A fun, rhyming storybook that introduces young children to God as the giver of all good gifts
Eric is so blessed by his tasty toast that he just has to say “thanks!” But who should he thank?
Join Eric as he embarks upon an epic adventure of gratitude that takes him all the way to the giver of all good gifts!
Dai Hankey is a Welsh church-planting pastor who's also a DJ and rapper. Dai's first book for children uses his rapping gifts to create a fun, punchy story that young children will love to listen to.
Combined with stunning new artwork by Xavier Bonet, Eric says thanks will quickly become a firm favorite with young children.

Children love repetition and rhyme. That's why they never tire of singing about those wheels on the bus going round and round. Dai Hankey's superb book on thankfulness to God keys into this. Its brilliant use of rap is sure to be a winner with the young. Whether you're a parent, a children's worker or a pastor wondering how to do something different for children in the service here is a great resource.
Research has proven that gratitude is the healthiest human emotion. Kids who grow up grateful end up being great adults, and here’s a simple tool to teach it to your children.
The Lord instructs us to teach our kids “in the way”. Get comfy, open this book with your kids and together embark on a delightful journey of discovery. It all starts with a humble piece of toast as Eric traces his way along a fun, rhyming path of thankfulness all the way to our generous God, his word - and a timely invitation for us all to join Eric in thanking God for his many good gifts. I’ve got a feeling Eric could start something quite lovely in lots of little - and big - lives!
What a little cracker of a book this is. Kids will love it. Even big (sort of) kids like this will love it. Get on it. Outstanding. Loved it. 5 stars.... continue reading
It’s brilliant to have children’s books that emphasize the importance of saying ‘thank you’, but that also, crucially, introduce us to the generous God from whom we have received every good thing we have.... continue reading
The boys enjoyed the story which is written in a rhyming style and gave it the thumbs up. Words like epic and awesome helped them engage with the content.... continue reading
Bought this and Eric says Sorry. Both very good and the story brings Eric to the point of realising that God is who we need to thank. Loses a star purely because the colours of the illustrations are a bit grey. Do get brighter.
Congratulations Dai Hankey for two delightfully presented stories of little Eric learning the lessons of life that bring God's blessing. Please continue to produce more stories like this that appeal to all ages, even Grannies like me!
What a lovely, fun , God centred book, I can't wait to give these out on our book sunday to the 5's and below. Beautifully illustrated, fun rhyming text and very heart warming.
We don't own this yet but we just watched Dai read it on the video. We got to the end and all 4 kids (ages 5-10) spontaneously went "That's BRILLIANT!!" Can't wait to have a copy. :-)
