Count Your Blessings by Susie Moore Hillery

Twenty blessings illustrated for the young reader. What is a blessing ? "A blessing is God's favor that brings happiness or pleasure to you" according to author Susie Moore Hillery.

Beautiful illustrations and a wide range of blessings. I liked the concept, however many of the blessings tried to rhyme and I thought they could be written better. Some of the rhymes seemed corny.
Though Ms Hillery in her opening says God is the author of blessings, when she writes the page on Church being a blessing she illustrates it with false gods rather than the church. That was very disappointing to me.
I can give this book a 2 simply for the illustrations and attempt at writing a book on blessings. I personally did not care for it.
