About the Book
Gratitude, the attitude of being thankful, can get you through a bad day and sometimes, even a tough season in life.
That is the simple yet profound message of How Grizzly Found Gratitude. In Dennis Mathew’s third book, we meet a wandering and lost Grizzly who is heartbroken about missing home. Unexpectedly, he meets Bird and her friends, and they challenge him to rise above his circumstances and see the beauty all around him. With Bird’s help, gratitude teaches Grizzly not to take anything for granted, the big or the small.
In Dennis Mathew’s How Grizzly Found Gratitude, young readers will learn to take an inventory of what they are grateful for and to have a better life because of it.
