The Thank You Letter


Add your own review!

Overview

Grace sets off to spread gratitude to everyone in her community and receives a delightful response! Grace writes charming and humorous letters to thank relatives and friends for her birthday presents. But why stop there? To who else can she give thanks? Grace thanks Mr. Jones for teaching her to read, her dog for his waggy tail, and the sky for being so blue. Soon showers of thoughtful letters and notes are circulating through the town. When Grace returns home, a gatefold reveals that the inside is decorated from floor to ceiling with notes, cards, and letters responding to her thoughtful missives. Favorite storytime author and illustrator, Jane Cabrera's vivid and textured acrylic paintings are filled with joyful cuteness and warmth. Patterns from the inside of envelopes smartly add to the epistolary theme. This delightful celebration of mindful thankfulness and community togetherness is perfect for curling up in a cozy spot and sharing one-on-one.

the animated art style, with deeply textured acrylic colors in invitingly warm colors and cheery scrapbook paper collage, buoys the effort. . . . who can't use a gentle nudge to remember manners? --Kirkus Reviews Cabrera mixes Grace's own childlike handwriting and drawings with the book's sweetly simple illustrations to charming effect. . . . This cute, over-the-top story would make a great segue into lessons on letter writing or good manners. --Booklist This beautifully illustrated picture book for young children is a great lesson in communicating appreciation and gratitude. The illustrations, created with acrylic paint and collage, predominantly display Grace's handwritten notes on notebook paper surrounded by the objects and people of Grace's affection. The bold use of color is alluring and the overall feel of the book is one of great joy. The text is descriptive and uncomplicated and the story moves at an energetic pace that will keep young readers engaged until the very end. A love story about kindness and gratitude that serves as a good reminder for the young and the young-at-heart. --School Library Journal
