Book Review - Grateful Jake
About the Book
A homework assignment on gratitude leaves Jake completely stumped. After all, he's just an ordinary 8 year old boy - what's so great about that? But a weekend of adventures opens his eyes to the true meaning of gratitude, and just how lucky he is that it's always within his reach. This engagingly illustrated picture book will help introduce your young readers to the concept of gratitude, and the accompanying Grateful Jake Resource Guide (also available from Amazon) will help you expand on those ideas with activities your whole family will enjoy.
My Take on the Book
I would encourage you to find this book to read to your child and then follow up with a discussion of the things they are grateful for in their lives.As the authors illustrated, it could be having pizza for dinner. Showing you are grateful does not have to be huge like winning thousands of dollars. Such a down to earth story to share with children at home or at school. The story clearly illustrated all the nonmaterialistic events in ones life which can bring a feeling of gratefulness.
