Thanksgiving Books

The Night before Thanksgiving by Natasha Wing. It is fun to read a book that has cute illustrations and mentions so many of the Thanksgiving traditions, from baking pies to watching the parades,  and of course lots of family feasting.
The Littlest Pilgrim by Brandi Dougherty.  This is a cute book about a girl who has similar struggles and learns to have a friend through the process.
Turkey Trouble by Wendy Silvano.  Ever think about Thanksgiving from the perspective of a turkey?  This book is super silly.  It will have kids giggling as the turkey dresses up to avoid being “caught”.
Thanksgiving on Thursday by Mary Pope Osborne. This story follows Jack and Annie as they travel back and relive the first Thanksgiving.
Cranberry Thanksgiving by Wende Devlin.  This is a re-release of a classic story of a Grandma and her granddaughter.  Each Thanksgiving they invite someone who is lonely over to share dinner with them.  This year Grandma almost looses her secret recipe for Cranberry  bread.
Thanks for Thanksgiving by Julie Markes.  Being thankful for the little things is a great trait to have.  This story focuses on all the blessing that we have.  The pictures are great for opening discussions of the things your child is thankful for.
