opener or even a game to encourage children to develop an attitude of gratitude early in life. Children will also love looking at the bright Autumn colors that Holm uses throughout the book. A great addition to your personal or church library.

    I received a copy of this book from Waterbrook-Multnomah "Blogging For Books" program at no cost to myself. However, I was not required to write a positive review.
