Webster’s Corners teacher-librarian Lindsay Lane recommends Gratitude is my Superpower by Alicia Ortego just in time for Thanksgiving.
One of my favourite series for teaching a growth mindset is My Superpower Values by Alicia Ortego. With Thanksgiving upon us, it is the perfect time of year to talk about gratitude so I am recommending the book Gratitude is my Superpower for children of all ages. This book shows us that happiness is in everyday things, both big and small.
Whenever little Betsy starts to feel upset, she pulls out her magic stone to see the bright side of things. For example, rain helps the plants grow and rivers flow. Eventually, Betsy is able to feel gratitude without the stone because she discovers that it comes from her heart. When Betsy notices others who are down, she makes sure to pass on a stone so they too can experience the magic of gratitude.
This book helps us appreciate our family, friends, and the world around us.
“Gratitude’s in all of us and all we have to do, is stop and think how thankful we are, instead of feeling blue!”
