I do have a collection of books about Thanksgiving that we annually read, and they range from serious to fun. Thankfully our local library also has a wonderful collection of Thanksgiving books, so that I can avoid adding onto our house because of the need for more book shelves. 🙂 So, here are some favorites of ours that we own and borrow. (Note: all book covers are used from Amazon pictures!)
When her family is going through a hard time, Mary struggles to be grateful. By hearing about the sacrifices of the early settlers, she is inspired to be thankful for all that she does have.
This story talks about the real heroes of the first Thanksgiving: the Native Americans who shared what they had with the desperate Pilgrims.
This book is one we have enjoyed in the past: a fun way of presenting a familiar story.
Beautifully illustrated thankful reflections!
The almost unknown woman (Sarah Hale) whose campaign led to a day set aside for giving thanks!
A family’s annual tradition is in jeopardy due to the weather!
I first found these other titles when I was a classroom teacher. They are just fun!
For all animal fans!
An unexpected twist to Thanksgiving Day!
I almost have this one memorized. Again – an unexpected ending
And for families …
This beautiful book is intended to be a family keepsake with space for families to write annual reflections. (Alas, I have not kept on mine – maybe this year? ) The story of the original Thanksgiving is included, as well as a free audio cd full of Thanksgiving music.
