WellRead July Kids Selection: Thank You by Jarvis

WellRead July Kids Selection: Thank You by Jarvis

There are so many things in the world to be thankful for! This month’s selection takes us on a journey to explore all the things – big and small – that keep our world interesting and fun. In Thank You, author and artist Jarvis reminds us that there are so many things to say thank you for. 

We hope you enjoy exploring the wonderful art in this story and that it inspires you to think of all the things in your life that you are grateful for. 

Extra things to think and do: 

  • What are you thankful for in your life? 

  • Do you know how to say ‘thank you’ in any languages besides English? Take a look inside the front cover of the book to discover how other people all over the world say ‘thank you’. 

  • ‘Tyrannosaurus’ is the longest word our main character knows. Do you know any words that are longer?

  • Thank You was created using ‘collage art’. That’s a kind of art where you cut up lots of different bits of paper, photos and other materials before arranging them all together and sticking them down to create something new. Have you ever tried making your own collage art? Ask a grown up if they’ll help you with the scissors and create a piece of collage art of something you are grateful for!
  • Can you find:

    • A ferris wheel lit up in the dark 
    • A squirrel staying dry 
    • Some fluffy baby geese 
    • A caterpillar on a leaf 
    • A crab caught in a bubble 
    • A shooting star
