It’s almost here, everyone–Thanksgiving is just around the bend. To celebrate, we thought we’d talk about some of our favorite books for this Thanksgiving!
Thank You Bear
Though not a traditional Thanksgiving picture book, Greg Foley’s Thank You Bear is a beautiful story about recognizing the value of thoughtfulness. Some of the other animals may not think that Bear’s gift for Mouse is anything special, but Bear’s doubts are laid to rest with Mouse’s exclamation that his present is the “greatest thing ever!” The soft illustrations and moving story make this a perfect book for younger and older readers alike. You can find Thank You Bear on Firefly this November!
I SPY Thanksgiving
On SeeSaw this November we have a brand new I SPY reader from Jean Marzollo and Walter Wick: I SPY Thanksgiving! This is a wonderful way to help your kids gain reading confidence and get them excited about all the traditional trappings of Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving, Curious George
What can we say? It’s Curious George and Thanksgiving, so you can be sure there are a lot of laughs and heartfelt moments. George is so excited about Thanksgiving, he loves everything: the food, the parade, and especially his family and friends. Told through a series of fun, rhyming poems, this tabbed board book is perfect for little fingers. Find it on November’s Honeybee!
