10 Terrific Thanksgiving Books For Kids

Ah, the holidays are here! Every year they seem to sneak up on me just as I am grieving the end of Summer, feeling grateful for the beauty of Fall, and trying to adjust to daylight savings time.

It seems that Thanksgiving has become sort of the holiday that you have to get past so you can move on to Christmas. Thanksgiving has almost become an afterthought to the anticipated sales of Black Friday.

But wait! There are wonderful Thanksgiving books for kids that will entertain them and teach them about the history of the holiday. Books that will teach them about feeling grateful, being kind, and sharing precious moments with family. Reading to your kids is an excellent way to instill a love of reading.

I love holiday books and movies. They just seem more special because they are seasonal. Our society has very few things that offer delayed gratification, but reserving holiday books for the holidays is one way to appreciate them more.
