I am delighted to recommend 100 Ways to be Thankful by Lisa Gerry. This National Geographic for Kids publication is aimed at middle school age kids.
I like this book on many levels. November is a perfect time to think and talk about being thankful. This can be hard to do with middle school age kids but this book presents the topic in a way that will connect with them. There are literally 100 great ideas on ways to be thankful and each one is presented in a crisp, colorful summary. The best way to show you what I mean is with pictures of some of the pages.
Some of the ideas deal with attributes like curiosity, and imagination.
Some honor interests in subjects like science and art.
Some encourage kids to appreciate family and friends.
My favorites ideas are those that encourage actions like volunteering, introducing yourself to new kids, and practicing random acts of kindness.
Like many middle school age boys, reading is not a favorite pastime for my grandson. One of the many things I like about 100 Ways to be Thankful is that each idea has a brief summary and it doesn’t require a lot of reading to “get it.” This may be an excellent resource for writing a required paper too.
