A Few of our Favorite Thanksgiving Reads!
Over the River and Through the Woods
Illustrated by Lynn Cravath
This was a favorite as we broke in to the classic tune!
Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks
by: Margaret Sutherland
We loved this book because it is about being thankful for everyday things. Our favorite page in the book said "I am thankful for lollipops that turn my tongue purple...or green or orange or red or blue."
The First Thanksgiving (board book)
By: Dana Stewart
This is a super cute and simple book. Our favorite part is at the end of the book when the indians and pilgrims sat around the table. "Then everyone joined hands and said, "Thank you God!" What a happy first Thanksgiving day!"
This First Thanksgiving Day - A counting Story
By: Laura Krauss Melmed
Illustrated by Mark Buehner
This book show the Indian and Pilgrim children doing their outdoor chores as it leads up the the big Thanksgiving feast. The children work together and have such a fun time doing their chores. It is illustrated beautifully.
I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie
By: Alison Jackson
The girls loved the repetition and "reading" along with Mommy! The story itself was a bit disappointing. We know and love I know an old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly and that story made sense. This one on the other hand, didn't seem to have a good order. from last to first she swallowed bread, 10 layer wedding cake, a pot, turkey, salad, squash, roll, cider, and pie.
