Books About Gratitude For Kids

Reading with my kids is one of my favorite activities. I love that they share my passion for the written word and being able to snuggle up with them and share a good book is priceless. Today I’m sharing 3 books about gratitude for kids. It is no secret around here that I believe it is important to instill the practice of gratitude and giving back in our children at an early age.

The Blankful Heart by Mr. Meus

Suitable for children ages 4-8

This picture-less book is meant to be read aloud and inspire the imaginations of the young and young at heart.

 The Thankful Book by Todd Parr

Suitable for children ages 3-6

This book celebrates all the little things children can give thanks for. From everyday activities like reading and bathtime to big family meals together and special alone time between parent and child, the author inspires readers to remember all of life’s special moments.

I’m Thankful Each Day by P. K. Hallinan

 Suitable for ages 1 and up

This book with its simple text and colorful illustrations make for a great read with your toddlers to share the beauty and gratitude that can be found in the world around us.

The Berenstain Bears Get The Gimmies by Stan & Jan Berenstain

The Berenstain Bears are a childhood favorite of mine! I love being able to share books and series with my kids that I read when I was their age. The Berenstain Bears definitely fall into that category.

What are your favorite books on gratitude to share with your kids?

Each Thursday on Divas With A Purpose, we pause to reflect on what we’re thankful for. Gratitude is a huge part of my life. A few years ago I made a conscious decision to reflect more on what I had versus what I did not have – since then I’ve seen a considerable positive change in my attitude and demeanor even in stressful situations. I encourage my supporters to take a moment to think about what they have to be thankful for. Feel free to share below in the comments – you never know how you’ll inspire and motivate someone else.

Make sure to join us on Mondays when we share our Making A Happy Home Moments.
In case you missed it, I guest posted yesterday for a fellow diva and shared why I’m going half on a car for my tween. Head over and check it out! I’d love to get your input.

I would love to have these for our kids as well. They always want us to read books to them at night time and before bed time. What lovely books these are. Haven't heard of them before. Thanks!

my son loves it when i read stories with him, sometimes he gets bored though, however whenever he likes the story he wants me to repeat them a million times.

This is a good list of books. Our children pay attention to what we show them and teach them, even at a young age. It is wonderful that you are teaching your children gratitude.
