This easy-to-use, colourful app teaches children the prayer Modeh Ani and encourages children to be thankful for what they have, building the quality of gratitude. Every day, as the child says Modeh Ani, they fill in a leaf on their ‘Tree of Thanks’ recording what they are grateful for. They can take a photo, record their voice or draw what they are grateful for, and hang the leaf in the tree. Each leaf that is filled in gets the tree watered. If a leaf has not been filled in for a day, the tree wilts and recovers only when another leaf of gratitude has been filled in. The tree gets filled with leaves that can be saved and viewed at any time. Earn golden leaves for items that you are super-grateful for when you proceed in the quiz that teaches you more about the prayer Modeh Ani.
Do your children take what they have for granted? Every morning, Jews wake up and say the prayer Modeh Ani, where we say thank you to God that we have woken up and had our soul has been returned to us. We are grateful! This app not only teaches Jewish children the prayer Modeh Ani in a fun and interactive way, but helps parents encourage children to be grateful for the many good things that they have, learning about gratitude every day.

Does not work
While I am so happy to support Jewish Apps, and this one looked so wonderful, it just does not work. I tried it on numerous devices and it keeps going from the start page to the intro page and back. Maybe it's just a glitch. I will be patient but I hope they get it working soon.
