I just filled out the form for my kindergartener's book order and I was surprised by the lack of Thanksgiving books to choose from this month. It was full of Christmas books but come on, don't skip over Thanksgiving.
There are lots of lessons and fun stories to tie into Turkey Day. When I was little Thanksgiving wasn't a really big holiday to my family and to be honest, I didn't even like turkey. I do know, sorta. But anyway, Thanksgiving was a holiday we made dinner for and people stopped by but it wasn't really a "celebration". Some of us didn't even change out of our pajamas. While I won't be putting the kids in their best clothes (hello gravy stains!) I plan on marking the start of some new traditions this year.
One of the things I began this year was reading Halloween themed books to the kids each night for the week leading up to Halloween. Just Halloween books. And I'm going to do it again for Thanksgiving. I bought or already had these and this Sunday we'll start our countdown.
Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving book?
