Thanksgiving is almost upon us and it’s a good idea to let our kids know what the festive occasion is all about. Here are 4 popular Thanksgiving books which will make enjoyable reads for kids this season.

Thanks for Thanksgiving (by Julie Markes): There is always, always, always something to be thankful for, and Thanksgiving is just an excuse to give thanks for all the little blessings that we have. Thanks for Thanksgiving has beautiful illustrations and thoughtful words which remind us to be grateful for all the small things in our life which make us happy.

The Thankful Book (by Todd Parr): Music makes one want to dance, having feet helps one run around and play, hugs and kisses from parents and loved ones make one feel loved. The Thankful Book reminds one of all life’s special little moments through its brightly colored pages, ideal for preschool-aged kids.

Thank You, Thanksgiving (by David Milgrim): Thank You, Thanksgiving is the story of a little girl who goes on an errand for her mother. She feels grateful for the birds singing along the way, the beautiful clouds in the sky and the warmth of her boots.

The Great Turkey Race (by Steve Metzger): Farmer Joe needs to pick a Thanksgiving turkey and Cassie, Wing and Ollie decide to have a contest for the same. Who will emerge to be the winner from among the three friends who live together on a farm?

Happy reading and Happy Thanksgiving!
