About the Book

My Amazing Day: A Celebration of Wonder and Gratitude

 A board book for ages 0-3

CoverPhotoWith vibrant, engaging photography, this board book follows a young child’s day. Simple yet powerful words illuminate the joy to be found in everyday activities. The book ends with a meaningful, age-appropriate expression of gratitude, and a fun opportunity to connect each “thank you!” with its related activity earlier in the book.

My Amazing Day is one of very few books that addresses gratitude for the 0-3 year-old age group in a way that does not rely on any particular spiritual path. You can learn more about the compelling scientific studies in recent years regarding the benefits of expressing gratitude, read inspiring quotes related to gratitude, and share ideas for gratitude traditions here.

My Amazing Day is a 6” x 6” x 13/16”, 26-page board book.

A board book has thick pages which make it easy for little hands to flip and hard for little hands to rip.
