About The Book
From acclaimed and beloved creators Cynthia Rylant and Sergio Ruzzier comes a cozy and quirky picture book that reminds us of all the wonderful things we have to be thankful for.
We give thanks for apple trees
and bushes filled with roses.
We give thanks for nice warm soup
and fires to warm our toeses.
Follow two sweet friends as they zip around town talking to all their pals about the things they love. The pair may even have a plan cooking to show everyone their gratitude! With its themes of thankfulness and inclusion, this playfully illustrated story is the perfect read for Thanksgiving—or for any day of the year.
