Thanksgiving Books 2010

Here are some books for you to consider for Thanksgiving!

I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie by Alison Jackson
I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie (Picture Puffins)
This story is very funny and is sure to get giggles out of your children. This is a fun Thanksgiving Read.

The Pilgrims Thanksgiving from A to Z by Laura Crawford
Pilgrims' Thanksgiving From A To Z, The
This book is full of infomration about Thanksgiving. It isn't just a picture book with "P is for Pilgrim". It has the letter, what it stands for, then at least a full paragraph elaborating on the item. So you could focus on the letters with your little ones (young toddlers, pretoddlers, and babies), but also go into much more historical detail with your older children (toddlers, preschoolers, an children). I really like this book.

Thanksgiving Day by Anne Rockwell
Thanksgiving Day
This is about chilren recounting what they learned about Thanksgiving Day. It has good information while still being interesting.

Thanksgiving Mice! by Bethany Roberts
Thanksgiving Mice!
A group of mice put on a play about the first Thanksgiving.

The Thanksgiving Surprise by Peggy Archer
Turkey Surprise
Two brothers go looking for a turkey to eat on Thanksgiving. They end up coming home with a giant pumpkin instead. This is a fun story.

I'm A Turkey by Jim Arnosky
I'm A Turkey!This is a fun turkey book to read. I would get this from the library, but probably not buy it.

A Plump and Perky Turkey by Teresa Bateman
A Plump and Perky Turkey
Raegan mentioned this last year, but it is so good it must be mentioned again. This is our favorite turkey book this year, and really is worth it to own this one. I like it so much I found myself a little taken aback when the librarian didn't read this for story time to the Kindergarteners today--she read a different turkey book! Then I had to laugh at myself. So it is a good one.
