Gratitude Is My Superpower is a cute story to teach kids about gratitude and how to find it in their own lives. Betsy’s mom gives her a Gratitude stone and how to use its magic to turn negatives into positives.

“But then I remember the children who aren’t as lucky as me, / To have a healthy, warm meal, cooked by their mummy.”

Betsy quickly learns to be thankful for what she has and that things happen for a reason. I love how she’s able to shift her mindset and apply what she’s learned to real world situations a kid would find themselves in.

This book would make a great read aloud or addition to a classroom library. Sometimes it’s hard to remember the good when life gets tough or isn’t going your way, even as adults. The magic in this book is a helpful reminder to exercise gratitude daily and be thankful.
