Thank You, God is a prayer of gratitude in picture book form. Author and religious education professor J. Bradley Wigger presents an extended family thanking God throughout their day for everything they have and see.

Digital paints and photographic textures are employed by Jago to illustrate the multi-ethnic family enjoying a meal, a campfire, the natural world, and each other’s love. The eye-catching artwork is radiant, emphasizing the beauty of the earth and the joy of family and home. There is a particularly dear page of animals.

Thank You, God has a peaceful rhythm and a timeless truth. Every scene begins with “Thank You, God” and the final thanks is for His love for us. The author reminds us to be grateful for the sun and stars and also for blessings less obvious: for new words learned, for rain, for restful sleep.

Thank You, God would make a memorable gift for a young child, likely to be shared by the whole family and revisited often.
