By Jama Rattigan's Alphabet Soup

In this charming bilingual book, a multiracial boy lists some of the things he is most thankful for. . . . The childlike expression and perceptions are spot on, and the acrylic on illustration board folk art style pictures are festive, richly-hued, lively, and simply gorgeous. The engaging details and textures of the illos amplify the busy, wonder-filled, joyous playfulness of the boy’s everyday life, and will likely prompt readers to look more closely at the things around them and compile a list of their own. . . . Yes, for this lovely book, thanks! Gracias!—Jama Rattigan’s Alphabet Soup
