Encouraging children from an early age to be grateful and thank God is important. God teaches us in His word that we should always give thanks. That is part of our Christian life and worship to Him.
In these days I have been evaluating several books that we can use for this purpose. Involving children in reading is vital. The first book that our children should know is the Bible. The bible is inspired by God, useful for teaching on many topics. However, there are several books inspired by the Word of God with beautiful illustrations that our little ones can use. Below I will share with you at least 5 books that can be of great help to you.
These books can help you to teach and encourage your kids about thanks giving:
These books can be part of your library and you can use them at any time. Giving thanks to God and having a grateful heart is one of the best teachings we can give to our children. We must encourage them to be grateful all the time!
O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His compassion and lovingkindness endure forever! – Psalm 107:1

Having a reading time with our children before bed can be a challenge. Today we live surrounded by many distractions that do not edify. Having a time to share with family, or between parents and children before going to bed is healthy. Having a devotional time or reading the word of God is even more so.
Today I want to share with you this wonderful book that came to my hands “Night Night Devotions” by Amy Parker. Since I was a mother, I was passionate about reading and now I want to instill that practice in my son. He is still very small, but starting now to read him devotionals before bed is excellent for him.
This beautiful book (because it really has beautiful illustrations) contains 90 devotionals inspired by the Word of God. It brings to light key biblical passages in a beautiful and very structured way. Excellent for children between the ages of 3 to 7 years.
Not only does it give you the opportunity to read them, but you can also encourage and practice a prayer time with them. This book includes devotions of both the old testament and the new testament, it really is very complete!
