Piglet and Robin Are Thankful by Jason Quinn is a very sweet picture book about being thankful. Though being mindfully thankful is a topic typically reserved for the month of November, this is the perfect story to explore being thankful throughout the year.
Piglet and Robin are best friends. They remind me of Mo Willems’ Elephant and Piggie in a great way and this series has a similar aged audience. In Piglet and Robin Are Thankful, the duo is armed with paper, a pen and their imaginations as they think about what they are thankful for in their everyday lives. They chat about the importance of sun and rain, which allow them to play outdoors and look at beautiful flowers. Then Piglet says he’s thankful for food.
They keep adding to their list until it feels complete, then they invite you, the reader, to do the same.
Piglet and Robin Are Thankful is a wonderfully thoughtful picture book perfect for kids ages 2-6. The colorful yet simple illustrations by Andrew Gallagher are very kid friendly and accessible. Perfect for emerging readers, they invite a young audience to name familiar objects or to describe what they see.
