This resource was created by the PJ Library at the PJ Library Educator's Center. Created for Family programs, this resource and its activities can be utilized, possibly with modifications, in a variety of children's learning environments.

Synopsis from the resource:

"In this program, families explore the wondrous abilities of their bodies and examine different ways of expressing gratitude for all that their bodies can do. The take-home project from this program is a beautifully framed thank-you sign, upon which children have dictated notes expressing thanks for specific body parts. Families are encouraged to display this sign at home and to continue to reflect on the miraculous powers of the human body. "
