Thank You - for everything!

Thank You is a warm and endearing picture book about celebrating the small things in our day-to-day lives.  Author and illustrator Jarvis tells us more in this short video.

In Thank You (Walker Books), a young boy shares all the things he is grateful for - from the sun and moon for day and night time, to clouds for the puddles and his toothbrush for his smile...  

This is a gorgeous picture book to read with young children, using it to begin discussions around what they enjoy in their everyday world - and, of course, when they are learning to say 'thank you'.  

There are many funny moments to enjoy in these pages ('I had a reason to thank the elephant, but I seem to have forgotten...') and the collage-style illustrations, also by Jarvis, are engaging and full of energy.

You can find out more about how Thank You was created, including how the text began with a song, and how the illustrative style developed, in our Q&A with Jarvis.
