Children Books for Thanksgiving...

It shouldn't surprise me that stores are already playing Christmas music the day after Halloween. Seems like it happens earlier and earlier every year. Not to be a Ba Hum Bug but it really BUGS me! It makes me feel rushed. Like I can't even enjoy Fall or Thanksgiving! So to ward off the Christmas chaos. I am embracing Autumn!! Here are some Thanksgiving and Fall theme books that you and your young readers might enjoy. Maybe one of these books will become part of your Thanksgiving traditions.

In November By Cynthia Rylant has beautiful pictures. Good for ages 3-7
Leaf Jumpers By Carole Gerber ages 3-6 Great for your budding naturalist or scientist. This is a great book to read before a walk. Then you can look for the leaves mentioned in the book.

Thanksgiving Day By Anne Rockwell ages 3-7 This book gives a light history on the Pilgrims coming to America and meeting the Wampanoag people.

Thanksgiving Mice! By Bethany Roberts 2-6 Good for pre schoolers but older kids may enjoy the mice putting on a play about Thanksgiving.

Turkey Bowl age 4-?Great pictures! Even big kids like being read to. A good book about growing up and traditions. Football theme.

What books do you and your family like to read during this time of year??
