Review; Thank You, Miyuki by Roxanne Marie Galliez and Seng Soun Ratanavanh

Earlier this year I recieved an ARC of the picture book Thank You, Miyuki by Roxanne Marie Galliez and Seng Soun Ratanavanh through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
Miyuki and her grandfather return in an enchanting intergenerational story enhanced by Seng Soun Ratanavanh's gorgeous Japanese-inspired illustrations. Miyuki's curiosity is piqued by her grandfather's morning meditation routine, and she is eager to learn this new skill. Her wise and patient grandfather first takes her on a walk in the garden. "When do we start to meditate?" she asks repeatedly. Grandfather enjoys the warm sun and stops to smell a rose, inviting Miyuki to join him. Their walk in the garden, filled with many tender moments, heightens their gratitude for each other and for the world around them. Miyuki comes to understand that in the small acts of mindfulness throughout her day, she learned how to meditate.

My Thoughts on the Book
Thank You, Miyuki is a sweet book about meditiation and it has some really amazing artwork. It might be a bit short, but it was a nice read overall.
