Going Beyond Traditional Thanksgiving Preparations

It's the time of year when people are preparing to gather with family and friends for the holidays. Many celebrate Thanksgiving with turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and football— but teaching children that the meaning of Thanksgiving is more than just a home-cooked meal and time off from school is essential.

Here are 15 recommended books for kids that celebrate sharing, practicing gratitude, reflecting on history, community, and family. Place the book you’d like on hold and send it to your local library. Then you can read these stories to the children in your life and help them see what the spirit of Thanksgiving is all about.
