The Thank You Book
Carole Stuart, Arthur Robins
(Running Press, April 30, 2001)
In The Thank You Book, Carole Stuart teams up with acclaimed illustrator Arthur Robins to teach young children that combining two words, "thank" and "you," makes a powerful everyday statement. The book takes readers from breakfast through bedtime in the company of a young brother and sister. The boy, who is late for school, thanks his father for a comb to tame his unruly hair. The girl, helped by a teacher in a difficult project, receives a smile after saying "thank you." Robins's witty illustrations keep the lesson light.
