Gracias Thanks by Pat Mora
Mora, Pat. (2009) Gracias Thanks. Illustrated by John Parra. Lee & Low Books.
A wonderfully poetic bilingual text that enumerates a series of things a young boy is thankful for: the sun, a ladybug, foamy waves, and other ordinary things in his life.
Give someone special in your life this book, accompanied by a list of things YOU are thankful for and make sure you include something about the person you are gifting. For example: I am thankful for the phone calls from beginning to read grand daughters in Nevada; and the interest in the Harry Potter books by their nine-year-old brother. Great readers, all -- and sparkles in my life. Gracias!
