Children's Book Review: Thank You God for Mommy

Thank You, God, For Mommy

About the Book:
In this adorable board book, a little panda thanks God for his wonderful mommy—a mommy who gives hugs and cuddles, who takes great care of him, and most importantly, who offers love and guidance for her precious panda cub.

Thank You, God, for Mommy,
And lullabies so sweet—
The beating of her great, big heart
Sings me right to sleep.

The love and sacrifices of mothers everywhere will be celebrated by mother and child as they snuggle up together and say Thank You, God, for Mommy

My Comments:
This is a short book--only ten two-page spreads, each of which shows a baby panda and his mommy in some situation of daily living, with him thanking God for something she does, like kissing boo-boos, being patient with messes, turning frowns upside-down and more.  Written with rhythm and rhyme it is the type of thing I like to read aloud.  While a little simplistic for my six year old, I think it would be ideal for a three to five year old.  Grade:  B+

I was granted access to a digital galley via NetGalley.  I was not obligated to write any review, much less a positive one.
