Giving Thanks is a special children's version of the Thanksgiving Address, a message of gratitude that originated with the Native people of upstate New York and Canada and that is still spoken at ceremonial gatherings held by the Iroquois, or Six Nations.

A Native American writer and illustrator have combined their talents to produce this lovely and inspiring picture book based on the traditional Mohawk morning prayer, or "Thanksgiving Address to Mother Earth." The graceful prose expresses gratitude for many of nature's gifts, including: deep, blue waters, good foods, and twinkling stars. The attractive, colorful acrylic illustrations show a wide variety of scenes from sunrise to the glow of an evening campfire. The Kaniakehaka or Mohawk text is included at the end.
