To get into the spirit of Thanksgiving, we went to Long Beach school district's Blackheath Road Pre-K Center in Lido Beach and asked preschoolers to draw a picture of what they are thankful for this year. As kids will do, they remind us of the simple things for which we should all be grateful. Take a look at what they had to say.
