"Thank You, God, For Mommy" by Amy Parker

"Thank You, God, For Mommy"
written by Amy Parker and illustrated by Frank Endersby

In this adorable board book, a little panda thanks God for his wonderful mommy—a mommy who gives hugs and cuddles, who takes great care of him, and most importantly, who offers love and guidance for her precious panda cub.

Thank You, God, for Mommy,
And lullabies so sweet—
The beating of her great, big heart
Sings me right to sleep.

The love and sacrifices of mothers everywhere will be celebrated by mother and child as they snuggle up together and say Thank You, God, for Mommy

My thoughts...
This is such a sweet story, that any mommy would want to share with their little ones. It is presented as a prayer by a young panda bear offering thanks to God for his/her mommy and all that she does for him/her. I never really found anything in the story that said the bear was a boy or girl, but it doesn't really matter.

As a mommy myself, I absolutely loved this book! I loved reading this book to my daughters, and they loved listening and looking at the pictures over and over again! The illustrations are just beautiful, and really show how much baby loves mommy. We love to tell each other in our family how much we love one another, and this book definitely encourages that! This could definitely be a bedtime favorite in our house! But since I have it NetGalley (e-reading) I will have to go buy the book when it comes out in April :)

I would recommend any family (especially Christian) to own this book and share it with your family! It truly will bring a tear (or two) to your eye and make you hold your little ones even closer...and they will be asking you to read it over and over again!

Learn more about the book here. You can buy this book on Amazon (avail. April 5, 2011)

Thank You so much Net Galley and Thomas Nelson for allowing me to read this book! I cannot wait to read more books from you in the future!
