I can also see adult readers teaching a relevant bible story to go with the rhymes. While I love the themes in this book, I didn't like the writing as much. The language is generic and lacks originality. They look like something that an elementary school child may have written. And while there are verses describing family and common activities, the choice of words didn't bring these elements to life.
I didn't feel like I was there in the moment. All that said, this is a good teaching tool. Even outside of the Thanksgiving season, it's easy to let the hustle and bustle of life catch hold of me.
Oftentimes, I find myself worrying about things that won't matter in the long run. This book inspired me to examine my life and give thanks for the little things.
