Book Review: “The Thank You Letter” by Jane Cabrera

As far as we’ve come, technologically, I still love the feel of a personal, handwritten note. I have wonderful friends who regularly send notes of gratitude, which reminds me how nice it is to be the recipient. I want my kids to learn to do the same. I received a review copy of “The Thank You Letter” by Jane Cabrera and recently read it with my six-year old.

The story starts off with a little girl named Grace’s birthday wish list. She ends up receiving most of the items on her list and sends messages of gratitude. Eventually, she realizes how nice it is to thank people for what they do, and starts writing notes to people, animals, and nature. The book ends with her receiving thank you notes from everyone she sent notes to, making her feel good and appreciated all around.

It’s an adorable book which teaches kids the simple, yet powerful act of appreciation.
