Gracias/Thanks (2009) (English/Spanish Text)
Author: Pat Mora, Illustrator: John Parra
There are so many things to be thankful for. For one young boy, it’s flying ladybugs, splashing ocean waves, a best friend, and much more. Straight from the heart of a child flows this lighthearted bilingual celebration of family, friendship, and fun. Come share the joy, and think about all the things for which you can say, "¡Gracias! Thanks!"
