Great Thanksgiving Books For Children

This time of year provides such a rich opportunity to teach traditions and values to our children. I especially love Thanksgiving time because learning thankfulness is one of the top virtues I hope to instill in my children. Not to mention a love for history and good food!

As we pack up for the library this week, I’m on the hunt for a handful of new Thanksgiving books to read. Take a peek at my “shopping” list!
