God Gave Us Thankful Hearts by Lisa Tawn Bergren A Review

Adventurous Lil Pup is bummed that hibernating season will soon be coming to the Great North Woods. Why should so many of his friends have to go in for the winter and leave Lil Pup without pals? Mama reminds her little wolf that not all animals hibernate, and how he can be grateful for the beautiful autumn season – for jumping in leaf piles, eating apple treats, and celebrating the wonders of fall with his forest friends.  And she points out…

“I think the trick to having a thankful heart is thinking about the things that make us happy, rather than the things that don’t.”

As Mama and Lil Pup explore, she reminds him that God is the giver of all good things. Lil Pup learns that even when something fun comes to an end; his heart can be thankful when he sets his mind on the best things in his life.

  This is such a delightful book. I really love it and so will your children and grandchildren.
Little Pup was sad because summer was gone and things were dieing. He didn’t like winter when his friends would be hibernating, the leaves were changing colors.
  Mama explained to him that “The trick to having a thankful heart, is thinking about the things that make us happy, rather than the things that don’t.”

   They talk about harvesting, cozy houses, corn mazes and fishing.
  Little Pup comes to understand that you can be thankful for everything if you look at the good around you.
  Enjoyable book and I highly recommend it.
