The Power of Gratitude: Unlocking Hidden Treasures by Ruth Maille tells the story of Orbit, a character in the shape of our planet, who is going to a sleepover camp. Orbit and all his friends are excited about the camp and can’t wait to see each other again. When they get there, Orbit teaches all his friends what gratitude is. Being thankful for people and things as well as the emotions that we feel when we are grateful for something. When events don’t go as planned, there are still reasons to be grateful for what we CAN do instead. The more often we practice gratitude, the more things we will find to be grateful for. All the children do a fantastic job of finding 26 things to be grateful for, each one beginning with a letter of the alphabet.
The Power of Gratitude is a fantastic little book, educational for both children and adults alike. We can all do with a reminder to be grateful for what we have. Ruth Maille’s unique way of using the alphabet to create examples serves as a double lesson for children. The book is based on Ruth’s personal research and children’s understanding of the world around them. Children need positive encouragement for emotional development and relationship building. This is a delightful book, filled with beautiful pictures and a new way of learning through Orbit. Each character is unique with their own personality and features. I love the images which are a work of art. I recommend this book to all parents for their children.
