About the Book

*Gratitude is the greatest natural superpower. *
"Hi, I’m Frankie! But you can call me Gratitude the Great. 
How’d I get that name? Well, it all started when my cousin Hope came to visit and taught me how to make Rea bracelets, a gratitude tradition in her Brazilian family. We made a bunch and decided to give them away to thank some of the cool people we saw on the boardwalk. And the idea just exploded!"

What starts as a sweet gesture of family gratitude, quickly goes viral and soon this dynamic duo will have much more to be thankful for. In her afterword, author Pamelyn Rocco prompts children and parents alike on ways to invite gratitude into daily life and ignite their own natural superpower.
Whether you gift this book to a child you love, or buy it to read aloud to one, your daily life will be enriched by introducing a new habit of gratitude. Fans of Have You Filled a Bucket Today: A Guide to Daily Happiness and Kindness is a Kite String will love - and be grateful for - Gratitude the Great!
"Gratitude is one of the greatest gifts you can teach your kids and this book not only leaves you with ways to do that but also reminds the adults reading to not forget as well." - Jana Kramer and Michael Caussin, hosts of the Whine Down podcast and authors of The Good Fight
