More About P. K. Hallinan
P.K. Hallinan began writing children's books 40 years ago when his wife asked him to make a book for their two young sons as a Christmas gift. He did, and the feedback he got from friends and neighbors inspired him to write more books. Since then, P.K. has written and illustrated nearly 100 children's books and has sold more than 9,000,000 copies worldwide.
P.K. was born in Los Angeles in 1944 and spent his youth primarily in Bethesda, Maryland and in the San Fernando Valley. Although P.K. never studied art, his disappointment with the work of the artist assigned to illustrate his first book motivated him to learn to draw. He has been illustrating his own books ever since.
"If I did any one thing right," says P.K., "I decided very early on to write books that help children and parents alike have better and happier lives. That decision has kept many of my books in-print for more than 25 years, because the values I teach are timeless."
His newest book, "A LIFE THAT MATTERS: Five Steps to Making a Difference", is his first book for adults. In it he describes five simple ways to add significance to virtually any career.
P.K. is also an ordained minister. He lives with his wife, Jeanne, and his boxer, Betty, in the mountains above Ashland and also at the beach, in Brookings, Oregon.
Reviews - What do customers think about I'm Thankful Each Day!?
Good Nov 5, 2007
This book is good. More for 5 year olds and up, I would think. I do have to explain a lot to my 4 and 2 1/2 year old what the words mean. But still, this is a nice book. Loving and fun! Pictures are bright and cheery!
Terrific Book! May 5, 2006
This book is wonderful. My daughter and I read it every night at bedtime, and I never get tired of it. Now, I am on a mission to collect ALL of PK Hallinan's books. I think they all have a great message, they are well written, have beautiful pictures and are just all around the best kids' books I have encountered. Definitely a must have for all toddler moms-- and moms with young kids!
Great Book!! Dec 22, 2005
This is one of my favorite books to read to my son (almost 3 yrs. old). I love how the author reminds us to be thankful for the things that are easy to overlook, like the power of the mind or the look of an autumn day. It's helped everyone in our house to stop and be thankful for even the little things in our lives.
Thankful For This Book Aug 17, 2005
This book is a perfect way to teach children how to be thankful for all the wonderful things God has given us. It shows that we should be thankful for non-material things. It is a precious book for parent and child to read together. It reminded me of a few things I needed to be thankful for!
Great Book Aug 10, 2004
I found this book at Marshalls, who knew that this author has other wonderful books. I have been reading it to my infant every chance I get - it really reinforces a lot of healthy attitudes and the basic tenets that I want to instill in him. It highlights a personal relationship that you can have with your God.
