"An inspiring and accessible introduction to the practice of prayer."
"Simplicity made plain and lovely carries a nondenominational prayer of gratitude for all that is."
Booklist (STARRED review)
"Family, friends, shared meals, and shared stories are just a few of the everyday familiars with which readers will identify. But some of the spreads artistically recreate the natural world, and these pictures, rendered in digital paints and photographic textures, make an especially strong impression and capture the wonder of the universe. . . . Both poetic and child-friendly."
Christian Library Journal
"Thank You, God has a peaceful rhythm and a timeless truth. . . . [It] would make a memorable gift for a young child, likely to be shared by the whole family and revisited often."
Catholic Library World

The text, suitable as a bedtime prayer, highlights the myriad riches of the world for which we can all be thankful. . . . Teachers and librarians will find a place for this book during storytimes as they teach young children about God's role in their lives."
