Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks! This book is a great introduction for younger readers.
Everyone knows that Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks—the question is, where to begin? From the turkey on the table to warm, cozy cuddles, life is full of small things and bigger pleasures. But what's most important is being able to share them with family.
Julie Markes reminds kids and adults alike about the little details that make each day enjoyable, while Doris Barrette's beautiful and striking illustrations bring her thoughtful words to life.
Perfectly in tune with what children are thankful for—such as a park, slides, and pets, and especially their family—this is a warm and genuine way to share the true Thanksgiving spirit.
