Saying Grace

A Prayer for Thanksgiving

From the jacket flap: “Grace’s mind was racing. What was that spelling word that meant “great generosity in giving”? She squeezed her eyes shut, and it came to her. Bounty. That was the word! Journey back in time with Grace and relive both the hardships and blessings along with her pioneer family. Saying Grace tells the story of one girl and her discovery of the value of mealtime prayer at her family’s first Thanksgiving.
 
Grace is 8 years old and what her mother calls a “fretter.” Instead of praying and trusting in God’s goodness, she frets, or, worries about what’s going to happen. This beautifully illustrated picture book follows her through all four seasons, ending as it started, in fall.  Grace’s story is a sweet and gentle way to remind the reader to pray, to trust, and to be grateful for the bounty in their lives.
