Published by Thomas Nelson it is obvious from the beginning (scripture reference of Psalm 107:1) that this particular Little Critter book is based on Christian principles. Written in first person by Little Critter, the opening page has him wishing for a scooter in the shop window rather than being thankful for the one he already has. Little Critter continues to be ungrateful, always wishing for something "better". Even a talk from Dad doesn't stop him.

A word of caution here. If you do not like your child reading about being nasty to a sibling this might not be the book for you. When Little Sister bumps into Little Critter, causing him to drop his ice cream cone he says "I wish I had a big brother instead of a dumb little sister like you." Needless to say, Little Critter's mom reprimands him. The next day Little Critter is out at Grandma's farm. How did this trip help change Little Critter's attitude?

This book has a tremendous lesson for all of us, not just the kids. FANTASTIC story to share with your family. Thanks, Liz

I really like the Inspired Kids collection with Little Critter. All these books offer a moral lesson for children in a way that is easy for them to understand and refer to. The pictures as always are just beautiful. In this story, Little Critter wishes he has things other kids have or things that he thinks are better than his. He wants to go to the movies instead of having a movie night at home with his family. He wants to go to a restaurant instead of eating at home. His father tells him that a lot of people would love to have what he has and he has to be thankful for what he has. This is a good way to put things in perspective. Well, telling is not as effective as showing, so Little Critter continues to wish for more things. What I did not like was when Little Critter was mad at his sister for knocking his ice cream down and Little Critter said he wished he had a big brother instead of a dumb little sister. I did not like the use of the word "dumb", though I know some kids will actually say this. My daughter, being the "little sister" in the family, took it to heart. I think such words are unnecessary in books like this. Also, when his mom told him to say he's sorry, he did not reply or apologize to his sister.
Other than that, I liked the book, but I will be editing that word from now on, though my daughter already knows it's there.
Finally, Little Critter visits the farm and sees how happy and content the animals are with the food they have. So he goes home with a new perspective and even teaches his sister to be appreciative as well. That's all :) Gotta love Little Critter.

Teaches gratitude in a simple way. It gives an idea for parents to do with their children to remind them to be grateful. It would be fun to read the book and then follow what they do in the book with your children. The only thing I did not like is at one point little critter calls his sister dumb. The point could have been made without that and I personally just leave it out when I read it.

I used to have many of the Little Critter books when I was a kid (over 30 years ago) and my son's love for the collection proves that they have stood the test of time! This book, "Being Thankful" is part of the Inspired Kids series, which I have just recently started buying. In short, the moral of the story is to be grateful for and love everything that you DO have in your life and to stop focusing on what other people have that you don't. With all of the fancy gadgets of today's world, this can be a difficult lesson to teach a child and it helps for the lesson to be reinforced by a book as kids don't always want to listen to what their parents say! In this story, Grandma and Grandpa refocus the little Critters' attention on their "special rock," which helps them to stop and think about everything they are thankful to have in their lives. Good story, great lesson!

I didn't realize this was a Critter book for older kids. I love the simpler Critter books for my toddlers. I grew up reading those as a child and I like to buy them for the holidays. This one has a lot of writing so we won't be using it for several years. My daughter doesn't have a long enough attention span for this one. Now I know not to buy the "Inspired Kids" books.

I'm a preschool teacher and I'm always looking for new books to read to the children in my classroom. This is a very nice book with a great message. It's a little wordy and longer than I thought it would be but the children still enjoyed it.

I bought a bunch of these for different family members. Can't beat the price! I liked the themes and context....Grandpa, Dad, Grandma, etc. But they're very thin, lower quality paper. I guess that's reflected in the price. They don't have many pages, stores I very short and the illustrations are often very very busy. Almost to the point that my son has a hard time focusing on the story. So for us, they weren't a good fit. There arew better books where he can learn more and we can still tell a good story before bedtime.
I was hoping for a sweet story about a mom and her son, but this missed the mark for us. It's basically about a little boy that can't do anything right and his frustrated mother. I think it would have been better if there were a nice moment to balance out each bad one.
