Hibernating season will soon be coming to the Great North Woods. This puts a damper on the adventures of Lil Pup. So many of his best buds will have to go away for the winter. Mama reminds Lil Pup that not all animals hibernate, and he can at least be grateful for the joys of the autumn season—for jumping in leaf piles, eating apple treats, and celebrating the wonders of fall with his forest friends. She goes on to share her wisdom:
“I think the trick to having a thankful heart is thinking about the things that make us happy, rather than the things that don’t.”
As Mama and Lil Pup explore, she reminds him that God is the giver of all good things. Lil Pup learns that even when something fun comes to an end; his heart can be thankful when he sets his mind on the best things in his life.
This inviting addition to the best-selling God Gave Us series helps little ones to understand how giving thanks warms hearts and brings joy.
