Counting Blessings by Eileen Spinelli | Children's Book Review

Counting Blessings by Eileen Spinelli

A book was provided whcih left me delighted. The following review was prepared just for you!

Eileen Spinelli
Illustrated by Lee Holland
Juvenile Fiction (ages 4-8)

Count along from 1 to 10,
remember your blessings
again and again.

Cuddle up with your little ones 
and count numbers as well as the 
many blessings in their lives.

Children count along from 1 to 10, following the sweet rhyming text by beloved author Eileen Spinelli and the cute and cuddly illustrations by Lee Holland. Along with counting, this padded cover board book teaches children to see the blessings in life. With whimsy and joy, Counting Blessings captures the attention of young children, filling their minds with numbers and their hearts with happiness.

My Thoughts

One of the universal things that we all do with our little ones is teach them to count. Whether we are buttoning up jammies or climbing stairs it just seems instinctual to begin to count. Before you know it your child will be chiming in as well. 

In Counting Blessings Eileen Spinelli has taken that everyday habit and included a twist. Instead of counting buttons or stairs she is counting blessings! The story centers around a sweet little bunny and follows him through his day counting up all the things that are blessings for him and his friends. In the end he comes to the conclusion that they have so many blessings that it would be impossible to count them all. 

The concept is a wonderful one but the pictures put it over the top. I just adore the beautiful illustrations by Lee Holland. His use of vibrant colors and sweet little animal creatures make the book a true delight for the eyes. This is a book that I am sure you won't mind reading again and again to your little one.
