BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS Teaching children to help others and give thanks is something we strive to do all year long, however, it is especially important during the holidays when we stop to celebrate our blessings and both give and receive gifts. Team ModernSage would like to share a few book selections to help you share the spirit of giving with your child. Thanks a Million By Nikki Grimes. Illustrated by Cozbi A. Cabrera Nikki Grimes is an award-winning author who through this book of poems will help your child give thought to true thankfulness. Each poem in the book conveys a message of thankfulness. People in various life circumstances express their gratitude for friends, family, including the gift of a warm night in a homeless shelter and a “thank you” in sign language. The 16 poems in the book include a rebus, a riddle, haiku, and other verse forms. A favorite poem from the book describes “thank you” as a seed planted “in the garden of your heart.” You won’t be disappointed by this thoughtful book selection! A Fun Idea! After completing one of the gift or craft ideas, have your child write a thank you poem of their own and surprise a friend or family member with this unique “thank you” gift. Plus, check out the “Planting Gratitude” activity as a companion to this wonderful book. In My Family Written and illustrated Carmen Lomas Garza. Carmen Garza Lomas celebrates her family and childhood growing up in a small Texas town. In this colorful bilingual book we meet many of her extended family, including her grandparents as they prepare and stir-fry fresh-cut cactus pads in the kitchen. The author shares in family traditions and celebrations - her cousin’s wedding (where the bride is blessed by her mother), a miracle involving the Virgin of Guadalupe (which appeared on a water tower of a nearby ranch), and a family birthday cook-out where a great uncle consoles a crying young child. The vibrant illustrations accentuate the warm and colorful family life in this Mexican American community. Note: This book has received numerous awards and honors, including the 1997 Children’s Book of Distinction.      Page 4   ©2006 ModernSage.com, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Round the Turkey: A Grateful Thanksgiving Written by Leslie Kimmelman. Illustrated by Nancy Cote. Through this entertaining and sweet book, we meet Jesse and his extended family as they gather around the Thanksgiving dinner table. The opening 2-page spread is a drawing of a tree with drawings of Jesse’s family members arranged in a family tree. As the family sits down to dinner, Jesse’s grandmother suggests they go around the table and share what they are grateful for this Thanksgiving Day. Each person’s response is written in a rhyming verse. Uncle Dave and Aunt Terry are thankful for the daughter they are adopting from a faraway land. Pre-teen Susan is thankful for her speech therapist, while Nelson is thankful for his pets. And, Jesse’s mom and dad are thankful for their messy and noisy children. This cheerful and colorful book helps us appreciate the big and little things in life! A Fun Idea! Gather a large piece of paper and some family photos (Kids – get permission first to use any photos!). Draw and color a tree trunk, branches and leaves. Arrange the photos to form a family tree and glue to the tree branches. Are you missing photos for some family members? See if you can locate them through cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents. Tattered Sails Written by Verla Kay. Illustrated by Dan Adreasen. Verla Kay takes us on a journey full of hope and hardship from England to the New World. Beautiful watercolors full of emotion highlight the rhythmic verses that tell the story of “Canvas billows, Salty Breeze, Water glistens, Azure Seas.” Of course, all is not pleasant on the voyage, as she describes  “wormy biscuits, lice and rats”. This is a good selection for young and old alike as we remember the sacrifices made by the early settlers. A Fun Idea! As you read Tattered Sails to your child, a niece, a nephew, a grandchild or a favorite young friend, mark off a 3 foot square area with tape. Ask them to  pretend they are a passenger on the ship in the story and this is the space they have to themselves.
