Favorite Picture Books for the Thanksgiving Holiday

Here are a few of my favorite titles to read with children in this Thankful season.

My first Thanksgiving, by Tomie dePola gives a short history of Thanksgiving and how families currently celebrate this holiday.  The text is very simple and perfect for a preschooler.

I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie, by Allison Jackson is a remake of the classic rhyme - I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.  Kids will get a kick out of the silly text and pictures about an overzealous Thanksgiving guest.

This Plump and Perky Turkey outsmarts a whole village whose soul aim is to have a perfect Thanksgiving turkey for their holiday meal.
Preschool and Grade school children will giggle over this cleaver tale.

In Setting the Turkeys Free, the story follows a group of "hand" turkeys that escape from a sly old fox.  This book might spur a creative urge to make some hand turkeys of your own.

Share some of these great Thanksgiving themed books with a child in your life!
