Thank You God For Mommy
By Amy Parker
Mommies do so much for us!
It’s time to thank God for the blessing they are.
In this adorable board book,
a little panda thanks God for his wonderful mommy-a mommy who gives hugs and cuddles,
who takes great care of him, and most importantly, who offers love and guidance for her precious panda cub.
Thank You, God, for Mommy,
And lullabies so sweet-
The beating of her great, big heart
Sings me right to sleep.
The love and sacrifices of mothers everywhere will be celebrated by mother and child as they snuggle up together and say Thank You, God, for Mommy.
Thank You God For Daddy
By Amy Parker
Daddies do so much for us! It’s time to thank God for the blessing they are.
In this adorable board book, a little lion cub thanks God for his wonderful daddy—a daddy who gives big hugs and piggy back rides, who takes great care of him, and most importantly, who offers love, guidance, and encouragement.
Thank You, God, for Daddy;
He scares monsters away.
When Daddy says, “Don’t be afraid,”
I know that it’s okay.
The love and sacrifices of fathers will be celebrated by children everywhere each time they snuggle up to read Thank You, God, for Daddy.
This Blonde’s Review:
Since both of these books are by Amy Parker and will receive similar reviews I decided to review them together.
These books are children’s stories celebrating the love of Mommies and Daddies. They were adorable stories that my children loved. They celebrate dads with talk of fixing things and mom with their healing kisses. The stories do talk about the stereotypical roles of moms or dads, but since many parents do fit those roles most children will see that as being Just Like their mommy or daddy.
Both stories are illustrated by Frank Endersby and are adorable. My children loved the pictures in the books and using Lions and Pandas were excellent choices. They are cute and detailed without being too busy.
If you like stories that talk of prayer and thanking God for the people you love then these are excellent choices to share with your children.
