Every year, starting way back when my oldest were teeny-tiny, I pull out a basket of books at the beginning of each holiday season.
My kiddos squeal with delight to see their old favorites!
It is so sweet to watch one of them snuggle up with Sweetpea and read a beloved book to her for the first time.
Here are several of the books in our Thanksgiving Basket:
A Turkey for Thanksgiving Mrs. Moose wants a turkey for Thanksgiving – a favorite!
One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pilgrims counting rhyme – a favorite!
Thanksgiving Day at Our House Thanksgiving Poems for the Very Young
Thanksgiving Mice! cute little mice put on a Thanksgiving play
Corn Is Maize interesting info on the use of corn by ancient Indians
Let’s Celebrate Thanksgiving interesting Q&A format about Thanksgiving
Cranberry Thanksgiving like the rest of the Cranberry series , this story has lots of amusing characters & mystery
The Thanksgiving Story the story of the Hopkins family’s first year in their new home
This First Thanksgiving Day a counting story
The Popcorn Book a mini history of popcorn
1621:A New Look at Thanksgiving illustrated with photos from Plimoth Plantation
Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving the story of God’s plan for Squanto
I linked to Amazon so you can get a closer look, but you can probably find many of these in a used bookstore or on Paperbackswap. I like to collect them throughout the year at thrift stores.
We need to add some new books to our basket. What Thanksgiving stories are on your favorites list?
