I received this book as a gift from a friend who is familiar with my interest in quirky things. Although it is technically a children's book (and I have no children) I enjoyed the book for a few simple reasons. The book, "An Awesome Book of Thanks," can be considered a piece of folk art because the illustrations are not perfect but, in a whimsical way, they are heartwarming and filled with vibrant colors, capturing the attention of the reader. In addition, the book's message is an important lesson that transcends age, reminiscent of earlier classic works such as the "The Giving Tree". The author artfully and plainly reminds the reader of all we have which can be taken for granted and that we should be thankful for those things. Finally, the book is quite sturdy which is great for young children who tend to batter their books and toys, or if you are like me and just have a bad habit of leaving books everywhere, this book will endure the punishment.
"An Awesome Book of Thanks" would be an excellent addition to any classroom, child's book shelf, or for any one who enjoys collecting interesting books.
