As a parent, I often times find it difficult to explain things in a way my children will completely understand. Holiday’s are one of those times for some reason. I can explain the historical aspects, but not so well on a child’s level of understanding, if that makes sense. I tend to look for books that can help with this. Between the wording and the pictures, I find that it seems to click for them.
Here are our five favorite Thanksgiving books for children.
When you don’t live close to family, this book makes you wish you did! I love how the book follows a traditional American Family Thanksgiving celebration, including all of the events and preparation leading up to dinner. It reminds me of when I was a child and how we got up in the morning to watch the big parade, welcoming our family, playing with cousins, saying grace and eating as a family. This book just warms my heart.
