Can you recommend any great Thanksgiving-themed books?


Thanksgiving is about more than turkey! It can be a wonderful opportunity to talk to your child about the history of Thanksgiving, as well as the importance of being grateful. It is also a great time to teach your child about your own Thanksgiving traditions. When choosing a book, be sure to read through it carefully to ensure that the story is age-appropriate for your child. There are many wonderful books about this important holiday, but “How Many Days to America?: A Thanksgiving Story” by Eve Bunting is a great book to teach your child about the first Thanksgiving. If you prefer a book that focuses less on the story of Thanksgiving and more on the importance of giving thanks, “Thanksgiving Bowl” by Virginia L Kroll is a fun, heart-warming story that may even spark a new family tradition!
