A Thankful Rock...... Say What?

So this happened.....




We found this book at Michael's and since we have like ALL Mercer Mayer's "Little Critter" books and have LOVED reading them ever since our oldest was teeny-tiny, we just had to grab this new one. Fast forward to about a week later, I finally got around to reading it to our kids, and it made me sooooo happy! What a fabulous book and perfect for this season. Yes, I am getting a little too excited over a kiddie book, but it's just that great. You have to find this simple little book that speaks volumes on thankfulness!

And then this happened...........

We headed down to the creek and each collected our favorite stone and then....... we did this...........



When you read the book, you'll understand the rock thing. These are our thankful rocks, and that's all I'm going to say about that because you just have to read the book for yourself.... really, you just have to  read the book! Promise me you'll read this book to your kids, big and little, and remind yourselves of how important it is to be grateful each and every day!






It'll make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside! And we all need some warm and fuzzy right?

    1. We have put some of them on our coffee table and EVERY time I look at them I feel oh so grateful! Sometimes a little visual reminder is a really good thing! Thanks for visiting Julia!

  3. What a clever idea to tie into the book! I have not read it but I am going to put this on my son's christmas list. I like warm and fuzzy. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday.
