Children's Books About Thanksgiving

We love pairing books with food and Thanksgiving is the perfect day to do just that.  Here are two fun books that we really enjoy. Thanksgiving is also a wonderful time to expose children to a wide variety of new foods and traditions.  What are some of the unique family traditions that you enjoy with your kids?

Thanks for Thanksgiving by Julie Markes, illustrated by Dorris Barrette.  This book was recommended to us by a friend, and boy did it deliver.  With its gorgeous illustrations and its beautiful message of finding appreciation and gratitude in all things, it is a heartwarming tale that will keep you and your children enthralled.  The best part is at the end where you have a page to write out your child's thankful thought, year after year.  Love that idea! This book is an absolute must.

The Night Before Thanksgiving is a really fun, inexpensive little book by Natasha Wing and illustrated by Tammie Lyon.  This amusing poem, which takes its cues from The Night Before Christmas, is a great way to get your kids excited for the big day. We love the illustrations of the kids cooking with their mom.
