During Thanksgiving, a little girl points out everything that she is thankful for, from the weather to the turkey on the Thanksgiving table. This is a great read aloud book for children to read because it teaches them to be thankful for what they have.

This is a great story about children and what they are thankful for in their lives. This story is great to read around thanksgiving time. Children can relate to the things that the children in the story are thankful for. The images in the story are full of fall colors and children can get a good

feel for what fall looks like. The story covers several different things that children may be thankful for and in the end of the book there is a page where children can write what they are thankful for. This is a great book to teach children thankfulness.

Simple rhyming text expresses gratitude for small and big pleasures, from sweet puppies to dress-up clothes. It ends with "thanks for the family I love!" Detailed paintings with bold, warm colors. Excellent Thanksgiving story for young children.

Thanksgiving is so eminently reclaimable, let's STFU about pilgrims and reclaim it, it's not Columbus Day.
