From the beloved mother-daughter team of Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton comes another delightful story in the #1 New York Times bestselling Very Fairy Princess series, perfect for Thanksgiving sharing!
It's Gratitude Day at school! Gerry is ready to be grateful and kind all day long. She's excited to give her best compliments, she's donated a beautiful painting to her class's art gallery, and she even has the perfect jar contribution ready for the food drive. But when disaster strikes, it's tough to stay grateful--even on Gratitude Day! Can Gerry prove that a fairy princess always has the right attitude of gratitude?
Andrews and Hamilton forgo a traditional take on Thanksgiving for one that centers on the Gratitude Day celebrated at the school of their always sparkly heroine, Gerry. Compliments and an "Attitude of Gratitude" are the order of the day, and Gerry doesn't really struggle with either until her portrait of a cornucopia is hung sideways and mistaken for a clown, though this proves only a minor hiccup. Between the plot's references to food drives and compliment-giving, readers will have no trouble coming up with ways to incorporate a bit of gratitude into their lives, and Gerry's breezily confident narration and Davenier's airy artwork are as appealing as ever. Ages 4 8.
