Time to say ‘Gracias’

As I mentioned over at SpanglishBaby today, now that my three-year-old daughter is able to kind of understand the meaning of Thanksgiving, we’ve been talking about it a lot.

Since she is a big book-lover, I was very thankful when we received Pat Mora’s latest book, “Gracias/Thanks” last week because it instantly became a great way to explain what this beautiful holiday is all about.

As you probably know by now, we’re are big fans of Mora and this bilingual book does not disappoint. It’s the story of a little boy who lists all the things for which he is thankful. The sentences are simple enough for preschoolers to understand and my daughter is able to identify with all the things the little boy is thankful for like the ladybugs, the waves and Abuelita.

Every night after we finish reading this book, we each take turns saying some things for which we are thankful and I love that my daughter, like the little boy in the book, is always thankful for her familia.
