Thank You, Day!

Words by Charlie Hopper; Pictures by Penelope Dullaghan

A child is bursting with gratitude for all that the day has brought in this love letter to the natural world. Thank You, Day! is a perfect rhyming, read-aloud picture book by songwriter Charlie Hopper and award-winning illustrator Penelope Dullaghan.

Let’s hear it for the day, you all! With heartfelt feeling and joy, a kid gives kudos and kisses, hugs and high fives, shout-outs and simple thanks to everyday wonders in this sweet ode to slowing down, being present, and paying attention to the world around us.

Charlie Hopper is a songwriter who lives and works in Indianapolis, Indiana. Thank You, Day! is his first picture book.
