Fall is my favorite time of year! The cooler weather, the beautiful leaves, the smell in the air…so many things to be grateful for! As a mom and an OT, I love to find books, crafts, and other fun activities to go with every season and holiday. Below are some of my favorite books for Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving Is for Giving Thanks
by Margaret Sutherland (Author), Sonja Lamut (Author)
Sure, Thanksgiving is about pilgrims and history–and turkey, of course!–but most importantly, it’s a holiday all about everything that we are thankful for. Cheerful, colorful illustrations accompany the simple text in this celebration of family, friends, and the holiday that brings them all together.
10 Fat Turkeys
by Tony Johnston (Author), Rich Deas (Illustrator)
This silly rhyming story about ten turkeys teaches children how to count backwards. Girls and boys will gobble up this hilarious story about ten goofy turkeys and their silly antics: swinging from a vine, strutting on a boar, doing a noodle dance, and more. Veteran author Tony Johnston has written a joyful text, which first-time illustrator Richard Deas brings to life as wild and wacky fun!
by Wendi Silvano (Author), Lee Harper (Illustrator)
Turkey is in trouble. Bad trouble. The kind of trouble where it’s almost Thanksgiving . . . and you’re the main course. But Turkey has an idea–what if he doesn’t look like a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead? After many hilarious attempts, Turkey comes up with the perfect disguise to make this Thanksgiving the best ever!
