Counting Blessings by Eileen Spinelli {Review + GIVEAWAY}

It's so rewarding watching our little ones learn. I remember when my son first began counting–I was so overjoyed. As he grows, I also want to make sure that he can take those counting skills and use them to also add up the many blessings that God gives us day in and day out. Author, Eileen Spinelli, has recently released an endearing board book called Counting Blessings that helps remind children about those very same blessings.

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.

Eileen Spinelli is the author of many picture books and poetry collections, including A Big Boy Now, Hug a Bug, and the bestselling When Mama Comes Home Tonight, among others. When she writes a story, she has an instant audience: her twenty-five grandchildren and husband, Jerry (also a writer). Aside from story making, Eileen teaches creative writing and poetry. The Spinellis live in Media, Pennsylvania.

The illustrations are done by Lee Holland who also did Night Night, Mommy and Night Night, Daddy, which I recently reviewed a couple weeks ago. They are absolutely adorable and show a little bunny as he goes about his days being grateful for all that he has around him. I really like this book, because it offers an important message and learning experience for little ones that's all wrapped up in a short and sweet story. Whether it's five crackers to share or seven friends at the park, this little bunny has a lot to be thankful for. Young children will be reminded about all the blessings they can be thankful for in their everyday life. At the same time, they get to brush up on their counting skills as they add up those very same blessings.

If you have a little one who is just learning to count, this would make the perfect addition to their reading collection. Even if they already know how to count, reading Counting Blessings will offer a friendly reminder to take in the many blessings that surround us each and every day.

You can find Counting Blessings at most major book retailers, including Amazon. I am also happy to announce that I'm giving away a copy of Counting Blessings to one reader.
