This song was used as the music for Psalm 118. This song, like Froggie Learns the Gospel, Song 007, was written by Quentin Reed. Like Froggie, and Spring, Song 026, this song is about animals. It is about a white rabbit, a bear, two little fishes, a little brown owl, a bashful racoon, a squirrel, and a chipmunk (as shown in the images to the left), and what these animals are thankful for. I’ve had a lot of fun with this song over the years. When I first taught the CTR-8 class in Primary (see CTR-8 Testimonies, Song 005), we formed a class choir, and sang this song several times, for a Relief Society Party, a Ward Party, and a stake activity. I’d play the guitar and the kids would sing and hold up a photo of one of the animals. We repeated this for Melanie’s primary in Katy, and for the Hillcrest Ward primary in Cedar City. The kids, the teachers, and those we sang for have always enjoyed this song. I enjoy it also, and think the song has a good message, especially for those who will listen to the message.
