Thank You, Bees by Toni Yuly -- ADVISABLE

Yuly, Toni Thank You, Bees. PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick Press, 2017. $15.99.

This simply-written book expresses gratitude to the sun for giving light, to bees for giving honey, to sheep for giving wool, and to many other things for the ways they help humans.

With its large font, short sentences, repetitive phrasing, and abundant picture clues, this one would work well for very new readers. The colorful illustrations are eye-catching and complement the text nicely. A good, if very basic, reminder to be grateful for the simple things.
