Picture Books - Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks by Margaret Sutherland and illustrated by Sonja Lamut 2000

There are lots and lots of children's books about Thanksgiving. Some are even known to spark controversy about the day's origins, but this book is just simple and to the point. The reader is able to "count" with the book's characters the reasons they are thankful. The story really focuses in on the special idea behind the day. Basically, being thankful for family, friends and the simple pleasures of life. The pages are colorful with easy to read text. Great for little ones that you are trying to explain the day to and those just learning to read. Suggest for ages 3 or so and up to around 6.

Hope you all have a wonderful day and have many, many things to be thankful. I know I sure do.
